Ryan Seacrest and contestant
Million Second Quiz had a highly publicized launch on Monday night — but not for the reasons NBC probably hoped.
The live game show, which incorporates an app where viewers at home can participate and vie for a spot on the show, was stymied when its app actually crashed mid-way through the premiere. Host Ryan Seacrest addressed the snafu during the show on Tuesday.

"Last night so many of you were playing along on your MSQ apps that you actually crashed the system," Seacrest said, according to Deadline.com. "The good news is you made us the No. 1 free app on iTunes. But wait, there's more good news. They tell me it's actually fixed — I hope so."
Million Second Quiz airs all this week at 8/7c on NBC. Have you been playing along?
