The first half of the game is like the original show, and the player with the most money in their bank keeps it and plays the Big Bucks Bonus Round for $1 million! More on that later.

ROUND 1: Three questions each worth 3 spins on the Big Board for a correct buzz-in answer, and 1 spin for a correct multiple choice answer.

Q1: Slim Shady is the alter ego of rapper Eminem...
STEVEY: Slim Shady
Q1: ...but who has used the alter ego of "Sahsa Fierce": Slim Shady, Rihanna or Beyonce?
SAM: Beyonce
DEBBIE: Beyonce

DEBBIE: Tiffany's
Q3: Is it Tiffany's, Zales or Harry Winston?
SAM: Tiffany's
STEVEY: Tiffany's
ANSWER: Tiffany's

SPIN ROUND: The spins you earn go to the Big Board, where every time you STOP! the board, you get cash, prizes, or the dreaded WHAMMY. Land on money or a prize, the value is added to the bank. Land on money & a spin, you get a free spin. Land on a Whammy, you lose everything. Four Whammies puts you out of the game, and you can pass your spins (which MUST be taken) if you have a fear of the Whammy, which is important, because the player with the most in their bank will have the advantage of spinning last in the next round.
SAM: 5

STEVEY spins Shuffleboard ($4995), $1400 = $6395
SAM spins $1750+SPIN, GO BACK 2 ($3000!), $2150, $2000, PASS to STEVEY = $8900

DEBBIE spins (passed) PICK A CORNER: $5000/$2000+SPIN/Gucci Collection (Gucci Collection - $9315), WHAMMY (Order Chef) {1 SPIN Earned},.....$4000 = $4000

STEVEY won a shuffleboard table worth $4995.  Combined with the $17,050 in cash he won gives him a grand total of $22,045!  He keeps that no matter what.

Now Stevey plays the new PYL Big Bucks Bonus Game for up to ONE MILLION DOLLARS.  He has six rounds of spins with the Big Board where the money keeps growing each round up to a maximum of $100,000 for a spin, and he can even win prizes just for him, his hubby and their newborn baby.  If he gets to $500,000 or more, it's augmented to $1 million!  Whammies are still in play and four Whammies end the game with nothing.  Stevey can quit at the end of each round.

BIG BUCKS ROUND 1 (5 SPINs): $10,000!, $4000, Baby Stuff (diapers et. al. for 3 years, $5172), $3000, $3250 = $25,422

BIG BUCKS ROUND 3 (3 SPINs): $25,000!, $4500, $2500+SPIN, $3000 = $40,100 [1 W]

Stevey quits.  He's won a shuffleboard table and the Cherokee.  Those prizes total $38,790.  Combined with the $32,050 in cash he's won, that gives him a grand total of $70,840!  CONGRATULATIONS!!

"Press Your Luck" premieres tomorrow at its regularly scheduled time.

NBC: 8p/7c
Host: Terry Crews with Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Howie Mandel & Gabrielle Union

After Joseph Allen got a Golden Buzzer last week, the search for the next million dollar act continues. Welcome to week 3...

Marina Mazepa (21; orig. Ukraine) is a dancer who moved to LA to fulfill her dream of being a dancer. She starts with ballet... and ends up going contemporary with a hint of contortionism. Simon was speechless, but he eventually comes through with a yes to join the other three.

Dom Chambers (26; orig. Australia) wants to follow in the footsteps of many a magician on AGT, but he also has a legacy to live up to - his grandfather was a magician. He pulls a couple of beers out of a bag, a bottle of wine out of thin air, and another beer from his shoe. After getting the judges dreadfully sauced, he gets four yeses for his comic magic routine!

Carmen Carter (55) spent her life as a background singer. Now she's in the limelight with a cover of INXS' "Never Tear Us Apart". She brings the house down as the judges can't get enough of her. Gabrielle calls her voice "a gift and a blessing". Julianne says that no one will forget her name. Howie can't believe that it took her this long to come out on stage. Simon said it was "amazing". They say YES!

Dupla o Tempo (54, 84), a duo of Edson & Leon, come from Brazil to do some body balancing. It's something that we've seen before, but never this... complex or mature. Julianne compares Leon (84) to the old man from "Up". Simon delivers the trope: "This was a surprise. It was exactly why we created this show, to find people like you. This was genuinely one of my favorite acts.".

Sethward the Caterpillar () returns from last season - and NUMEROUS appearances on "The Gong Show" as Sethward the Giraffe. Same song, same chorus of buzzers. Terry, clean up this mess, please... and here's a bit of Little Sethward. A few acts later... Sethward the Walrus. Same song, same chorus of buzzers. But then Howie and Simon said yes. Why? Because reasons. Gabrielle keeps her buzz... and so does Julianne. Well, there's always next year.

Charlotte Summers (13; Marbella, Spain) is a huge fan of Simon, so she's nervous about her "I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins. She sounds like a miniature Amy Winehouse. Simon wants her to drop the backing vocal next time (and there will be anext time because she's through!).

After more nerves, Kevin Schwartz (Madison, WI) is next, trying to shake a bad touch of agoraphobia. He managed to do that through comedy, clowning on himself a la Mitch Hedberg. The judges, once they got into it, give him a pass. Howie: "I can see that you were really nervous, but you were so wonderful. I love you and welcome out of the house."

Singing success has been hard to come by, and MacKenzie () is hoping to turn the tide with his take on "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor. Gabrielle is crying. Simon is smirking. And the rest of the panel is in agreement - they want more of him!

Next up, dancers are performing in front of Julianne, making THEM nervous. Yuriyan Retriever () is nervous to perform in front of her as she blends comedy and dance. Simon buzzed. So did she. So did the others. So yeah... she happened.

Michael Paul (Philadelphia) is an exotic bird trainer with his friend Willy... a puppet. So he's not a bird trainer, he's a ventriloquist. The judges liked him, so he's through.

Finally, we have Tyler Butler-Figueroa (11), who has been playing the violin since he was 7 as a way of combating his bullying due to leukemia. His cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" suits him to a T, and Simon, because no one's going to stop the boss, delivers this: "We hear too many stories about people being bullied and I can tell you one thing: most people are bullied because they're better than the people who bully them. I think you have such an amazing talent, such a personality, and I would like to say something on your behalf to the bullies."... GOLDEN BUZZER... even though it was painfully obvious that he was going to go through anyway.

More auditions next time.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader

Nick: 7p/6c
Host: John Cena

bird, new, square, twitter iconInstagram

Today's new student is a nun (yes, a nun) & Catholic school from Sacred Heart School in Sauk Rapids, MN, Sister Mary Jo! Joining Chloe, Cooper, Jamil & Nick in the class is Quinne.

FRONT GAME: 1st Grade Music, 2nd Grade Life Science, 3rd Grade Spelling, 3rd Grade US History, 4th Grade Grammar, 4th Grade Chemistry

Sister Mary Jo passes the 1st grade, but misses the 2nd in Life Science when she doesn't know that the "photo" in photosynthesis means "light". She also misses the first 3rd grade question when she doesn't know the other state (besides Mississippi) that has 3 pairs of side-by-side double letters in its name (Tennessee). She wants to COPY Chloe on this in US History: Coined by John O'Sullivan in 1845, the believe that it was the right of the US to expand across North America was know by what two-word phrase? The correct answer is "Manifest destiny". Chloe said... MANIFEST DESTINY! She misses the 4th grade grammar question on where the adverb was (sometimes). She uses her PEEK on this in Chemistry - Pick the ingredient you can add to vinegar to make a chemical reaction that produces carbon dioxide gas: a) NaCl b) NaHCO3 c) C12H22O11. Cooper has NaHCO3. She'll go with that.... and they're right for a total of $1000.

5th GRADE FINAL EXAM (Nick): US Geography, Animal Science, World Geography, Measurements, Ancient History.

- US Geography: From the center of the Four Corners Monument, if you walk a mile directly southeast, what US state are you in?: VERMONT (New Mexico)
- Animal Science: What vertebrate group took its name from the Greek for "living a double life"?: INVERTEBRATE (Amphibian)
- World Geography: Slovenia or Slovakia, which country's capital city is Bratislava?: FINAL CHEAT
- Measurements: 24 pints of paint is equal to how many gallons? 6 (4)
- Ancient History: What Roman general born in 2nd century BC was credited wtih saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered"?: NERO (Julius Caesar)

Back to Q3, where Nick goes with Slovakia... and she's right for double her money, $2000. But it's no $100,000, so...

"My name is Sister Mary Jo, and I may be a Catholic school teacher, but I'm not smarter than a 5th grader."

Martin starts with $200 Recent Cinema of the Past. Terri finds the Daily Double under $800 Keep Your Places Straight. She goes for $600 on this: "We are here" in this city--but the one with a U. of Louisiana campus, or the seat of Tippecanoe County, Indiana? "What is... Tulane?" No, it was Lafayette, dropping her to -$200. She recovers to $2600 to Martin's $6800. Dan, on $2200, gets the board to start...

.. with $400 What Happened?. Martin finds the first Daily Double under $1200 Litarery Green Thumb. He bets $4200 of his $10,800 on this: in "Through the Looking-Glass", Alice meets a talking one of thse players, also a character's name in "Peter Pan". "What is a tiger lily?" RIGHT for $15,000! Dan gets the last clue under $800 Business. He wagers $8000 on this: almost a decade after a big spill, it's the biggest company by revenue that's headquartered in England. "What is BP?" RIGHT to end the round wtih $20,600 to $20,200 for Martin. Terri can spoil with $5000.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Landmarks": poet Rabindranath Tagore compared this landmark to a teardrop glistening on the cheek of time. Correct response: what is the Taj Mahal?

Everyone's right as Dan wins $40,600. Martin leaves wtih $37,601.

It's a 4N stay at the Wickaninnish Inn in British Columbia worth $8,203!

Olivia the Dumpster Fire gets a mind reading clue about the Big Box Prize - IF THE TRADER DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY WITH THE BIG BOX PRIZE - I WILL. Will she keep that or take the LMAD Envelope?

If he can match all the numbered die before the 2 zonks, we will also add this - a $20,645 VW Jetta! His first pick is 4 and it is a 5. Next is 3 and it's the first ZONK. He passes on $200 to pick 8 which is...the other 5. He has $500 and plays on with 5. It is the 4. Next is 1. It's the other 4. He has $900. James can stop if he wants to.

Who trades for a shot at $22,562? It goes all the way down to Kevin and his scooter!

He picks 2. 3 was a new Sea-Doo Spark worth $7,399. Kevin wins a new dining room from Furniture Town Plus worth $3,100. 1 was the Big Deal and it was a TWO TRIP deal. It started with a 6N stay at the Naia resort in Belize THEN he would have gone to THAILAND at 2 Avani Hotels! We also would have thrown in luggage worth $22,562!

On today's show, we have three players whose student debts are keeping them from getting married. Who'll find their happily ever after tonight?

ROUND 1: Censors#*t, House of Worship and/or Pancakes, Stolen Goods

The I Knew That! was under the second question in House of Worship and/or Pancakes. The question: what Jewish ceremony commemorates a 13-year-old boy's passage into adulthood? McKenzie goes to $400 by naming "bar mitzvah". That's doubled to $800 to tie Michael. Cristian has $200.

ROUND 2: McKenzie cashes in her I Knew That to go to $1100.... but thanks to a pair of rallies, Cristian and Michael are tied at $1400 to end the round. McKenzie heads to the Direct-to-Congress Round-Up Booth, her winning rounded up to $2000.

ROUND 3: The options are QUACK QUACK OR MOVIE SNACK and IT'S A MAN OR IT'S A WHO. the sound distractors are ... a half-remembered "Here Comes the Bride" and a horse giving a wedding toast.
- Michael buzzes in and ???, giving Cristian IT'S A MAN (characters from "Mario Bros.") or IT'S A WHO (characters from Dr. Seuss) and a horse wedding toast. HE gets four for $1600, $3000 total.
- Michael ends up with QUACK QUACK (types of duck) or MOVIE SNACK (self-explanator) and a half-assed "Here Comes the Bride", getting eight for $3200, $4600 total.

FINAL ROUND: Each of these answers will be...

Michael dances to the win, $7400 to $3000!

(DON'T) KNOW YOUR MAJOR: Michael goes with DON'T KNOW, getting all eight for his happily ever after as he's PAID OFF!

LIVE LIGHTNING ROUND: Michael has 3 minutes to quiz people on the episode that just aired. Each correct answer is worth $1000!
- David; Akron, OH - 2/3 for $2000
- Edward; Heinlein, NY - 3/3 for $3000
- Natalie; Pennsylvania - 3/3 for $3000

This week, the judges are joined by country phenom Kelsea Ballerini.

The rules are simple. Each writer will bring their song into Songland to perform for the panel. At the end, the artist du jour will choose one song to record. That song will be available for purchase at the end of the show.

- Jack Newsome (Rumson, NJ): he looks like Justin Bieber. He was in a boy band growing up. His song is a break-up bop, "Lying (Next to You)".
- Jess Jocoy (Seattle) was a singer before she moved to Nashville, where everyone's a singer, everyone plays the guitar, and everyone wants to make it. Her song encapsulates the experience in "Easy", a song about friends warning you about that one.
- Daniel Feels (Herndon, VA)... real name Dan Goldberger... has a crush. He wrote about it in "Crush".
- Darius Coleman (Philadelphia): "Better Luck Next Time" is about a girl he knows that was cheated on.

The panel will now take THREE writers into the studio to work with them. Those three: Daniel, Jack, and Darius. After pow-wowing with the panel, they'll perform their songs one more time.

WINNER: DARIUS! Kelsea's rendition of "Better Luck Next Time" will be available for stream by the time you read this wherever you stream music.
