TV show description:
A game show in which ordinary contestants must answer trivia questions, competing against a “mob” of 100 people. The mob is typically made up of “regular people,” celebrities, and some of the best and brightest from a variety of professions. For every mob member that answers incorrectly, the lone contestant’s prize money grows. But, if the lone contestant answers incorrectly, the remaining mob members split the prize money.
Sarah Greene from Chicago, IL and Eric Smart from Los Angeles, CA try to outsmart the mob. Members of the mob in this episode include Richard Rubin (Beauty and the Geek), Sommore, Ross Mathews (The Tonight Show with Jay Leno), Jaclyn Dahm, Erica Dahm, and Nicole Dahm. Actress Nicole Eggert (Baywatch) posed a question via video.
First aired February 22, 2008.
There’s been no news of plans to revive the show.
