{"title":"Idiot Savants","dateDebut":"1996","dateEnd":"1997","description":"This was MTV's more intellectual game show. Hosted by Greg Fitzsimmons, this show had an interesting format in which the same 4 players played for 5 days straight. The person with the greatest number of points after five days won.\r\n\r\nMonday through Thursday was played with three rounds, and a final \"Grand Savant Round\" where the person with the most points on that day answered questions alone on a category they selected before the show. On Friday, points are doubled with the lowest scorer being eliminated after each round. The remaining two contestants would compete in a final Geand Savant Round and the one with the most points won.","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/cf9e7a85313892a95c07a3b6bc4f9c0f87c341316341f251e84125f8493388f23b3b1f\/image\/12c_7242f4dfff.jpg"}
