1 Vs. 100

I was kind of looking forward to checking out this new gameshow on NBC (looks like it'll be Fridays at 8 or 9-ish).  I talked about the basic premise earlier, so I won't bore you with the details again.

The show was decent - not something I'll really go out of my way to watch, but I'd be much more inclined to tune in to it rather than Deal or No Deal or Millionare. 1 vs. 100 has the same basic problems as other trivia shows - the early questions are too easy, they waste too much time dragging things out, etc.

I do like the dynamic of the contestant competing against the 'mob,' and there's a lot of potential for some interesting situations.  In Friday's episode, the first guy used his help options early on, but the mob getting questions wrong left and right, so by the time he opted to quit when the questions started getting hard he had quite a bit of money. The second contestant, however, had very little money as the questions got tough because the mob wasn't getting very many wrong.

Once the show settles into a more solid formula I think it'll be worth watching, which is more than I can say for most gameshows.
