Cash Cab is set in a New York taxi cab, driving around the city, but in this cab, you don\'t pay the driver, he pays you. Unsuspecting people of all different types get in the cab, and are often startled by the flashing lights that go off when the door closes. Riders are given a chance to earn some decent cash, by correctly answering trivia questions. But, as host, Ben Bailey, says, \"Its three strikes, and you\'re out!\"
With the wide varity of people that get in the cab, there are some you root for, and others that make you feel schadenfreude as the continually miss easy questions. Cash Cab is easily one of the most underrated shows on TV right now.
