Howie Mandel's newest effort, "Take it All," will feature contestants stealing prizes from each other
Howie Mandel's latest entry into the game-show genre will premiere Dec. 10 on NBC, the network said Friday.
"Take it All" (formerly titled "Howie Mandel's White Elephant") will air Dec. 10-14 at 9 p.m. ET, wrapping up its run with back-to-back episodes on Dec. 17, starting at 9 p.m.
The show will feature a contestant selecting and opening a high-end prize, with the next player having to decide if they will steal the prize or take a chance with a second, unopened prize, which could be worth more than the first prize. When the contestants have been narrowed down to two players, they will be forced to decide if they want to keep what they've won, or take all of the prizes.
In what basically amounts to a high-stakes game of rock-paper-scissors, if one player chooses to keep their prizes and the other chooses to take all of the prizes, the "take it all" player goes home with all of the prizes. However, if they both choose to take all of the prizes, they both go home empty-handed.
The airing of "Take it All" means that "The Voice" will run a one-hour episode rather than a two-hour episode at 8 p.m. on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17.
"Take It All" comes via Universal Television and Alevy Productions, with Mandel, Scott St. John and Mike Marks as the executive producers.
