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 »

One of the best game shows, ever
4 December 2003 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

I so totally enjoyed this awesome show, with fun trivia questions, food dropping from the ceiling, contestants sitting in reclining easy chairs using remote controls to buzz in, skits disguised as questions, and comedians like Adam Sandler(DE STUD BOY!) and Denis Leary. Ken Ober was a great host, and Colin Quinn was the best co-host. One season, they stepped up the grand prize round when they had the winner strapped on a spinning wheel to guess the musical performer from the video. Ranks up there with the Price is Right in great game show history. MTV hadn't done anything as fun since.
