"The Moment of Truth"

Fox's new show "The Moment of Truth" is trouble with a capital "T".

It asks the contestant 21 questions, with increasing prize amounts at different levels, up to $500,000. The contestant can leave at any time with the amount of the level they're at. But if the lie detector says they lied, then the contestant loses everything.

But the trouble lies in the questions. I'm telling you, some of these people are getting divorced, or fired, or charged with something. Some of the questions are serious. Very serious.

"Have you ever stolen anything at work?"
"Do you think your wife is a good parent?"
"Have you ever 'gone too far' with a client?"
"Have you ever smuggled anything past customs?"
"Do you think you'll still be married to ___ in five years?"
"Have you ever lied under oath?"

All of these questions are T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Watch, it'll happen sooner or later.
