Two teams of two contestants, each of whom had been isolated in separate study chambers and kept awake for 24 hours, compete in this general knowledge quiz. During the study period, the contestants are given material to study for the show; they have 24 hours to absorb as much material as they can. Questions posed by host Elwood came from the material, which ranged from news magazines and manuals for menial tasks to joke books and medical encyclopedias. The contestants attempt to answer the questions while engaged in a variety of physical stunts, all in an attempt to drain energy and concentration from the contestants. The team leading after a series of rounds moves on to the bonus round, where they could win $10,000. Written by Brian Rathjen <>

Terribly boring!
28 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

One gets tired just watching this boring show. There's really not much in it for the viewer. One really can't judge how good he/she is at trivia because most of the questions are just useless facts, as well as trying to remember dumb one-line jokes. Graham Eliot is annoying as an MC. One of the best things about a game show is its MC. Which is exactly why someone like Chuck Woolery is successful in almost every game show he hosts. Chuck Woolery has the charm and charisma to pull off almost any game show, regardless of the content.

One more thing, just how did this game show get renewed for a 2nd season? UGH!! Perhaps GSN needed some filler for their schedule? Who knows? What I do know is that I would recommend fans of game shows to simply pass over this useless 30 minutes.
