About "Show Me the Money":
"Show Me the Money," the high-octane variety/game show series hosted by Emmy-winning television legend William Shatner, will move to its new time period, TUESDAYS (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), effective JANUARY 2, 2007 on the ABC Television Network.
"Show Me the Money" contestants must answer a minimum of six trivia questions. After each answer, the contestant must choose from among thirteen stunning dancers on stage, each of whom holds a scroll with a dollar figure to be added or subtracted - for correct or incorrect answers -- to the contestant's total.
A correct answer combined with choosing a dancer holding big money can quickly catapult the player's winnings into the millions. But a wrong answer combined with the wrong dancer can wipe out winnings in an instant. There is no opportunity to play it safe - contestants will be tempted to take the money and run, but this rollercoaster ride of a game show requires that you play to the very end.
Adding to the variety aspect of the show are thirteen dazzling Million Dollar Dancers ready to break into any style of dance, while audacious master of ceremonies William Shatner spontaneously boogies with the beauties on stage.
"Show Me the Money" is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. Endemol produces hit series including ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." The series is executive-produced by Mike Nichols.
