Friday was ridiculously awesome. I got out of work early and headed up to East 67th to see a taping of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with Rourke, Quinones, and Frankie McSpankie. I had been dying to go and it was relatively easy to get tickets because the show has fallen out of its prime time spotlight of yester-year. It was cool to see how everything was run but we all got a little bored during the tapping. There was a guest host (Tim Gunn) from Project Runway. He seems like a cool guy. Def. Uncle material. Why not?
What bugged me the most was that they changed the format of the show. Basically the first 10 questions are put in random order and given random dollar amounts. (Ex. One of the chickie poo contestants had a question asking what kind of hamburgers does Wendy’s make. The answer being old-fashioned. That delicious question merited her a cool $25,000!) WTF! It takes the skill out of it in my opinion. People were only walking away with amounts like $8,000 and $21,000.
