{"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\/66a414a3927ddcfd22fc2a16e2acf97515dedfdee7e170549674557c47f419f0a99c996c3e746e\/image\/12c_7242f4dfff.jpg"}
