Bob Saget does a fine job hosting his first true game show (I don't count "America's Funniest Home Videos"), but aside from an incredible set and a unique concept, he has little to work with. The questions are different, essentially being solved out in two steps rather than one (like the "Seabiscuit" question), but just like "Deal or No Deal" in it's first week, there were some problems with editing, particularly mob shots and Saget's voice-overs. In spite of this, the show moves along well, and Saget is always in control. The issue is this: Nobody in their right mind will ever go all the way to the million dollar top prize. They would be foolish to risk $150,000 to possibly add another $30-$50,000 on one question or possibly lose everything. The only way someone wins the top prize is if they decide from the beginning that it's all-or-nothing, and turn down every chance at money until the whole Mob is gone.
The Mob concept, however, is a good one, and I think that with increased question difficulty and a revamped money ladder, the show could be a real success, with some fairly tense decisions and payouts.
