    Yes, "1 vs 100" is fun, but in reality, it's just a new take on an old, old game.

    I found 1 vs. 100 much more enjoyable [than Deal Or No Deal]. [23 Oct 2006, p.37]

    It’s by no means must-see TV, but this is one game show you don’t have to be ashamed of getting sucked in to.
  4. This is not a terrible game.

    "1 vs. 100" isn't really bad. Its only serious trouble is the pacing. In an hourlong episode, I count just 14 questions.
  6. Prime-time game shows like “1 vs 100,” which begins tonight on NBC, are not a test of a contestant’s erudition or nerve; they are aspirational reality shows that allow ordinary Joes to go for it all in the hope of transforming their lives.

    The only problem with 1 vs. 100 is its determined idiocy.

    I love the show... except for Bob Saget. For a guy who can't make funny home videos seem funny, this guy can't make a show very I love the show... except for Bob Saget. For a guy who can't make funny home videos seem funny, this guy can't make a show very exciting. Bring in Bob Barker or someone who has TRUE enthusiasm- not Saget's yelling "YOU COULD WIN A MILLION DOLLARS!" There's yelling an exciting fact and then there's genuine enthusiasm. Expand

    IS this game jeopardy? No, the questions are not very difficult, nor does it hold ones interest between commercials. However, it is exciting IS this game jeopardy?
