The one show currently on GSN where people buzz in before a question is finished is Catch 21. But those episodes are over 10 years old. Most of the time though, they come up with the correct answer.

Also, if Higgins is hosting Split Second, it means America Says is out of production.

I'm sure researchers and focus groups and whatever other homogenizing forces have convinced producers that the average viewer does not.

Hey, if they wanna stage a broken version of the game, they can do that. I haven't been GSN's target audience for a solid decade anyhow.

What makes you think that? Knowing GSN, after banging out 65 episodes of one show, they'll flip the sets over and shoot 65 eps. of the other all within a month.

The beauty of Jeopardy is very much that the home audience gets those few extra seconds to process each clue, which exponentially adds to the "play along" factor.  Apparently, the decision has been made that "Split Second" will benefit from the same sort of structure.  I'll still have a soft spot for the more dynamic and strategic original version.

I think there's distance between Jeopardy and the stodgy pace of the Monty version. Remaining optimistic.

It looks nice with all the red and gold, at least.

The set does look pretty decent. Looks like scoring is in points instead of dollars...not really surprising given the precedent that GSN's other originals have set, but it does make the Countdown round seem kind of redundant.

Well, if they wanted to tell fans of the original that this was watered down, they could hardly do better than "words that rhyme with 'think'". But the set looks nice enough, and JMH is a fine host; I'm still looking forward to it.

This is like the least important thing but putting the host on the right side of the screen looks weird.

That crossed my mind as well, although I do love the giant stopwatch as a game board.

The set is nice, but too “warm” for me. I wouldn’t mind it being red during the Countdown and bonus rounds to emphasize the tension, but a cool blue for the main game.

That is a hell of a time slot to plop your new game show into.

Right?

I hope they can find a space for reruns.

(Kind of an interesting gauntlet of Master Minds, People Puzzler, Switch and America Says soon to be Split Second.

GSN is doing an informal survey...the last question leads me to believe we'll get a sneak peek on Youtube of this or Hey Yahoo like they've done with other shows.
