CONCEPT A new game show from the exec producer of The Biggest Loser tests family members’ knowledge of each other.
THE SCOOP The show was inspired by a pastime of executive producer and host JD Roth and his family: ”We’d go around the table and [ask] ‘What’s your favorite color? Your favorite vegetable?”’ says Roth. ”It’s about how well you know your family.” To find stumper questions, the team talks to the competing families’ bosses, teachers, dry cleaners, and even looks up trivia on birth certificates.
BOTTOM LINE Watch it with your loved ones — if you dare! ”Your kid is gonna turn to you and ask ‘Dad, do you know the day I was born?’ And you’re gonna have to answer.”
