Video: $49,000 on the Line on “Let’s Ask America”

Earlier this season on the syndicated survey quiz Let's Ask America, David Luea became the first person to play a perfect game and take home $50,000.  It's not the easiest thing to do by any stretch.  Can someone else come close?  Emily from Great Falls, MT, is close to it.  Throughout the game she's banked $9,800.  By reaching the final she has earned the chance to gamble any of her cash on the last question.  However, if she goes All In, she'll multiply that by five for $49,000...just $1,000 shy of the perfect game.  As you can probably guess by the title Emily has elected to go All In.  Is she going to win big...or go home with $1,000? Click here to see the exciting clip and let us know what you think.

Ratings Report: Turkey Time Erodes Viewership, “Beat the Chefs” is the Most Rotten Egg Thumbnail

Ratings Report: Turkey Time Erodes Viewership, “Beat the Chefs” is the Most Rotten Egg

The moral of this week's syndicated ratings report: People are too busy eating turkey and spending time with family to devotedly watch TV. Ratings are in from the week of November 19, 2012, the week which included Thanksgiving here in the states. Of course, these numbers shouldn't be taken too close to heart, since programming around these times of year are generally down. Wheel of Fortune lost 1.3 million viewers and almost a full ratings point over last week's record high, coming in with just under 10 million viewers and a 6.3 household rating. Click here to read about the rest of the less-than-stellar ratings, including how far Beat the Chefs has fallen.
