Game Time: Double Dare 2000 (2000)

Seven years had passed since Nickelodeon cancelled Double Dare and its clones. At the turn of the millenium, the series was brought back, but Double Dare 2000, which basically was a reboot of Family Double Dare, lasted just 1 season.

Original host Marc Summers had moved on, so comedian Jason Harris was brought in as the new host. As before, the show combines elements of common quizzes, with a heapin' helpin' of Beat The Clock, though sources also cite the Ideal game, Mouse Trap, as an influence.

Here's a sample clip:

Why bring this up? Because, like Clarissa Explains it All, Double Dare is being brought back by Nick, set to air later this summer. No host has yet been announced as of press time.

Rating: A.
