“The Million Second Quiz” is the latest game show attempt by NBC. It’s interesting, yes, but a little confusing at first. However, it’s not whether or not a game show is necessarily perplexing that’s an issue, but it’s the standing power and intoxicating allure to the fans, players and host alike once the game is understood that is the paramount determinant to its ultimate success.
Just in case NBC needs one more game show to put on the air (or back on the air) that would be fun for the entire family, I suggest they step back into their vault of past hits. Start with the folder of sitcoms labeled “F” and then search “B” for a specific game show reference…
“This is the best game ever!!”
