{"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":"https:\/\/media.retrojunk.com\/file\/d7dcc0b8fa2e3276258c4827816c3166fd0235695fa097c5a2cfce4583d24c94e6efa782e1b5de\/image\/12c_7242f4dfff.jpg"}
