Trivia

The show is most remembered for the way they disposed of losing contestants. First of all, the contestants were all seated in recliners. If you lost, your chair would be pulled back through a trick wall or your chair would be lifted up and back. See more »

Too Bad, the Old MTV is gone too!
17 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Remote Control wasn't your average kind of game show. You have three contestants in recliner with a remote control. You have game show host, Ken Ober, and Colin Quinn as a announcer. I don't remember the prizes but that wasn't the purpose. This thirty minutes of game time was nothing more than entertainment rather than enlightenment. This show premiered on MTV back in the day where music videos were the majority of the network's programming. Remote Control was never about prizes but about the silly knowledge that you get by watching television. Ken Ober was a natural game show host if there ever was one. Hearing upon his passing, I felt compelled to write about how the game show was quite unconventional from other shows. Yes, there was prizes but it was more about having fun and a good time at it.
