Jane Lynch (“Hollywood Game Night”) hosts this reboot of a British game show that aired previously on this network from 2001-02, hosted by tart British TV personality Anne Robinson. In each episode, eight contestants work as a team to answer general-knowledge questions, with the value of each consecutive correct answer increasing exponentially. If a player gives a wrong answer, though, the money awarded drops back to the lowest amount. At the end of each round, the team votes to eject the player they see as their “weakest link.”
