Hey, did you know that Carsey-Werner attempted [[Series/YouDontKnowJack an actual TV Game Show]], with Creator/PaulReubens hosting? It lasted six episodes on Creator/{{ABC}} [[ScrewedByTheNetwork before it got replaced.]] Well, at least the computer games aren't going anywhere... I hope. Actually, now that {{THQ}} (the company that produced the revival for all three major consoles [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and the]] NintendoDS on February 8, 2011) has gone bankrupt, for a while it looked like I'd need to start looking for a new job. Thankfully, Jackbox started self-publishing, and even handed me a sweet new gig hosting ''Fibbage'' and its sequel. So that should keep the lights on and the cats fed. For now.

* WhoWantsToBeWhoWantsToBeAMillionaire: Gloriously averted on the TV show, with its $2,000,000 question. The value starts at $2,000,000 and counts down over time, so Reubens would take as long as possible to ask the question, getting distracted by some other event, often prolonging it afterward by stumbling over his words or coughing. When a contestant finally gets to buzz in, the question is worth as low as a few hundred to ''$2''.

** In ''2011'' Cookie opens one episode by mentioning a password which most would view as a throwaway gag. The next to last question asks you what the password is. After the question is over Cookie mentions another password that he suggests might be the answer to a future installment of the series.

** As mentioned in the TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything example, typing in [[PrecisionFStrike "Fuck you"]] in the Gibberish Question box always yields a shocked reaction of some sort from the host, followed by what is at least a massive hit to the player's score. If a second player does it, [[spoiler:nothing happens, since the host doesn't find it original any more]]. Doing it a third time [[spoiler:makes the host get tired and quit the game]].

''You Don't Know Jack'' is the sassy game franchise that was developed by Creator/JackboxGames (formerly Jellyvision Studios) and published by those fine folks at Creator/{{Sierra}} (at least until ''5th Dementia''), starting in the mid-1990s. The hilarious combination of pop culture references with strange academic references, often supplemented by a variety of {{Parody Commercial}}s before and after each game, made for a great combination, and the games were marginally popular for a while.
