    Has anyone else watched this? Caught it for the first time last night, and thought it was hysterical. They did a good job of translating the game to TV...

    They need to get rid of that bit where the money counts down as he's reading the question and put in the Gibberish Question (which they left out!).

    The show is a complete piece of crap compared to the game.
    Why I think this show is crap...
    - Paul Reubens' humor isn't that great and it somewhat ruins the show (David Spade would've been a better choice to host this show).
    - The insults are weak.
    - They should have more in your face questions.
    - The $2 million question got old right after the first episode.
    - The Gibberish Question is not on the show.
    - They should subtract money from the contestants if they get a question wrong.
    - Where Paul/Troy tipped the band $30 in the first episode and it subtracted $10 from each player was taken off of one of the first YDKJ games where the joke was executed way better and it delt with a long distance phone call.
    ... and so on and so on ...
    If they got a better host and changed the format around a bit, this show could be great... but instead, it's horrible.

    I'd have to agree with Matthew. I don't think it was very funny. Paul/Troy just doesn't do it for me...I couldn't even finish an entire show. I thought the whole audience had a infomercial-applaud-and-laugh-when-you-see-the-sign feel to it.

    I totally forgot it was on Wednesday. I caught it last week and laughed my butt of the entire hour. I though Paul was little over the top sometimes but for the most part I thought it was a funny show.
