GSN doing new 1 vs 100...

I think it kind of backfired. People who were satisfied with a given figure when there's $50K available were just as satisfied with the same figure when there was $100K available. That meant they took home the same amount in fewer questions.

They apparently used the same 100 for all five shows. Carrie Ann seemed to point out the same groups in every show, occupying the same numbers, including the cute librarian in #31.

No they didn't, I have a friend who was in the mob for only two of the shows last week. The groups may have been the same, but they switched out the rest.

My bad, then.

FYI, the .pdf's were wrong for this week. They're running new eps. (Either that, or last night's ep was the 12th produced.)

I believe that's correct, they aired reruns on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, so yesterday's and today's episodes are probably the ones that were swapped out. Reruns start on Wednesday with episode three.

How rare are episodes with two contestants (like the one they just aired)?

Recently, GSN has aired half-hour episodes where they had the "you get to see the question (but not the answers) before deciding whether to stop or continue if you have used both of your helps" rule, and episodes where they did not.  Which rule was first for the half-hour version, and when did it change?

Those conditions are true, along with that of passing a certain level (10k I believe) before getting the "sneak peek."

GSN's 10PM episode on 1/14 had somebody at the $10,000 level with both of their helps gone, and he didn't get the sneak peek (or at least they didn't show him getting it - they didn't show the question board, so theoretically it is possible they did give him the sneak peek but it was edited for some reason).

That way, they could fit the carryover and another full game in without going through the minute or minute-and-a-half rigmarole of showing and debating about the sneak peek.
