Revamped version of the classic game show, which mixed in elements of "Candid Camera" and "People are Funny" with the familiar high-low card game based on the rules of Acey-Deucy. Four contestants, two at a time, competed in two separate best-of-three High-Low challenges. In the High-Low challenge, the contestant chosen to go first was shown the base card (in a block of seven) and had to guess whether the next card was higher or lower than the one just shown. An incorrect guess passed control of the block to his/her opponent. At any time, the contestant in control of the cards could use a "Clip Chip" to change the card currently in play. However, to change the card, he/she had to correctly guess the outcome of a "Video Dilemma;" these hidden-camera vignettes depicted moral situations (e.g., a pretty woman asking a passerby whether she should leave a note on the windshield of a car she just dented), behavioral questions (e.g., whether a college football quarterback would choose a sexy ...

It had it's hopes, but couldn't keep up with it's predecessors

I think this version of Card Sharks is just like the Match Game '98 where most of the stuff was not just revamped, but the Clip Chip strategy was just killing the show just like that. I wish they kept the show on longer if they kept the High-Low toss up question which I just feel was more exciting and interesting because the Clip Chip was just making the shows tempo go really fast and the contestants just weren't given enough chances. But I think what would be better from the show to go on a little bit more is if they brought Frank from Street Smarts and use him as a decoy for someone "caught by surprise" and ask them a simple gesture then the show would be much more interesting. The lighter side of this is they dedicated a full week of Card Sharks to America's Heroes how charities are helping those whose lives were lost on Sept. 11th. If I were a TV critic and rated this version of Card Sharks '01 I would give it a 6 out of 10 stars. It's interesting, but the clip chips just threw the series away. You can do better next time Pearson TV/Tribune Entertainment!
