In 1985, Bob Stewart brought a pilot to the networks called $50,000 a Minute, hosted by Geoff Edwards and Meredith MacRae. Two teams (one civilian and one celebrity, paired with one of the hosts) would compete to set a time by trying to guess a subject on a secret monitor. The host would start the question, and the player in control would give the rest of the question. At seven right answers, the set time would be sent to the opposing team. The team with the fastest time would win a star. The first side to win two consecutive stars advanced to the bonus round Payoff Board, where 9 circles each contain a set of initials to a common phrase, title or name. Each correct answer to the phrase was worth $200, but all 9 in 60 seconds wins $10,000 (multiplied by whichever visit to the bonus round was). Two pilots were recorded, this was the first of them. The celebrities are Shelley Smith and Charlie Siebert. The designated champion is Kevin, while the designated challenger is Faith. How well does this first pilot go down?
