‘Dial For Dollars’ Meets The Digital Age

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new game show on TBS promises to be the digital age’s answer to Dialing for Dollars.

It’s called Midnight Money Madness and instead of a live, studio audience, viewers from all over the U. S. play by paying 99 cents to call or text message in answers to trivia questions.

Show spokesman Jon Vlassopoulos says the first caller to correctly answer the question has a chance to play one of the various phone games on the air for cash prizes.

The show premieres Monday (Aug. 28) and will be on four nights a week at midnight.

Although that’s past many peoples’ bedtimes, Vlassopoulos isn’t worried about viewers sleeping through the show.

But he is worried about late night revelers who might call in as a drunken prank which is why he’s glad “there’s a five second delay button and the calls are screened.”
