Let's try this: If you were going to CREATE a TV Game Show, serious or silly, what would be the premise of it?

Asked by JackAdams (6492points) September 1st, 2008

Try to come up with something that has never been done before, and let’s see just how much creativity exists within “The Collective.”

I think it may have been the late/great George Carlin who suggested a game show, where if you lose, the show takes away your house, or your kids. The guy was delightfully insane. R.I.P., George

Well, here are a few kind of sick ideas…

So You Think You Can Make A Baptist Dance? (The title almost speaks for itself, but the premise would be to see exactly how persuasive contestants could be.)

Hitchhikers (A cross between a “reality” show and candid camera, whereby a hitchhiker who is really a highly trained actor hitches a ride with an unsuspecting driver and then pulls a shiv – or other nasty street weapon – out of his sleeve and waves it about, terrifying the driver and nearly causing an accident. Once the driver realizes he’s been “had”, everybody will have a good laugh.)

Those are interesting ideas, indeed.

They must be very proud of you, at the Asylum.

McBean: you know why Baptists don’t have sex standing up? It could lead to dancing!

@JackAdams: Why, yes, they are very proud of me. That’s probably why they’re so reluctant to let me go.

@stratman37: You know…

That was a love sigh, right?

Yep. No other kind could you evoke from me…

How about a game show called, CELEBRITY STRIP POKER?

As long as the women always lost, it would be a show I would regularly watch…
