Fandango's Movie Math: How You Can Cash in on NBC's 'Million Second Quiz'

How much do you think you know about '80s movies, past U.S. presidents and astronomy? Get ready to show your stuff on September 9 when NBCU (our parent company) premieres what it's calling "the first fully convergent television event" that will give its winner the largest prize giveaway in game show history.

Over the course of 12 consecutive days and nights, contestants from around the country can face off in head-to-head, real-time bouts of trivia, earning $10 for every second they remain in the game. When the million seconds are up, the top four players and the final challenger will battle it out for the grand prize.
