The show was an interactive mystery series where the audience could play along, collect clues, and attempt to win the missing money. Players could also find clues at different internet websites seen on the show. Originally scheduled to air 13 episodes, ABC Television cancelled the show after seven episodes. The final clue of the series was broadcast during the pre-game show during Monday Night Football on 28 October 2002. See more »
No one could ever be deluded into thinking that `Push, Nevada' was going to be a mass-market success. To appreciate the series, a potential viewer has to watch every second of every episode; an easily bored viewer wouldn't have had the patience to do this. I suppose ABC's gimmick of embedded clues leading to a $1 million prize was an attempt to garner additional viewer patience, but obviously it didn't work. In contrast, Fox's functionally similar `24' has been able to consistently engage the average viewer to watch every episode, but only by making the conspiracy utterly simplistic and the thrills quick, cheap, and gratuitous. What made `Push, Nevada' great also made it a commercial failure. Only those who enjoyed sifting through the show's clever and quirky minutiae appreciated how truly great the series was.
