Questions are posed, dancers dance and money is given away. If anybody can pull off such a cheese fest, it will be The Shat but it looks and sounds lame. It is like the networks are in a race to come up with the worst game show ever and each one keeps outdoing the others. In series premiere news 3 LBS. debuts tonight on CBS.
