The Weakest Link (syndicated)

Show Summary

Welcome to the Weakest Link (syndicated) guide at TV Tome. On January 7, 2002, the new five-day-a-week version of Weakest Link debuted on stations across the country. The host is George Gray, an actor and comedian best known for hosting The Learning Channel's Junkyard Wars and Game Show Network's Extreme Gong. He may not have the UK hostess (Anne Robinson) icy demeanor, but George makes up for his inherent non-Britishness by being lightning-quick with zingers that are just as cutting than Mrs. Robinson's - sometimes more so! New Series On the new half-hour version that premiered September 23, 2004, six contestants compete, with rounds decreasing by 15 seconds each (from 1:45 for the first round to a scant 45 seconds for the double-stakes final round). The maximum pot available is $100,000, with each round having a $25,000 target. Even with the lower stakes, most early contestants seemed afraid to risk too much cash and banked at the $500 or $1,000 levels of the chain (shown at left). At show's end, it's a best-of-three faceoff to determine who wins the jackpot - and who goes away with nothing. Related Shows The Weakest Link (UK)- The original series hosted by Anne Robinson .
