Bob Saget sticking around at NBC

1 vs 100 logoNBC thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new game show, 1 Vs. 100, which is hosted by comedian Bob Saget. As Joel explained before last week's series premiere, the show requires very little skill. Contestants face 100 other people in a pop culture quiz. The idea is to knock off as many members of the 'mob' by answering questions correctly ('mobsters' have to answer a question incorrectly to be booted). The dollar amount goes up as the contestant gets questions right and each 'mobster' is ejected from the game. Eliminating the entire 'mob' wins the contestant $1 million.

NBC has ordered 10 more episodes of 1 Vs. 100, which brings the total to 15 so far this season. When it debuted last week, the game show had 12.6 million viewers, which is not too shabby for flailing NBC. For the curious, the next episode airs on Friday at 9 pm, which pushes the season premiere for Las Vegas back one week.

Bob Saget is one person I'd love to see beaten to a bloody pulp. I never liked the guy on Full House or AFV. I know he's nothing like the super-sacrine teeth rot enducing Danny Tanner, but I hated that character and everything associated with him.

I won't even watch ..Mother because of his voice over.

I don't think it's that bad. The whole question process has a feel that's similar to "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" feel to it with the questions seeming to get more difficult as the value of each eliminated mobster goes up. It's "The Mob" that sets the game apart. The amount of money a contestant wins is directly proportional to how much smarter the player is than a group of people. As for Saget, well I get the point - he can't do his club routine which is supposed to be pretty raunchy - but if people can stand Howie Mandel as a game show host (I find Mandel about as entertaining as fingernails on a blackboard - you should have seen his "Boston Pizza" commercials here in Canada) they should be able to accept Saget.

I've never seen this show yet but it doesn't sound all that terrific.

Bob Saget as host?

I never liked this guy when I used to watch him on the funniest video's program,his jokes were terrible!

I may give this show a look though just out of curiosity.
