The game show Cash Cab

I figured out why I like Cash Cab … There is no studio audience to yell, scream, and applaud on cue.


I watch that show sometimes. I can never answer the questions though.

“Schizophrenia is filmed in front of a live studio audience. And this program was made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and by contributions to your PBS station from Viewers Like You. Thank you.”


i think only the beginning and ending they are directed what to do. as far as the questions and the ride itself…i dont think its scripted. though i realized a couple of times he took the longer ways to get to destinations and prolly on purpose. I guess for the players and himself he wanted to drag the game longer. When i worked i would get asked sometimes if I was the cash cab. i always responded “no, this cab NEEDS Cash”. Reason why i say it may be directed, is cause your a foo if u flash even a couple of hundred in public like that. It seems that most of them do it, and apparently some of them are Nyers also. i can understand tourists, but its a bad move to do that.


I haven’t seen that show in a long time. But I used to watch it with the wife.

They are still making new ones?

They do have security I bet because some of the cameras are outside and from behind in traffic while the cab is driving. So I’m assuming this yeah.

Uber and Lyft would probably benefit if they did something like this. Would probably need to do so in their self driving cars though.
