Description from the packaging.

The exciting game that makes you a TV network "Big Shot!"

  • Make up your own TV shows!
  • Put 'em on the air!
  • Cancel turkeys!
  • Yell at people!
  • Fight furious network battles and live to talk about it!
  • Conspire and Collude!
  • Fully animated- including digitized sound!

Tired of watching bad TV? Well, now you can so something about it... you can make it worse! Yes, you can be the one who makes those marvelously bright decisions, killing those great shows. Can you give your network those high ratings it demands? Can you keep your programming budget in the black? Well, you better... because network programmers can be canceled just as easily as network programs! If you survive the season, and come out as king or queen of the jungle (oh, it is a jungle out there!), then send in your resume to your nearest TV network...you may be able to take them to Prime Time heaven!

Looking for a family game that is just plain fun? Be dazzled by the graphics (of network boardrooms, power lunches, trade newspapers, etc.) and amused by the satiric content of the game (there are 160 programs and 15 specials available for use by the players...Each crazy show has its own built-in demographic targets, and capsule description which shows on the game screen during play). There are even a couple of commercials (animated digitized cartoons) that will interrupt the game at key points!

The game is so uproariously funny, it is very difficult to dislike! Plus, with so many variations, the game will rarely play the same twice.How have you lived without it?

  • Compete against Fred Silverfish.
  • Run your network empire from behind your desk.
  • Bid for specials against other networks.
