Oh my Gosh.

William Shatner, whome I love on BL and as the Kirkmeister and the Hooker is NOT a game show host and this show is so campy and cheesy.

Whoo-boy. Which Dancer do you want?

Not the Shatmaster dancing....

Yikes

Ok, this was probably the biggest trainwreck ever on television, and I was glued to the screen. If I hadn't hated the contestants so much, I would felt sorry for them. Shatner gave out dagger eyes to them like he was giving out Priceline commercials. There were pauses that were so awkward and uncomfortable that Larry David cringed. The questions were HORRIBLY simple and took ten minutes per AAAAAANNNDDD you only had to know one of the three fourth-grade-reading-material questions.

Also, if you're going to go for the seventy-ish gogo dancing, bring it all the way back with lava lamps, bell bottoms, and afros. A retro game show can't seem to be far off at this point anyway.

I made it to the first commercial break and then found some college hoops.

The questions were easy and the first contestant with his "murse" need a punch in the eye."

Well, "biggest trainwreck ever" is going overboard, but this was not good. Basically, it's painfully obvious that someone said "Hey, let's do 'Deal Or No Deal' meets 'Millionaire'! It can't miss!" rather than actually having an original idea, and no one bothered to figure out a way to make it work. Way too complicated, and WAAAAAAAYYY too long to get to the next question. "You've hit the KILLER CARD! That means you LOSE! Well, unless you already got this answer right--then it actually doesn't mean anything. Oh, you didn't? Um...well, here's one more question, and if you get it right, you stay in." Yeesh.

I'd much rather watch Cash Cab, with small money, no pointless dancers, and lots of questions.
