TV Series
    (March 16, 2006-August 1, 2007)
    Reality TV competition
    Contestants vie for cash and patent by showcasing their invention
    Host: Matt Gallant (season 1); Nick Smith (season 2)
    Judges: Sara Blakely (season 2), Pat Croce (season 2), Ed Evangelista (season 1), Doug Hall (season 1), Peter Jones, Mary Lou Quinlan (season 1)
    It is another American Idol knockoff. Only this time, the inventions do the 'talking.'
    It was produced by Simon Cowell.
    There are many invention competition programs like it such as 'Tycoon,' 'The Big Idea' and 'Dragon's Den' (also judged by Peter Jones).
    Some of the inventors give up everything (even go as far as giving up their families) to perfect their inventions!
    They changed judges after the first season.
    It follows the same Randy-Paula-Simon cliche, with Peter Jones acting as Simon.
    Simon Cowell was sued by the creators of the show 'Million Dollar Idea' for copying the premise of the show.
    The Guardian Angel, the winner in season 2, is controversial. A similar invention was used on The Tonight Show in 1993.
    It is fun to see the amazing and wacky ideas of ordinary people.
    It gives the chance for people to become entrepreneurs.
    Some of the inventions look very useful and productive.
    Many of the stories behind the creating of the inventions were inspiring.
    It has inspired other programs like it on TV.
    Mr. Wizard would probably be smiling in his grave right now.
