Skype will play the key role in a brand new game show called “Let's Ask America” that will premiere today on seven Scripps stations.
The idea behind this new concept is pretty simple: four contestants connect to a remote server via Skype and need to answer trivia questions in order to collect points. Each round, one player is eliminated and the last one left wins.
An Internet connection is obviously needed, but it's worth mentioning that the overall audio and video quality provided by Skype makes everything possible.
The show will be hosted by Kevin Pereira and will be aired on KNXV (ABC) Phoenix, WFTS (ABC) Tampa, WMAR (ABC) Baltimore, KSHB (NBC) Kansas City, WCPO (ABC) Cincinnati, WEWS (ABC) Cleveland and KJRH (NBC) Tulsa, Okla.
