Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Floor is a trivia-themed game show in which the season champion wins $250,000. Actor Rob Lowe oversees a challenge that pits self-proclaimed trivia experts against each other to see who can gain the most leverage on "The Floor," a giant lit-up grid on which dozens of players from many diverse backgrounds stand, awaiting their turn to challenge a neighbor in trivia. Lots of brands are mentioned in this show because contestants are asked to identify things like car brands and slogans. Character strengths include perseverance and communication.
Is It Any Good?
Hosted by a charismatic Rob Lowe, this trivia game show might ultimately value staying cool under pressure more than depth of knowledge. With its easy but varied challenges, The Floor ain't Jeopardy!, but it could better suit a broad age range of family members than a more intellectual show. An 8-year-old might be able to identify dog species more quickly than a 16-year-old can, for instance.
The contestants themselves range in age and background, representing a wide range of the U.S. population. A peppy addition to the trivia game show genre.
