What is it like to be a TV game show contestant?
In Game Shows
- Im sure its nerveracking. You enter a whole different world then your used to. Being on the other side of the TV(camera) can be intimidating. They have people that tell you what to say and what not to say, dress you up and change the way you look. Things are edited so you may or may not say something stupid, that is unless they want us to hear or see that. Im sure its fun at some point to win all the money and prizes.
- I think it depends on the show, if you enter as a single person or it is a team game. Some shows like 'Deal or No Deal' seem to have a excellent Team Spirit as they stay with each other for quite a few days and all seem very relaxed. An old show like the BBC's It's A Knockout just looks great fun and they win no money !!

They tend to oversimplify complex topics- and use often confusing clues. Jeopardy for example. they have elements of gambling, which is morally wrong. some like the long defunct Name That Tune have elements of borderline vandalism - i was thinking of the tree- stripping skit, sickening. O for the ol…d timers like To Tell The Truth. (MORE)
The economy wasn't that good so not everyone got cable. And the color is black and white. But the scriptwriters are very good so when they write comedy, it is really comedy.
It depends on the show. For instance, on Millionaire, if you answer any of the one first five questions incorrectly, the "TOTAL PRIZE MONEY" banner reads $0, but you will really get some kind of consolation prize. On Wheel of Fortune and JEOPARDY, the minimum consolation prize for third place is $1,…000. It all depends on the game show itself. (MORE)
EVERYONE LOVES FRIENDS THE TV SHOW!!!!!!!!!! its the best ever its hilarious JOEY! ross rachel monica pheobe and chandler rock the hizouse!
Several celebrities appeared on "The Dating Game," but the best known sex symbol, especially to have not been picked, was Tom Selleck. Among the others to appear were John Ritter, Andy Kaufman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The first game show on television was the Truth or Consequences special that aired on July 1, 1941
All new episodes show every Saturday at 8PM but on August 30 I think Its the last one cause theres only 5 weeks and 4 have passed which means the 30th is the last one.
No. TV shows are highly dramatized to make them more interesting for the viewers. However, many of the cases that they have on NCIS may be based on real cases that have happened in the past with extra bits added. Yes, it is dramatized, but the TV show NCIS and the actual NCIS work very close togethe…r to ensure things stay true to the real NCIS. They even have what boils down to a liaison between the two (a former NCIS special agent) and the real NCIS shares cases with the tv show all the time. Real NCIS agents would never act so informally toward their fellow agents. Most of the agents are probably Naval Officers and would not go around "head slapping" other agents. Actually, most agents are NOT Naval Officers as active duty Naval Officers are not a part of NCIS. NCIS agents are civilians. Some are former Navy or Marine Corps (or other branches), but some have no military experience at all. Also, in the program, some stories seem to be about crimes that are beyond the Jurisdiction of the Navy. Actually the show stays pretty close to home when it comes to jurisdiction. NCIS investigates murder, rape, child abuse, fraud, terrorism, and many other crimes ALL OVER THE WORLD. Their jurisdiction is very wide spread and any and everything that involves a member of the Navy or Marine Corps can fall under their scope. This is just an add-on that is not from the original writer. Actually the actual NCIS help the actors walk, talk, and move like real agents. They also discuss different crimes so that the show seems more realistic. I'm not certain who answered the first time, or what affiliation they many have with NCIS. However, as a retired Special Agent of NCIS, I can tell you that the second answer in italics is much more accurate. The Army and Air Force use military personnel, but NCIS uses civilians. That way, high ranking officers cannot refuse to cooperate. Further, civilians stay in that role for longer lengths of time, and become more professional. There are only two things about the show that are not accurate, for the same reason that FBI stories and police stories are not accurate. All of them work multiple cases at the same time, and cannot focus on only one case. Also, Special Agents in Washington, D.C. do not interview people with white t-shirts showing (like Gibbs), but dress more professionally, and they don't head-slap. But the array of cases worked is accurate. (MORE)
The first television broadcasts were experimental, low resolution (30 line). The first "real" programme broadcast in 405 line resolution was by the BBC in 1936; broadcasting to around 100 viewers in the London area. It was a variety show starting with a song ("Here's looking at you"), which became t…he name of the programme. (MORE)
No, contestants will never be given material to study directly from a game show. It's up to the contestant to study material that they think will be important.
a game show contestent usually enters they can win a certain amount of money like when who wants to be a millionaire was on t.v (or still is i don't watch much t.v but im pretty sure it got taken off) you could win up to 1 million dollars so t sort of depends if yopu tell me what game show you are t…hinking about i can tell you how much they make (MORE)
Part of the money comes from selling tickets to the live audience. The majority comes from advertisers. Shows with non-cash prizes receive sponsorship/gifts from companies who want publicity for their products. .
There has been many TV game show hosts over the years. A few of themost popular are Steve Harvey, Pat Sajak, and Alex Trebek.
Even though the show is intended for the 13-16 year range, it's enjoyed by many, many people of all ages. The humor, and the fact that they don't 'talk down' to kids are some of the things that make it appealing to lots of people. Dan Schneider, the creator of iCarly, always intended it to be a 'f…amily' show: appealing to all ages. Currently, it's one of the highest rated shows on all of TV, bringing in tons of viewers for premieres. Check it out! It's much better than it may sound, and you won't be disappointed! :) (MORE)
I'm pretty sure it is neither. I think that it is a movie. Fantasia is anyway.
Hello, The X games is an event organized by ESPN. It concentrates on extreme sports like skiing, surfing, skating etc. It is not a TV show, although it is transmitted by television so you can watch them worldwide.

Survivors can read and learn about the area in which they will be living before heading out to film the show. It hasn't been declared as to whether or not the show tells them about the dangers before they are out in the elements. However, the contestants are constantly being cared for and watched ov…er by the crew. It isn't exactly how the show makes it seems when it is aired to the audiences. (MORE)
Yes unfortunately the CW has cancelled the game. It was one of the best shows on the network and they made a horrible decision to end with a third season. It is a rumor for now that BET will try to pick it up and not only run reruns but try to negotiate a new contact for a new fourth season.
First you must decide just what is a TV game show, then how broad of TV viewers do you use to make a count of shows for example worldwide, broadcast, cable, closed circuit. Are sporting events also game shows and where is the line drawn because some game shows are also sporting events. Then how many… times do you count Wheel of Fortune, it is clearly a different show when they have a different Host and hostess and speak a different language. Do you count pilots that aired to only a limited viewing audience. There have been thousands of different shows over the years and the number would be out of date soon after it was determined, if not while someone was trying to accurately calculate your answer. I'm not sure a person could accurately decide how many a network had in the current lineup without someone claiming a show is or isn't a game show. Then since different people are on shows with the same title a point could be made that each episode is really a different game show. Or at least each season in some reality based game shows. (MORE)
YES! The Game will be returning for an all new Season. BET has picked up The Game for Season 4.
because they're the same people that think Modern Family is a great comedy tv show; they don't know real/good comedy, or any good television for that matter.
Jeopardy needs 400 new contestants per year. The original Jeopardy show hosted by Art Fleming came on the air from March 30 1964 until January 3 1975. A new syndicated Jeopardy Hosted by Alex Trebek has aired continuously since September 10 1984. That would mean under 15,000 contestants for USA Jeop…ardy with over 10,00 of them from the Alex Trebek Jeopardy episodes. This estimate does not even include the large number of international contestants from the International Jeopardy shows. (MORE)
Yes, its very funny.. I don't really like it. But I've never really liked them anyway so... I guess the show is sort of funny, I did laugh, but not because it was funny, because it was stupid.. yeah i think its funny
There has not been any clue on which TV shows Jon and Kate like but the kids love cartoons and the usual kid shows.
does anyone know shows like the saddle club ? Horseland is a good horse show and it's kind of like The Saddle Club. It's a cartoon but when I watched it it reminded me of The Saddle Club.
The question is a smidge vague but, Cleveland , American Dad , South Park , Drawn Together , Trippin' the Rift , maybe a little Simpsons have similar humor.
This is a biased question. But thanks for asking. I don't like Kingof the Hill or Honey Boo Boo.
Same as they are now $1000 for 3rd and $2000 for second. Prior to May 16, 2002, the second-place contestant typically received a vacation package or merchandise and the third-place contestant received lesser-value merchandise. see related link
It varies depending how long they last on the show. The longer they last the more they get paid. They also get paid for doing publicity, charity, tv shows, etc after the show.
no record of him as a contestant or any contestant except Tyrone Bogues, check your spelling. The Kirk's were Kirk Crumbley, Kirk Jordan, & Kirk Dizler in the 1992 Tournament of champions
The concept wasn't bad, but it was way too watered down for primetime. Also the vehicle flipping on the ramp was like in every episode.
you have to have married parents and at least two siblings also you have to do this weird stuff. This statement is not true. I am watching the show right now and I see two parents and two kids not three or more. the show before this had one parent and one child. This question still needs to… be answered. (MORE)
Before his appearance on the popular TV show The Dating Game in 1978, serial killer Rodney Alcala had already been convicted of the rape of an eight year old girl and had committed the murders of four women. He went on to be convicted of the murder of a 13 year old girl.
Game of Thrones has premiered in early April each season. It islikely that HBO will stick to this schedule.
Yes she is but I hope the producers of the game add it to the script for they next season of the game
No. The categories are selected at random from a specific set, and there is a period of time between the uses of any single category. Rarely, a category will be one in which none of the three has any expertise, and all will flounder.
Go to the game show's website and find "auditions" it should tell you how to
I cant think of any, but they are comming out with The Hunger Games movie on March 23, 2012

Seasons 3 and 4 of Game of Thrones are based off of "A Storm ofSwords," book 3 in the "Song of Ice and Fire" series.
Broadly some would be similar. There are soaps, current affairs,sports, chat shows, educational shows, drama, music etc. The stylewould be a bit different. As Ireland is smaller, there would be farless channels. A lot of American shows are shown on Irish tv too.
