Short-lived Game Show created by Mark Goodson which ran on ABC from October 8, 1984 to April 5, 1985. The show pitted a team of three "Juniors" (each under 30) and three "Seniors" (each over 30) against each other.The original format had Round 1 offering two rows of four answers each. The team chose one of the two rows and was asked a question related to it. Each team member had to eliminate the three wrong answers from that row, with $50 won for each wrong answer eliminated and $300 if all three wrong answers were removed.On December 17, Round 1 was re-tooled into two sub-rounds: First was "Fact or Fiction", wherein each team played two true-or-false questions, winning $25 for each correct answer. After it came the "Trivia Trap" round, playing two questions each (again with the two choices of four answers); here, the team members could agree or disagree on which right answer they picked, earning more money if everyone picked the right answer.Both formats used the same rules for the next rounds: the $1,000 Trivia Race, which was simply pick a category, answer a question, lather-rinse-repeat; the first ten questions were worth $100 each, with all subsequent ones worth $200. After all that, the winning team proceeded to the $10,000 Trivia Ladder, a multi-tiered bonus round. Here, each teammate is offered a question, and getting the question right offered each team member a chance at splitting the $10,000 grand prize.
