1 VERSUS 100

Hot on the heels of NBC and Endemol USA's hit game show "Deal or No Deal," NBC announced today it's bringing the latest international game show phenomenon to American audiences -- "1 Versus 100." The announcement was made by Craig Plestis, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming and Development, NBC Entertainment.

"We've heard hundreds of pitches on game shows since 'Deal or No Deal' became a hit, but this was truly the first one that knocked my socks off," said Plestis. "Knowing this is the same team that made 'Deal' clinched the deal for us."

"It's no secret that Endemol has been credited for the resurgence of the game show genre based on our success with 'Deal or No Deal'," said David Goldberg, President of Endemol USA. "Our company has no shortage of existing and new game show formats and '1 Versus 100' was the perfect fit for NBC. The show has an event feel, is easy to understand, has great tension and conflict and will have the largest cash prize of a serialized show to date."

In "1 Versus 100," one player must outlast a mob of 100 people in a tense battle of brains and greed for a chance to win a multi-million dollar cash prize. 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 top prize.

From Endemol USA, "1 Versus 100" is an international hit in Sweden, Belgium, Holland (where it originated), Germany, Argentina and Portugal and was recently sold to BBC in the United Kingdom to air in primetime.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.

Saget Boards Game-Show Train

Comedian will host NBC's '1 vs. 100'

LOS ANGELES -- "Deal or No Deal" has turned Howie Mandel into one of the most-watched people on television. Now comes Bob Saget, hoping for the same result with a new game show on NBC.

Saget -- "America's beloved funnyman," NBC calls him -- has signed on to host "1 vs. 100," a game in which, as the title implies, one contestant plays a game against 100 others. The show, a Dutch import that's being brought to the States by "Deal or No Deal" producer Endemol, will debut sometime during the 2006-07 season.

"Bob is popular with audiences of all ages and is a perfect fit as host," says Craig Plestis, head of alternative programming at NBC. "His irreverent sense of humor and comedic timing will keep audiences laughing and glued to their TV sets as the drama of this high-stakes game unfolds."

In "1 vs. 100," a single player faces off against a group of 100 others in a trivia game. Members of the big group are eliminated as they answer questions wrong, and the longer the single player stays in, the bigger the possible prize.

Saget is probably best-known as the star of such family-friendly fare as "Full House" and "America's Funniest Home Videos," although his stand-up material is rather more grown-up. He's also done image-subverting work in HBO's "Entourage" and the film "The Aristocrats," about the dirtiest joke of all time.

He's currently at work on "Farce of the Penguins," a parody of the documentary "March of the Penguins" that will hit theaters in early 2007. He also does the voice-over narration on the CBS comedy "How I Met Your Mother."

New Series Import from Endemol USA, The Producers of 'Deal or No Deal'

BURBANK -- September 27, 2006 -- 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," from Endemol USA, premiering its five-week run on Friday, October 13 (9-10 p.m.) following an original episode of "Deal or No Deal" (8-9 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" (9-10 p.m. ET). As a result, "Crossing Jordan" will rejoin the NBC schedule at a date to be announced later.

The announcement was made today by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

"This entertaining game is a proven winner from Europe that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as the pressure builds with every question and the financial stakes grow higher," said Reilly. "Bob Saget is the perfect host to keep things percolating without letting the excitement of so many people spin out of control."

Reilly continued: "The introduction of this new show also allows us the luxury of saving such a proven and versatile series as 'Crossing Jordan' for use later in the season."

From Endemol USA, the producers of NBC's "Deal or No Deal," the hotly anticipated new game show is hosted by popular comedian Bob Saget ("Full House," "America's Funniest Home Videos"). The essence of the game 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.

"1 vs 100" is an international hit in Sweden, Belgium, Holland (where it originated), Germany, Argentina and Portugal and was recently sold to BBC in the United Kingdom to air in primetime.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. The series is executive-produced by Scott St. John.

The announcement was made by Craig Plestis, Senior Vice President, Alternative and West Coast Specials Programming and Development, NBC Entertainment.

" '1 vs 100' grabbed the public's attention when it delivered solid ratings last Friday and staked out its own identity to become a great extension of our game-show franchise," said Plestis. "Our partners at Endemol have produced another high-quality series. This was an 'odds-on' easy decision."

"Our strategy to develop and sell new game shows in the wake of 'Deal or No Deal's' success is paying off," said David Goldberg, President of Endemol USA.

Hosted by Bob Saget ("Full House," "America's Funniest Home Videos"), "1 vs 100's" premiere on Friday, October 13 scored a 4.2 rating, 13 share in adults 18-49 with 12.8 million viewers overall, making it the highest 18-49 rating for any non-sports Friday telecast on any network since January 28, 2005 and the highest overall viewer total for any Friday telecast on any network since April 7, 2006. "1 vs 100" was NBC's highest non-Olympic 18-49 rating in the time period since December 27, 2002 ("Dateline NBC") and, in total viewers, NBC's biggest audience in the time period, excluding Olympics, since March 19, 2004 ("Dateline NBC").

The series will air this Friday, October 20 from 9-10 p.m. following an all-new episode of "Deal or No Deal," and will then move to its regular time-slot, Fridays (8-9 p.m.), beginning on Friday, October 27, leading into the anticipated season premiere of "Las Vegas."

1 vs 100's Bob Saget Reveals How He Got Game (Show)

by Joseph Hudak

Bob Saget, 1 vs 100

Best known for benign turns on Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos, Bob Saget shattered his wholesome image with extremely ribald appearances on HBO's Entourage and in the film The Aristocrats. The comic showed us a little bit of both personalities when he chatted about hosting NBC's 1 vs 100 (Fridays at 8 pm/ET), the latest game show from the Deal or No Deal folks.

TV Guide: Why 1 vs 100?

Saget: It's the most amazing thing ever made. [Laughs] I've been saying no to game shows since the video show. But [the producers] said I was the only guy who could do this, because once we got the palette laid

Instead of getting a certain amount of money for each person you eliminate, you get a certain amount of money for eliminating 10 people at a time.

eliminate 10 people - $1,000

20 people - $5,000

30 people - $10,000

40 people - $25,000

50 people - $50,000

60 people - $75,000

70 people - $100,000

80 people - $250,000

90 people - $500,000

100 people - $1,000,000
