Ten finalists compete to win a chance in the Hot Seat, where they attempt to navigate multiple-choice questions of increasing difficulty toward the ultimate $1 million prize.
The Deputy Mayor of New York City along with his quirky staff are constantly putting the spin on Mayor Randall Winston’s latest political gaffe. Usually a man who is calm and organized, he can “spin” out of control when it comes to his personal life.
