WHO'S STILL STANDING?
Hosted by Ben Bailey
Who's Still Standing is a new NBC game show airing for a week as a "four day holiday special." It is basically another twist on a standard trivia show. There is a contestant in the middle trying to win a million dollars but he first must battle 10 strangers who are trying to outlast them in a back and forth trivia contest.
THE BAD: As is often the case, current game shows just try to be too fancy and too gimmicky and don't focus on making a quality game. This show was filled with easy and boring trivia while focusing on such a stupid gimmick as falling through the floor. The show tried to be humorous with the other contestants but it came off fakey ("street smart, book smart, etc"). Also, the first contestant of the 10 was incredibly annoying. I understand it's a family show but the questions were too easy for too long and the results were anticlimactic. Ben Bailey seemed ill at ease and perhaps seemed to know that this is a dumb show. All in all, it's completely skippable.
