Trivia

After Season 11, Meredith Vieira resigned from the show so she can move on to do other things with her career. As of Season 12, Cedric the Entertainer took Meredith's place as the host. 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?
