External Link: Official WebsiteHosted by Ryan Seacrest, â€œThe Million Second Quizâ€ is a state-of-the-art, electrifying new live competition where contestants test the limits of their knowledge, nerve and endurance as they battle each other in intense head-to-head bouts of trivia for 12 consecutive days and nights. When the million second draw to a close, the champions will compete in a grand finale and the ultimate winner will claim the largest prize in game show history. The competition, where time equals money, will air in primetime, LIVE from a three-story hourglass-shaped structure in the heart of Manhattan. Money is accumulated by sitting in the “Money Chair” and answering trivia questions against a rival. For each second a player remains in the chair the money meter will add $10 to the total. The longer a contestant stays in the chair, the more money is added until he/she is defeated by a challenger. During the million seconds the top four players who have accumulated the largest amounts of money up to that point in the game will live next to the hourglass in “Winners’ Row” and try to survive there until the million seconds are up. Other contestants will displace them if they achieve longer runs in the money chair. When the countdown clock hits zero only the four contestants, who have made it to the end, plus the final occupier of the money chair, cash in their winnings and battle it out for the grand prize. The show will be the first fully convergent television experience, where viewers from all across America will be able to play along in sync with the game during primetime and get a chance to be chosen live on air as a contestant for the following nightâ€™s primetime show.
