Just on the face of it, I dislike quiz shows where the questions aren't really knowledge questions, and the answers are just opinions. Unable to answer a single question on a show like "Jeopardy", rather than pick up a book and learn something, people are invited to answer questions that don't actually require any education. Very popular in a bone-deep anti-intellectual society. If you doubt that, just look at the other reviews.
And what's with the hosts? Richard Dawson's signature was that he assaulted the guests. That's what unwanted touching is. Assault. Are we supposed to believe that all those guests were quite happy with his constantly pawing them? So, every host since then has to do the same thing.
Stupid. Really stupid.
