"A pair of contestants is taken through a series of challenges that escalate in level of difficulty, tasking the contestants with discerning the price of the items in each round. If they successfully complete the challenges, contestants can win up to $1 million"
And how much someone paid for this "8 Elvis" picture by Andy Warhol, at auction.
There is even a tissue used by Scarlett Johansen after she was on a Network talk show...auctioned off for $5,300.00. And a used, thrown away dog food can from Paris Hilton's trash, sold for $300.00. Not exactly antiques... so this is where the show and I part ways.
If you're just in it for the entertainment then you'll enjoy this show. If you're a die hard antiquer and love shows like "The Pickers" then this may not be for you.Sounds an awful lot like a modern version of "Let's Make A Deal" meets "Antiques Road Show" without the funny get ups. (Oh wait, that is what Cedric is for!)
Has NBC grown desperate for ratings and jumped on the antique TV bandwagon? Shows on cable like Pawn Stars , The Pickers, and more have grabbed tons of prime time viewers over the past few years. Remember Lara Spencer, the host from Antiques Roadshow? She is one of the Executive Producers. Let's hope her guidance makes this show the real McCoy and not fake reproduction! We'll see coming up this September...
