NBC has announced an ambitious new game show arriving this fall that puts online contestants on TV in a twelve-day non-stop trivia game. Called The Million Second Quiz, the show will house players in an hourglass-shaped structure in Manhattan, where the top four ranking contestants will try to keep their scores up to beat people online that are trying to take their spot. Once the twelve days are up, the four top contestants will go head to head to win up to $10 million in prizes. NBC will be streaming the show live 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the competition, though it will be aired on TV during a prime time segment. NBC says that The Million Second Quiz will arrive sometime this fall, but did not provide an exact date.
