Win $50 from Cash Cab, now in syndication

Discovery’s game show Cash Cab, which takes place in an actual cab and is hosted by the cab’s driver and comedian Ben Bailey, is now in syndication, airing five nights a week (check your local listings).

To mark that occasion, the show has offered three lucky reality blurred readers prizes: a $50 Visa cash card and the Cash Cab board game to the winner, and, for two runners-up, the board game alone.

To enter, you need a U.S. mailing address, and you must do two things:

  1. Comment below. That’s your entry, and you can do this once per day until Monday.
  2. E.mail me your contact information: your name and mailing address. If you do not send me an e.mail message with this information, your comment entries will be invalidated, because I need this if you win to pass along to show’s representatives, who will send your prize. I won’t use that information for anything else.

You can enter once a day–again, by commenting–until Monday at noon ET, for a maximum of six entries. I’ll randomly select one winner and two runners-up at that time. No purchase is necessary, et cetera, blah blah blah.

The Quest ends its journey stronger than it began

Verlox from The Quest

A review of the finale of summer's best reality series, which wasn't always perfect but was thoroughly entertaining right down to the finish, which included phenomenal challenges and special effects. Will ABC give it a second season?

Plus: an interview with the actor who played Verlox and the ogre.

Shark Tank is getting a spin-off

Companies that get deals on the show will be followed for this new spin-off.

Also: Before the show began, Shark Barbara Corcoran was cast and then replaced--but then she sent this amazing e-mail and won the job.
