A fairly goofy game show.
25 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

At the time of this writing, this show is still going strong, which seems fair, its a game show that's not as dumb as others, and takes brains to win. Basically, contestants (called "Shoppers") build of their sweep time so they can get the most items during the big sweep. The one who has the most money gets to race through the market looking for $5000. Instead of having contestants do stupid stunts to get they time, they must instead answer questions about supermarket items, commercials, etc. A rather entertaining game show, not brainy like "Who Wants to be a Millionaire", but still smarter than most others.
