100% was a short-lived syndicated game show where three contestants answer a series of 100 general knowledge questions by pushing buttons corresponding to the answers.
Format[edit | edit source]
The twist was that throughout the game, the scores were mentioned every 10 questions, but not who had which score, although the contestants were told if there was a change in the lead.
While most of the questions were multiple choice, with choices labeled A, B, and C, every fifth question was a true/false question, while Question 100 took the form of a ridiculous fact that was almost always true.
The winner received $10 per correct answer, with a $99,000 bonus if he/she managed a perfect score (for a total of $100,000); however, it was never won during the show's brief run.
