For fans of Pawn Stars, Pawnography starts tonight on History Channel

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment...s-pawnography/

The trio’s new show features the core “Pawn Stars” cast minus Harrison’s dad, a.k.a. “The Old Man.” It pits contestants up against the reality stars and gives them a chance to win items from Harrison’s personal prized collection from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

“It’s general trivia questions, most are historical,” he explained. “The tag line is ‘it’s the only game show where we don’t want you to win.’

I wonder how Ben Stein felt about Win Ben Stein's Money.

Only watched 15 minutes of second episode. Fastest amount of time creating then deleting Season Pass.

I know there's a lot of competition out there, but this could be the worst show on TV.

The host did NOT seem to want to be there, especially when Rick "chimed in" with additional facts.

This show was pretty terrible.

The promo didn't look promising and the show lived up to that! I'm a little shocked at how bad this was. I look forward to never seeing it again.

Now I have to record a few!

I passed on it based on the commercials and my prior knowledge of the guys ability to act.

You guys have talked me into watching in a can't look away from the train wreck kind of way.

It was a real train wreck. Can't believe anyone looked at this and chose to air it.

I didn't even bother to watch, after looking at posts here looks like I made right decision.

I'm a big fan of Pawn Stars, but I can't remember the last time I saw a show stink so much as Pawnography.

I agree. The pacing was horrible, and Corey/Chum didn't seem to want to be there at all.

I guess that shows that they're not as dumb as they look.

LOL, I haven't watched yet, but really looking forward to it now.

As a side note, I've met Christopher Titus a couple of times and saw his stand up show several times in the late 80's as he dated my college room-mates sister.

The only way I would watch this show again is if I was on it. And I don't think it will last enough even to apply.

I liked the negotiation at the end for the prize. Otherwise it's just another trivia game show.

The questions seemed off somehow. I guess they aren't using the same question writers as Jeopardy.

We caught the end of an episode last night. Probably wouldn't have given it a second thought but for the fact that Titus was the host. We loved his stand up and watched every episode of his show. Stacy Keach was awfully awesome as that dad on that

Yes, I enjoyed that show too.

I finally watched the first two episodes. Unbelievably bad ---- but I'll probably keep watching, as I'm a sucker for trivia type shows.

Terrible show. Struggled through first episode, Havent watched since. Cory and Chum acted dumber than usual (esp. Chum) I hope he is putting on acting dumb.And Rick is not as smart as he acts. The show was pathetic. I know Pawn Stars was scripted but for some reason I liked it. The old man, Cory and Rick and Chum dum. It was theater. Like wrestling.

I'm not one to easily pull the trigger on an SP, but this was just AWFUL! I had four eps recorded before I decided to give it a look. Those and the SP are nuked. I can't stand to waste that much time watching something with absolutely no entertainment value.
