"Power of 10" launches online component


Viewers will be able to test their knowledge of how America thinks from the comfort of their own homes by logging onto cbs.com/powerof10 and answering poll questions similar to those from Power of 10.  Like the primetime game show on CBS, online players must accurately predict the American public's response to intriguing poll questions, and those who are successful may qualify to be considered as a contestant on the primetime show.

Players will be asked 10 questions where they must choose a specific percentage as their answer for each question.  Depending on the difference between the correct answer and the answer given, players will be awarded the difference between the numbers in points. For example, if the player guesses 67% as an answer, and the correct answer is 70%, they will be given three points. The goal is to finish with the lowest number of points.

Each online game will have a six hour window.  Therefore, game play will be open from 5:59 PM to 11:59 PM (PT) and 8:59 PM to 2:59 AM (ET) once a week on 8/8, 8/15 and 8/22. Players will be notified via email of their score within 24 hours of the game's end. Players will also be notified if their score qualifies them for a potential appearance on the primetime game show.  Each game can be played only one time, however, viewers can return the following week to play the next game on the scheduled Wednesday release date.
