NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

50 Grand Slam was a game show airing on NBC daytime. It was an untainted throwback to the scandal era of big money quiz shows of the 1950s.

A field of nine contestants competed. Two are selected at random and they each are placed in isolation booths and must answer four-part questions. The player who answers the most proceeds on. The levels of cash prizes start at $200 and goes up to the top prize of $50,000. Successful players could stop at anytime and go home with their winnings to that point.
