Game Show

A game show is a type of radio or television program in which contestants, television personalities or celebrities, sometimes as part of a team, play a game which involves answering questions or solving puzzles usually for money and/or prizes. The contestants are sometimes invited from a pool of public applicants. On some shows contestants compete against other players or another team while other shows involve contestants playing alone for a good outcome or a high score. Game shows often reward players with prizes such as cash, trips and goods and services provided by the show's sponsor prize suppliers, who in turn usually do so for the purposes of product placement.

Famous quotes containing the words show and/or game:

    you show her the two hands
    that grip each other fiercely,
    one being mine, one being yours.
    Torn right off at the wrist bone
    when you started in your
    impossible going, gone.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    One of life’s primal situations; the game of hide and seek. Oh, the delicious thrill of hiding while the others come looking for you, the delicious terror of being discovered, but what panic when, after a long search, the others abandon you! You mustn’t hide too well. You mustn’t be too good at the game. The player must never be bigger than the game itself.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
