Tonight on 7 ABC a new game show premieres called The Hustler. It breaks the mold with one player secretly knowing all the answers. Craig Ferguson host of the show talks with Mel Camp. Ferguson says the game show part of it is like a regular game show, some questions you’ll know the answers to and some you won’t but, what you do have to do is be able to read people to play the game. He says it is kind of like a detective game show. It’s like a who done it, like a murder mystery and a game show and a little bit of a reality show at the same time, because you’re looking at people and trying to figure out, who is the hustler. The hustler knows all the answers to the questions but is trying to conceal it from the other contestants.

Ferguson says it’s really interesting because what I think you realize is, you’re profiling people without knowing you’re doing it and most of the time you are wrong. Craig Ferguson said he doesn’t know who the hustler is when they are playing the game.

The Hustler premieres tonight right here on Channel 7 (ABC) at 10pm.
