[[spoiler: (Chicago, and this is 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."

** Another one from the NBC run: Who was the first President of the United States? A) The one born in Maryland, B) The one born in Pennsylvania, or C) The one born in Virginia? [[note]] Correct Answer is C, since "The one born in Virginia" IS George Washington, the first President. [[/note]]

Reruns of the NBC version began airing on {{GSN}}, which became very popular, especially when combined with the then-ongoing Xbox Live version. The show was {{Uncanceled}} again on November 15, 2010 with [[DancingWithTheStars Carrie Ann Inaba]] as emcee, albeit as a cheaper production with no physical setup for the Mob and a much smaller top prize of $50,000 (sometimes $100,000); the show ended again after just eight weeks.

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'' crowd members 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.

** The British version had a Double and three Dodges, granted after the first question. The former doubled the prize money for that question, whereas the latter skipped the question at the cost of half the accumulated money, and no reward for that question. A fourth Dodge could be optionally acquired after 75 of the 100 were eliminated, but the question for it could not itself be dodged.
