Eric Clapton Question
8 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

My favorite moment on this show was when Ken Ober asked the question, "Name 3 bands that Eric Clapton played with." No one answered, so he changed it to two bands. No one still could answer, so he changed it to one. When no one answered that, he hit the eject button, and kicked all the contestants off the show, and brought in 3 more contestants. To me, that was game show history! I loved it! This was a game show that had to be the most underrated game show in television history. If this game would have been on a prime time network, it would still be on today. I wish that one of the networks would try it out again. I mean, they put on "My Dad is better than Your Dad" for goodness sake!
