I’d go the other way.  Borrow the rule from soccer that limits player substitutions.  Each team gets 5 subs from the starting lineup.  Can’t run out of pitchers if you can’t replace the ones getting lit up like a skyscraper in a thunderstorm.

Watching in Toronto, the line “Where did you think we were, Toronto?” got cheers. Was this an inside joke for how many things are filmed here representing US cities, or was it a regional throw in, and viewers in England, Australia, or California heard “London”, “Sydney”, or “Los Angeles”?

New Zealand can produce a version, even if they’re only giving out NZD 50,000. Israel got Rupert to show up for theirs. Australia offers two episodes a week, so you can see all the actual social life and tribal politics play out on screen. Read more
