    Premise: 3 contestants participate in a bizarre pop culture trivia game
    Aired on MTV
    It started the trend of MTV showing non-music programming.
    Ken Ober once kicked all three contestants off of the show after the first round for incorrectly answering a question about Eric Clapton.
    The show had a segment called 'Wheel of Torture' where contestants would lose points unless they let Colin Quinn 'torture' them by giving them wet willies, noogies, etc.
    There were 4 different co-hosts throughout the show's 3 year run.
    A more mature version of the show called 'Couch Potatoes' was made for syndication, but it was quickly canceled.
    It is Ken Ober's only successful game show.
    It started the careers of Adam Sandler, Colin Quinn, and Denis Leary.
    It was on TV guide's list of 'The 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time.'
    Bob Eubanks made a guest appearance on the show to give Ken Ober some advice on hosting a game show.
    When a contestant was eliminated from the game, the audience would sing 'Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.'
    Its popularity spawned a video game and a home game.
    It was one of the most popular shows on MTV and it is fondly remembered by people who were in their teens or twenties in the 80's.
