YOU DESERVE IT

THE GOOD: It's an admirable concept - contestants not playing for themselves but playing for someone they love who desperately needs the money. At this giving time of year, it's always nice to see people genuinely surprised by the kindness of others. The questions were challenging enough to play along at home with some clever wording in the clues that might be just enough to throw a contestant (or us) off course. Also, they didn't tease with commercials like so many other game shows in this family do.
BOTTOM LINE: This shouldn't be an instant disaster like last year's Skating with the Stars filler for ABC, but there's just not much there. It should be fine as a holiday filler but it is just that, filler. It is just your average game show with an admirable, but ultimately inconsequential (in terms of game play), twist.
