Game show in which a group of globe-trotting contestants builds up the winner's cash prize by solving puzzles and completing tasks. One of them is a saboteur. Each week, the person least close to figuring out who that is, gets dismissed.

Murder in Small Town X is an unscripted drama series in which ten ordinary people compete to track down a fictional killer in a town filled with improvisational actors playing the suspects and witnesses.
9 contestants, 1 mole, 3 weeks and over $100,000 to be won! The nine contestants are given a number of challenges to complete, each worth a certain amount of money. They must follow the guidelines and finish the challenge in order to win. However, the tenth contestant, the mole, must sabotage as many of the challengers as possible though he must appear like one of the others to avoid suspicion. Because at the end of the day the contestants must do a 20 question questionnaire about who they think the mole is. Who ever knows least about the mole gets eliminated and goes home, with nothing. At the end of the series only 1 person will win what is in the kitty.Written by
In 2005, any part of the $500,000 prize money that was lost by the contestants went into a separate prize kitty. If neither of the other final contestants knew the Mole's identity, the Mole would win this money. See more »
Yet another reality show that tries to capitalize on the CBS giant "Survivor". ABC's "The Mole" is a would-be high-tech James Bond-styled program that puts a group of morons together. What the group tries to figure out is which of their contemporaries is really a sabotage artist who is hired by the producers. The last civilian standing is of course the winner. Amazingly, "The Mole" had a minimum bit of success in the early 2000s in the ratings game. Of course critically it has always been a disgusting rodent. Celebrity editions and innovative scheduling kept the idea running longer than experts expected. Mercifully, "The Mole" was put to sleep in 2004 by the network. Let us hope there is no resurrection. 2 stars out of 5.
