Attention game show fans, get ready for another revised version of an old time favorite! Tonight GSN will premiere a “new version” of originally NBC’s “1 vs 100″ at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. The show will air Mondays through Fridays at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Carrie Ann Inaba (“Dancing with the Stars” judge) replaces Bob Saget as the host. This will be Inaba’s first official “game show” as a host, although “Dancing with the Stars” is practically a game show with dancing.
How the game, which is seen in 38 countries, is traditionally played according to “wikipedia” is the following: After having the opportunity to select a difficulty level or a category in some versions, a multiple-choice question with three options is revealed (on some versions, such as the U.S. and Australia, the player is given only the question, with no opportunity to select a difficulty and a category). The Mob is given a short amount of time (15 seconds on the US show) to lock in their answer before The One (contestant) is given the opportunity to answer the question.
In the 2006 version of “1 VS 100″, The One played for the top prize of $1 million. In the new version, players can win a maximum prize of $50,000.
Another change, this one rumored, is that The Mob is present on stage via video monitors. Watchers of tonight’s premiere episode will get to see if they like the updated changes GSN has made to the show.
