Don't was a short-lived comedic physical game show that offered contestants the opportunity to team up with their family and friends for the chance to win a cash prize of up to $100,000 by tackling hilarious tasks, each with the simple rule: Don't.


In each one-hour episode, members of a four-person team strive to accomplish various challenges such as "Don't Blink", "Don't Look Back" and "Don't Play Ball in the House" as they work together to build their bank. If they fail a challenge, they don't earn the money and suffer ridiculous consequences. Along the way, they have the choice to take risks by pushing the Don't Push Button or taking a chance on a Don't You Dare, You. In the end, whatever money they have left in their bank -- if anything -- is theirs to keep.
