Million Second Quiz Is A Money Losing Machine - No One Is Watching

By the time Million Second Quiz ends its run next week it is up for debate whether anyone will actually be watching. I suppose there will be some family members of the finalists who will watch but other than that it promises to be a vast wasteland of ad dollars being refunded by NBC and the second consecutive solo failure for Ryan Seacrest. I wouldn't want you to forget his daytime talk show which bombed in the ratings. Ryan is a second banana kind of guy when it comes to television. It's why he didn't get the CNN gig when Larry King retired. Ryan is great on the radio because he has worked for popular stations and has lots of people to help him get through the hours of show each day. On his television bombs he's left out there alone and no one wants to watch Ryan talk for an hour. The only reason people put up with him on New Years Eve is because we are all drunk. If you aren't drunk chances are you didn't stay up until midnight watching him introduce bands and keep his hair in place.

The other big problem with Million Second Quiz is that no one understands it. It's like Big Brother meets Millionaire but at blinding speeds. NBC will keep bringing every one of its New York based celebrities on air to try and boost the ratings but the number of viewers is almost down by half from Monday's premiere which wasn't all that great to begin with. The CW might end up with more viewers on the show's last night.

It's such stupid show! It's like Who Wants to be a Millionaire on a roof. Just dumb.

Seacrest is a second banana? To whom?

Considering he's one--if not the--most successful TV producers on air currently, methinks the teenager writing today doesn't understand the meaning of the phrase, "second banana."

Ryan has lost his touch, first he was booed at the football game now his game show has tanked. I think he is being punished for KK.

I don't watch game shows. I like shows that contain gratuitous sex, drugs and violence.

I figured out a way to tell apart one of the Enties... They don't know wtf a comma key is. I haven't seen one used in a sentence since yesterday!!!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

Haven't even heard of this shit...I was doing better when I didn't! Thanks Enty!

He is the Dick Clark of his generation. Just watch.

We watched a few minutes of it, and it was utterly confusing. The questions were completely random, ranging from absurdly easy history questions to current event politics to pop culture. And you're given multiple choice? Too easy. Snoozefest.

This sucks. I really wanted him to rule the world.

Never heard of it.

Shut your mouth, Wig! Enty's posts are never lame!

If NBC wants to revive the game show, they should bring back Press Your Luck in all it's 80's glory.

I've never even heard of this show lol. I think RS had his moment where he was huge and but he has already peaked.

Herrrr said...

Sorry, "Enty Love," Enty's COMPLETELY wrong. Seacrest's talk show may have tanked but he'd never play second banana. He's ALWAYS the top banana.

Kelly said...

My little kid likes this show. Lol. Agree, Ryan is so not second banana!

i've seen the previews but didn't even know the show was currently airing. i had/have no intention to watch because i don't watch daytime tv even if it's aired at night (no game shows and no soaps even if they're aired in the form of reality tv.)

i also had no idea about the hook to the game based on the previews. just seemed like another piece of shit coming out of ryan seacrest's ass.

Pugs said...

Can't stand him.

Welcome back Enty.

This show was boring AF.

I confess I kind of like the MSQ. I like guessing the quiz questions and I love that MRI machine they sit in that flashes the money they are winning.

I still don't understand why those people sleep in those little cubicles tho.
That part is too complicated.

I also like that it's outside and I keep hoping it will rain and mess up Ryan's hairdo.

And NBC cancelled Smash for this crap?
