The Travel Channel’s new game show “Scream If You Know the Answer” has the same charm. A simple program in which teams of contestants try to answer questions while riding on terrifying amusement-park rides, it has low production values and a casually funny host who never takes anything seriously. The questions are easy for folks watching at home — that’s part of the point — and the prize money is minimal. Viewers will be pleasantly surprised.
The basic format of the show is that of a conventional panel game. The hosts (Reeves and Mortimer) and the two teams of three sit behind desks. The hosts ask questions of the two teams, and points are awarded for "correct" answers. The scoring is largely arbitrary and simply a device to give a structure to the proceedings. Reeves will almost always perform a gesture of rubbing both his thighs in front of a beautiful female guest seated directly to his right, to indicate his attraction to her.
