The Wikipedia article of the day for August 6, 2017 is The Chase (U.S. game show).
The Chase is an American television quiz show based on the British program of the same name. It premiered on August 6, 2013, on the Game Show Network, hosted by Brooke Burns and featuring Mark Labbett as a quiz show genius called the “chaser”. The American version of the show follows the same general format as the original UK version, but with teams of three contestants instead of four. Each player who stays ahead of the chaser on the gameboard retains the winnings for that round. Successful contestants advance to the Final Chase, in which they answer questions as a team playing for an equal share of the prize fund accumulated during the episode. The Chase earned positive reviews, as did Burns and Labbett individually, and the pacing of the game was mentioned favorably. At the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, the series was nominated for Outstanding Game Show, and Burns was nominated two years later for Outstanding Game Show Host.
