  • RUMOR CONTROL: "Show Me What You Got" Possibly Canned from FOX
    Tuesday, August 22, 2006
    Extreme rumor control here. We're getting reports from some close Endemol, FOX, and direct show sources that FOX may have already given the ax to their answer to "Deal or No Deal" called "Show Me What You Got." In this show, people have to answer trivia questions correctly, hoping to multiply their money possibly into the millions, or lose millions with a wrong answer. This would make me upset, since the rules for "Show Me What You Got" are incredible compared to the "Powerball: Instant Millionaire" game gone awry that is "Set For Life". However, we are waiting on a statement, as we called the show last night. Stay tuned to hear what happens.

    MAJOR DEVELOPMENT: We're checking if this was just a typo or not, but a new Craigslist posting, found in our contestant call area, states that ABC has picked up "Show Me What You Got" and has a top prize of $5,000,000. So as of now, we don't know if they mean FOX or ABC, or "Show Me What You Got" or "Set For Life". We're checking as soon as we can. However, if ABC does pick this up, that means they will have three game shows coming soon, with the former two and "PokerFace"/"The Con Test". What was that one called? Oh, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" and "Super Millionaire"! My mistake!

      Dude, you need to get over your Millionaire withdrawal.

      My thoughts exactly. Besides, haven't we had enough bashing of ABC for not re-uping that show anyway?

      If all of this is true, somebody at FOX has a lot of explaining to do. I was eagerly awaiting this show ever since it was first announced.

      It's not really a Millionaire withdrawal as much as confusion. The reason I keep stressing it is that I cannot think of one good reason why ABC would not renew the show and just put it anywhere to keep the rights. Especially with the giant success of DoND. If Set For Life is a big hit, I will gladly shut my mouth and take back what I said. Until then, I'm still going to make fun of ABC for making one of the biggest mistakes I've ever seen in TV history. If you can present me with one good reason why it wasn't renewed, I'll stop. I stress the "good" part.

      The reason why Super Millionaire never came back was because of low ratings. I don't mean the ratings of Super Millionaire, I mean the low ratings of the ABC shows that were around in the 2003/04 season. Once Desperate Housewives and Lost premiered, ABC got its audience back with those two shows. As well as Grey's Anatomy mid season.

      That is why ABC decided not to bring back Super Millionaire, because they already got its audience with those other three shows.

      That is what I remember reading when I kept looking for SM info.

      I agree with Alex here. Some of these other shows look good, but Super Millionaire was a big hit and already is a recognized hit. I agree that in 2004-2005 it made sense for a break since ABC had a lot of hits premiering (Desperate Housewives, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Boston Legal), but look at last season: I think only one of the new shows was renewed for a second season, and just about every summer show this year did poorly (The One, How to Get the Guy, One Ocean View). The network would have been better off if they had gone with Super Millionaire this summer; if they need a new show during the season, hopefully they'll go with the proven hit.

      Yes, they have their three big shows, but Desperate Housewives is lowering off the radar. Now they have two big shows, and that is it. Nothing else is coming on the radar. Here's my thing. They were the pioneer of the game show craze, and they saw that no clone of Millionaire did well at all. Do they actually think that a clone of DoND is going to do well. The only show that will even come close to being semi-popular is "PokerFace". If ABC had more than two really popular shows, I would agree with you. However, with Desperate Housewives tapering off, two big shows aren't cutting it.

      Ok. Let's see if my next comment shows up 3 times again... LOL

      Very good point there Alex. I was obsessed with Housewives the first season, but I got tired of it during the middle of the second. There was one chracter I wanted to kick in the BLANK. I couldn't stand it no more.

      Anyway, yeah the only Millionaire clone that was a hit was Greed and Weakest Link. And it looks like 1 vs. 100 will be the equivalent of Link to DoND.

      personally I think when they drop millionare from 4 nights to two is when millionare died because some people I talked to had no idea when it was on. think about it it was on Monday and Thursday night and at that time I believe that was the weakest nights for ABC. Im hoping that people will watch Deal Or No Deal or CSI and stop watching Grey's Anatomy because Im just not all that impressed with that show. I can't wait to see PokerFace/ConTest which I wanna try out for and 1 VS 100 I feel will be very exciting to watch.
