I swore I wasn't going to watch this show when it first came on. My wife insisted that we tale a look. First, I thought, "gooofy" - Howie mandel, cell phone, all those cases! Actually, this show has all the elements (if not more!) than WWTBA Millionair.e. I rather like the show and the fact it brings out an individual's greed and lunacy. A real picture of America today.


Anyone else like this show?

First one was interesting. But got boring real quick after that. It would help if the contestants understood the simplest concepts of probability.

True, the most basic of math skills seem to have eluded all of the contestants and all but one of the people they brought with them. I'm actually amazed that Howie is a pretty good host, though he looks just too weird with a shaved head. Now if they could just get those models in bikinis...or less. ;)

Howie Mandel is quite the host. The game show is entertaining for me, however, and it's fun to have running the background while working from home in the evenings.


I think it would be a great example for junior high/high school math class to calculate the running odds of winning, plus estimate the banker's bid for the case.


If people cared about statistics, casinos and the lottery wouldn't exist :) It's just entertainment...

I read in yesterday's paper that this show has been picked up and will return!


Kinda goofy show, but entertaining also.

Anyone else been watching? It's pretty darn exicting (except for last nights show with "Monty". He lost big-time.)

I laughed when my wife suggested I check this show out back in December.....then I decided to at least give it a chance last week and now I'm hooked! :eek:


It's such a simple concept (well, not to some of the contestants, obviously!) yet I find it very entertaining. I think Howie's doing a fine job, and the models, well, they're fine too. :D


Now that they've wet our appetites the show will only air one night a week starting 3/20.....a good move I think.


I give it 4 stars! :)

Anybody got a quicktime capture of the dude who "lucky danced" last night? (That was the high point of last night's episode.) Heck, I'd almost pay to see that one again :)
