Producer: Pearson Television
Host: Mark Henning
Taping Info: 1998
Made it to Air: 100% aired in four markets in a limited run (Seattle, Columbus Ohio, Dallas and Jacksonville) and was hosted by Casey Kasem in 1999. This was attempted as a piggy back to prop up the Michael Burger (no relation) version of Match Game, but its lackluster testing and the lack of clearances doomed it.
Availability: Trading circuit.

Jeopardy! has the potential of asking 61 questions in a show. If that just isn't enough for you, then Pearson Television in 1999 had the cure for you in 100%. The premise was simple. An off-screen narrator asked 100 either three-part multiple choice or true-false questions to three contestants. Players locked in their answers, and the one at the end who answered the most got ten whole bucks per answer. The players scores are recapped every 10 questions, although they are told just the numbers, not what player has which score. If someone had managed to answer all 100, they would have received a $99,000 bonus.

That's it. No bonus game. No excitement (despite the claim in the pitch before the pilot that "100% is more exciting than the Internet"), and a prize budget of less than $1,000 a show. The switching was even robotic, as every question was three-shot, shot of contestant #1 for part A, shot of contestant #2 for part B, shot of contestant #3 for part C, three-shot again for the answer. This show was apparently is popular in the U.K., where it aired from 1997-2003, where the winner got an even lower prize (100) and the high score after six years is 94.

Here's the Adobe AfterEffects graphic.

Here's the question.

Player #1.

Player #2.

Player #3.

Here's the answer. Repeat 99 more times. Wake up viewer.
