    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.
  2. There's no shame in enjoying the entertainment provided by these game shows, which are a step above some of their TV competition, but if knowing all the answers in 1 vs 100 makes you feel smart, then you must be pretty stupid.

    If NBC must use game shows as spackle to fill holes in its schedule, it could do worse. It already has.

    "1 vs. 100" isn't really bad. Its only serious trouble is the pacing. In an hourlong episode, I count just 14 questions.
  5. This is not a terrible game.
  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.

    [It] basically plays like "Deal," inasmuch as the questions are so simple that amassing thousands isn't much harder than guessing which case to open.
  8. There is a lot that is ridiculous here.

    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. Full Review »

    Questions so easy even a monkey could answer them don't deserve a reward. Nor does this show deserve to stay on the air.
