NBC plans to air 12-day, 24-hour competition show

NBC says it's planning a 12-day-long, around-the-clock competition show to air this fall.

The network said April 24 that the trivia-based game show, "The Million Second Quiz," will air live in prime time from a specially built studio in the heart of Manhattan. The hourglass-shaped complex will also serve as the living quarters of the four finalists.

When the 12 days -- or 1 million seconds -- draw to a close, the winner could claim a cash prize of as much as $10 million.

Viewers will be able to play along in real time and sync to the prime-time broadcast.

The network didn't announce a premiere date.

The Sambols say they learned that Andrew Wyeth passed away just a few hours after they purchased it on Jan. 16, 2009.
