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!

Dennis Miller, Amnesia
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. We spoke to series host Dennis Miller, that hyper-articulate master of minutiae, about helping people remember those potentially moneymaking little details.
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. Between the intricacy of the questions and the fact that we [don't] keep tabs on life like it’s a textbook, things fall between the cracks. Therein lies the mirth!
Dennis Miller, Sports Unfiltered
He’s baaack! Dennis Miller once again steps away from politics for the slightly less controversial world of sports. "Last time I was in sports, I lasted for two years on Monday Night Football, and then John Madden left Fox [for ABC]. And when John Madden wants your job in football and you’re the stand-up comedian in the booth, he’s going to get your job," Miller says of his 2000-02 stint on MNF. 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.

Question: Instead of the usual TV-show questions I'm sure you get often, how about an awards-show question? We recently had Dennis Miller host the Critics Choice Awards and Craig Ferguson host the People's Choice Awards. Personally, I thought they both sucked [because they] never really [got] into their normal rhythms. With Jon Stewart hosting the Oscars this year, I'm not too optimistic, after his hosting of the Grammys a few years back. I wonder if the Golden Globes have it right (one of the few) by not having a host. Sure, the Oscars have the prestige and pomp of being "the best of the best," but I can only think of the Tonys and maybe Emmys with having the hosts best suited for their awards and crowd in the past few years. I know Jon Stewart hasn't hosted the show yet, but how do you think he'll do, and what if the Oscars got rid of a host altogether?
Answer: I'm hoping Jon Stewart succeeds. He's a smart guy, very funny and currently at the top of his game. Which is reason enough to
