The Wall is a new game show on NBC where “regular people” can win up to $12 million every night. Each episode features a team of two who try to answer questions. If they answer a question correctly a green ball falls down the wall and money is added to their winning total. If they miss a question, a red ball falls and deducts money from the winning total. As the game progresses, the questions become more difficult and the teammates must play separately.

The host of The Wall is Chris Hardwick. He’s known for hosting AMC’s Talking Dead, the talk show that follows The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Back in the day, he hosted MTV’s dating game Singled Out with Jenny McCarthy. Hardwick is also the CEO of Nerdist Industries (a network of podcasts) and husband of $100 million heiress Lydia Hearst, Patty Hearst’s daughter. The Wall, which lists Hardwich and NBA Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James as executive producers, airs Mondays at 10pm on NBC.
