Premise

Game shows are not quiz shows. That should be understood at the outset, because knowledge is not an American virtue; luck is. And so is virtue. Prime-time game shows like 1 vs 100, which begin tonight on NBC, are not tests of contestants ' erudition or nerve; they are aspirational reality shows that allow ordinary people to go for it all in hope of transforming their lives. Personality is obviously more important than education or skill. Contestants selected to play on 1 vs 100 are lively and likable in exactly the same way as those who compete on Deal or No Deal, NBC game show that precedes it. The New One, with Bob Saget as its host, requires slightly more acumen: there are multiple-choice questions. But the principle is the same: big rewards come with big risks. Producers seek out extroverts who do not desperately need money but who deserve a lucky break nonetheless, because their intentions are pure. Brian, first contestant in 1 vs 100, is a bouncer at a bar; hes jolly man who is quick to inform the audience that he wants to win money for his fiancee. Id really like to buy her the engagement ring she deserve, he say. On recent episode of Deal or No Deal, Mark, exuberant corrections officer, told host, Howie Mandel, that he wanted money because Ive never been able to buy my wife a nice ring. These game show, like American Idol, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition or Biggest Loser, tap into viewers ' own fantasies of self-realization, but cash is less romantic than a singing career, new house or slimmer, healthier body. While there is nothing more American than the dream of earning 1 million for one night's work, we have entirely lost our puritanical streak. Contestants have to be altruistically materialistic; they play to help or reward their loved one, not to acquire a sports car or spa vacation for themselves. Both NBC game shows and several similar ones coming up, like Set for Life on ABC or Rich List on Fox, follow the basic format of Who want to be Millionaire, game show that pioneered the formula of dispensing huge rewards for emotional exertion. On Deal or No Deal, Mr. Mandel does not even pretend that skill is involve. He says upfront that his game is about giving away tons of money, not winning a ton of money. In fact, Deal or No Deal eliminates the quiz element entirely. Contestants do not answer questions; they merely try to guess which one of 26 silver attache cases, carried by 26 scantily clad women, holds the most money. In gambling terms, it is not poker or even Wheel of Fortune. It is more like those fairground games in which children fish plastic duck out of water and hope the number beneath it translate into a teddy bear, not a whistle.
