    I am. How sad is it that a guy who says he got 2 college scholarships works as a telemarketer?

    That's what I was thinking....or the cab driver that studied to be an accountant. This is a pretty interesting game show concept.

    There are too many people with college degrees and not enough jobs. I think experience is more appealing to employers now, too. Very sad. I am in the same boat and so are so many people I know. My husband works in law enforcement. It is an awesome profession, but you do not need more than high school. He currently works with a woman who has some kind of engineering doctorate. She lost her job due to a mass layoff. This was the highest paying one she could find-she has massive school loan debt and this was probably a 40-50% cut in pay for her.

    I like the show. I have only known a handful of questions, though. I would get so nervous if they pressed that button and I only had 7 seconds.:eek:

    I meant to watch it... are they doing a weeklong thing, or is it going to be a weekly show?

    I'm not sure if it will become a weekly show or not. It's hard to explain, but watching it for awhile you start to figure it out. It's on again tonight at 8/7c

    My friend Monica was a contestant on Monday's episode. I didn't watch, though!

    If you go to the abc.com website, they have a place where you can play along. I haven't tried it yet.
