The summer replacements are wrapping up their runs tonight and into the next couple of weeks as the 2013-2014 Fall TV Season begins very soon. Until then NBC has a stop-gap event program called "The Million Second Quiz" hosted by Ryan Seacrest.
Via NBC: "The competition, where time equals money, will air in primetime, LIVE from a three-story hourglass-shaped structure in the heart of Manhattan. Money is accumulated by sitting in the "Money Chair" and answering trivia questions against a rival. For each second a player remains in the chair the money meter will add $10 to the total. The longer a contestant stays in the chair, the more money is added until he/she is defeated by a challenger. During the million seconds the top players who have accumulated the largest amounts of money up to that point in the game will live next to the hourglass in "Winners' Row" and try to survive there until the million seconds are up. Other contestants will displace them if they achieve longer runs in the money chair. When the countdown clock hits zero only the final few contestants who have made it to the end cash in their winnings and battle it out for the grand prize."
Viewers can play along by downloading a game app for their phones and have a chance to compete on the series itself.
