An immensely successful TV gameshow that has become successful because of how nasty it is.With the sly,condescending host Anne Robinson ,contestants are randomly voted off for losing the team money and for not being bright enough.What gets me more than anything is who is Robinson to speak down to the statistical/actual 'weakest link',she is a mere host herself and certainly no nuclear psyician,in what position is she to make other people feel stupid and insignificant?Why doesn't SHE take the hotspot for once?If not having to face the possible (there can only be one winner) humiliation of being voted off isn't enough to deter you,imagine the frustration of another contestant being asked a question to which you know the answer but they don't,and vice versa.There are many other game shows you can go on with the possibility of winning large sums of money other than this,such as Millionaire and My Kind of Music ,where you are consoled for being the loser,apply to go on them instead.**
