Well, NBC tried another game show ... and even though it received the endorsement of host Howie Mandel the lack of a thread here makes me think I'm the only one who watched it. Or perhaps I'm the only one to admit it. Take It All is a game show with the following format: Round One Five contestants are introduced one at a time with backstage video clips. Each contestant chooses a "box" from the "dream screen". The second through fifth contestant can, instead of choosing an unopened box, try to take another contestant's prize. If the contestant with that prize does not want to give it up they can "lock" their prize and the current contestant can go for someone else's prize or a "dream screen" box. If a contestant's prize is taken they can take another contestant's price (not the one they just lost) or from the screen. If at the end of the round no one has taken the first contestant's prize they have the choice to try to take someone else's prize. At the end of the round the contestant with the lowest valued prize goes away with nothing. During the reveal Howie gets to torment the contestants as to who is going home. BTW: The prizes are represented by objects ... a sailor's cap for a boat, keys for a car, towels for a sauna, hot dogs for a hot dog cart. Round Two The four remaining contestants do the same as the first round, in order of the value of the prizes from the first round. At the end of the round the contestant with the lowest valued prize in that round goes home losing all prizes. Round Three Did you guess? More of the same to get down to the final two. Send a third contestant home with nothing. Final Round Each contestant has their three prizes and picks a case with an unknown cash amount in it that ranges from $25k to $250k. Then they have to choose: To they want to "Keep Mine" or (everyone in the crowd chant) "Take It All". If both contestants "Keep Mine" both get the prizes they won plus cash. If one contestant says "Take It All" the other contestant gets nothing and they get six prizes plus both cash amounts. If both contestants get greedy and "Take It All" the show ends with no winners. The whole thing is nuts ... overacted, people too happy about prizes they will likely lose. And the end game where they stand two people up against each other to try to convince each other to "Keep Mine" while lying about making the same choice gets annoying. Sometimes both keep their word and both get something but to "Take It All" it takes a liar who can convince the other to trust them. As a six night special this past week I hope it is done. I watched it via DVR ... zipping through most of the show just to see the outcome. I can't see wasting the time to watch it if it becomes regular.
