One contestant will battle "the mob" of 100 others in an attempt to win $1 million in NBC's newest international game show import 1 vs 100
, premiering its five-week run on Friday, October 13 (9 p.m. ET). Following the series premiere, "1 vs 100" will air in its regular time slot on Fridays at 8 p.m. beginning October 20, leading into the return of Las Vegas
(9 p.m. ET). As a result, Crossing Jordan
will rejoin the NBC schedule at a date to be announced later.
Hosted by Bob Saget
, the essence of "1 vs 100" requires that one player must outlast "the mob" of 100 people in a tense battle of brains and guts for a chance to win up to $1 million. To stay in the game, the player must answer trivia questions and get every one right -- wrong answers from the mob eliminates them from the game, driving up the cash prize for the player. If the player can eliminate all 100 members of the mob, they'll go home with the $1 million top prize. However, if the player gets one answer wrong, the game is over and "the mob" will split the player's winnings up to that point.
