ABC'S "101 WAYS TO LEAVE A GAME SHOW" SHOWCASES SOME OF THE MOST
SPECTACULAR CONTESTANT ELIMINATIONS EVER SEEN ON TELEVISION, INCLUDING
BEING STRAPPED TO THE WING OF A BI-PLANE, DROPPED OFF THE SIDE OF
A SPEEDING 18-WHEELER, OR LAUNCHED SKY HIGH BY A CRATE OF DYNAMITE,
ON THE SERIES PREMIERE, TUESDAY, JUNE 21 ON ABC
"You Fuse, You Lose" - "101 Ways to Leave a Game Show" kicks off its wild series premiere TUESDAY, JUNE 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET). The stakes are high as players match wits in a series of multiple choice questions, with one person being eliminated every round. The eight contestants must avoid giving a wrong answer that could get them eliminated from the show by either being strapped down to the wing of a soaring bi-plane, dropped off the side of a speeding 18-wheeler, flipped upside down in an exploding car, or launched sky-high by a crate of dynamite. Only the final four contestants who survive will have a showdown -- atop a ten-story drop from The Tower -- for a chance at taking home the $50,000 prize.
Jeff Sutphen (Nickelodeon's "Brian Surge") hosts.
