"Across America, everybody's talking about what is worth. Welcome to the show that puts money in your pocket, if you can answer that very question. No other show on television brings over 50 million dollars of extraordinary items into your living room each night. Real people, Big Money, with Cedric the Entertainer. The game is simple, all you have to know is..." Cedric: "IT'S... WORTH... WHAT?"
Cedric: "Our warehouse is filled with treasures worth over 50 million dollars. Tonight, you'll see an endless amount of unique valuables from a prehistoric skeleton, to one of the world's most expensive cars, to shoes worn by Oprah Winfrey. Everything here will have our contestants and all of America asking one question, which is... It's Worth What?."
It's Worth What? was a short-lived prietime game show in which a team determines the prices of expensive antiques and luxury items, with a top prize of $1,000,000.
The team plays different rounds, each involving the prices of luxury items & antiques. A successful round places money in their bank:
Round 7: $30,000
Round 6: $20,000
Round 5: $20,000
Round 4: $10,000
Round 3: $10,000
Round 2: $5,000
Round 1: $5,000
Round 6: $30,000
Round 5: $30,000
Round 4: $15,000
Round 3: $15,000
Round 2: $5,000
Round 1: $5,000
Unlike most game shows offering big money, a wrong answer doesn't end the game.

Final Round (It's Worth More)Edit
In the final round, the team can win up to ten times their current winnings. Eight items are displayed, and the team must select the four most expensive items. The team can arrange them in any order, but once an order is decided, it cannot be changed. The items are grouped into four pairings, and if the selected item is worth more than the other item in that group, the team stays alive. The next two pairings double the current earnings, and being correct on all four pairings earns the team ten times their winnings, up to $1,000,000. They can stop and keep the money, because an incorrect guess leaves them with a quarter of their current earnings (25%) and the game is over.
