The Whammy is back to make more trouble in the fifth season of the Press Your Luck TV show on ABC. As we all know, Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Press Your Luck is cancelled or renewed for season six. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustrated when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the fifth season episodes of Press Your Luck here.
An ABC primetime game show, the Press Your Luck TV series is a revival of the 1980s daytime series which ran for three seasons on CBS. Hosted by Elizabeth Banks, the show features contestants squaring off to answer questions in a game of wits, strategy, and high stakes. During each game, three contestants compete against each other by answering questions to earn spins on the Big Board. Contestants then use their spins to win cash and prizes while trying to avoid the WHAMMY, who could take all of their winnings and leave them with nothing. The winning contestant moves on to the bonus round to face the WHAMMY in a final battle for the chance to win a million dollars.
