The Game Show Network will spoof the California recall election in an upcoming special, Who Wants to Be Governor of California? The Debating Game. Airing Oct. 1 (a week before the election), the show will feature five of the candidates in a wide-ranging debate, including buzz-in answers and bonus questions. The winner will receive $21,200, the maximum corporate campaign contribution allowed by California law.
