Another day, another primetime game show. But unlike a good chunk of the ones out there, this one actually involves something other than luck to win the dough. In NBCs Amnesia, contestants will be competing for cash by answering questions. No, not about fifth grade academia, or which briefcase to open, but questions about minutiae in their lives!

In NBC's new game show Amnesia (Fridays at 9 pm/ET), contestants compete for big money by answering questions about a subject they should have firsthand knowledge of — their own lives.

TV Guide: Amnesia sounds reminiscent of This Is Your Life.Dennis Miller: It's This Is Your Life meets Jeopardy.... I think Ken Jennings would be better answering questions about trivia than he would his own life, because people don’t seem to remember things.

His new weekly series, Sports Unfiltered with Dennis Miller (premiering tonight at 10 pm/ET on VS), features a familiar lineup of trademark rants, monologues, interviews and reviews of the top sports headlines. Here's a preview.
