Trivia

At the beginning of season 9, the entire studio had a makeover. The hot seat was retired and replaced with a podium in the center where the host and the contestant would stand during the show. A big LCD screen hanging in the studio displays the question and the answers. In season 10, the podium was replaced with a clear tall table and the staircases had colored lights added. See more »

Crazy Credits

The show originally aired on ABC. When an episode ended on there, Regis would typically make a remark about what show was going to be on there next (for example, Dharma and Greg) right before the credits ended. Strangely, these are NOT edited out in Game Show Network airings! See more »

Boring...
1 July 2006 | by (Seattle, WA, USA) – See all my reviews

The first five questions (up to $1000) are ridiculously easy. They are a formality; hardly any contestant ever misses these. A waste of everyone's time.

The next five questions are somewhat more challenging, though still too easy for my taste. Earning $25000 is something of an achievement on any other show, but contestants of average ability do it regularly here.

The $50000 question is usually pretty good -- about as hard as a Jeopady! Daily Double.

Beyond that level, the questions suddenly get preposterously hard, to the point that virtually no contestant ever risks answering them.

I mean, what is the point?
