The American version ran two seasons, ending in 2008. In 2009, Microsoft revived the show in a unique way - as an [[{{Xbox360}} Xbox Live]] game through a twice-weekly primetime event for all Gold members. The One and Mob remained unchanged, while the game allowed the crowd (anyone playing the game who was neither the One or a member of the Mob) to also answer questions; the top three scorers of the round got a free Xbox Live Arcade game (no small feat, as there could be up to several ''thousand'' people in the crowd at any time). Selection for being the One or a Mob member depended on score, and the game was played for Microsoft Points using the last NBC format.

GameShow which originated in the Netherlands and has been exported to over 30 countries, with the US version originally airing on Creator/{{NBC}}. In the game, one player (the One) plays against 100 other people (the Mob). The players are asked a series of questions; if the One correctly guesses, he moves on to the next question, while all Mob members who answered incorrectly are knocked out. The goal of the One is to answer as many questions as it takes to knock out all of the Mob. If the One answers a question incorrectly, the game ends and (in some versions) the prize money is distributed amongst any remaining Mob members.

*** The choices were A) "The city whose mayor is Richard Daley." ([[spoiler:Chicago, the wrong answer the Mob majority picked and what the One got stuck with when he used his "Trust The Mob"]]). B) "The city whose mayor is Adrian Fenty." ([[spoiler:Washington D.C., which makes this the correct answer; 5 Mob members answered this, making "Trust The Mob" [[PressXToDie worse than useless]]]]). C) "The city whose mayor is Gavin Newsome." ([[spoiler:San Francisco)]]).

* TemporaryOnlineContent: When the Xbox Live version was canned, ''all'' of its content was removed rather than just the live shows (presumably not to conflict with the upcoming GSN iteration). Didn't get all the Achievements? Too bad!
