"This is the Easiest Game Show Ever! Here's your host, Michael Ian Black!"
Easiest Game Show Ever is a game show where it puts a new twist on the old "True or False" format and gives contestants a chance to win $100,000 in cash.
In each episode, a pair of contestants work together to answer twenty True or False pop culture facts. These statements test their instinct knowledge of entertainment, food, fashion and culture. (ex: True or False: Betty White is older than slice bread?; In the U.S., there are more McDonald's than Starbucks?; According to the Guinness Book or World Records, Madonna is the best-selling female artist of all time?) After the team's initial responses, Michael and his co-host Abbi Crutchfield spend the rest of the show revealing additional fun facts to the contestants, giving them the opportunity to doubt their initial responses and even change their answers!
So, here it is broken down, contestants have a 50/50 shot at answering each question correctly, then they get more information and are allowed to change their mind, then they only need to answer fifteen out of twenty true or false questions correctly in order to win a maximum prize of $100,000 cash.
The team has a total of 100 seconds to answer twenty true-or-false questions about pop culture. One member of the team answers the first ten questions, and the other member answers the last ten within the remaining time. After that, the team has 30 seconds to choose the five questions they think have answered correctly. Each chosen question answered correctly is worth 500 points, but if all five chosen questions are answered correctly, the total points are doubled to 5,000 points.
The team has 30 seconds to choose five more questions. This time, they have the option to change their answer on each chosen question. Each chosen question answered correctly is again worth 500 points, but if all five chosen questions are answered correctly, the total points scored in that set of questions are doubled to 5,000 points.
All the points scored by the team become the dollar value of each chosen question answered correctly. This time, there is no clock, and the team immediately has the option to change their answer after choosing a question. The team chooses five more questions. Each chosen question answered correctly earns the team their total points in cash, but each chosen question answered incorrectly reduces the team's cash total to 10%. If all five chosen questions are answered correctly, the team's cash total is doubled.
A team can score up to 10,000 points, meaning that each chosen question answered correctly in the final round is worth $10,000, and having all five chosen questions answered correctly in the final round wins the team $100,000.
