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

The Better Sex was a game show airing on ABC daytime. It pitted five men and five women trying to outguess each other on questions about the opposite sex.

A question is posed to a team, and each member gives an answer. Two members of the other team try to predict if he/she is right or bluffing. The opposing team loses two members if they predict wrong; the answering team loses two members if the predicting team is correct. Play continues until the men or women lose all five players.

The winning team faces thirty members of the studio audience, each of the opposite sex of the team. The object is to outbluff all thirty members using six questions for a $5000 prize. Any remaining audience members split $500.
