Captain Kirk to boldly host a game show

William ShatnerWilliam Shatner is becoming the next Regis Philbin. He's everywhere!

Besides appearing on Boston Legal, many different commercials (Priceline, DirecTV, ads for attorneys) and writing books and having a web site, he's just signed to host a new game show for ABC titled Show Me The Money. The game will involve contestants answering trivia questions for a prize of $1 million.

Sigh. Hey, I like game shows, but I fear the success of Deal Or No Deal will push out scripted shows (or, on the flip side, good game shows will be so popular the networks will run them into the ground by having them on 2, 3, 4 times a week). And if they are going to have a game show, why use an already cliche line from some movie from the 90s?

Little note: Show Me the Money is for $5,000,000 supposedly.

Also, the only show that will survive is 1 vs. 100, and it deserves to. It is the next generation of Millionaire. I am hoping that The Rich List debuts too. These are the only two shows with a ton of originality. Set For Life is a TOTAL ripoff of DoND.

It is funny to think that the famous Captian Kirk will host a game show. Star Trek actors have a hard time finding good gigs. In fact there is a post on my blog about how Star Trek is going downhill.

Hopefully, if this game show's good and gets ratings, ABC will learn from their "Millionaire" mistake and doesn't populate it more than once a week into the program schedule...
