A game show is a type of television program in which people play a game that involves answering questions or solving problems for money and/or prizes. On some shows contestants compete against other players or another team while other shows involve contestants playing alone for a good outcome or a high score. Game shows often reward players with prizes such as cash, trips and goods and services provided by the show's prize suppliers. Many television game shows descended from similar programs on radio.
Examples of game shows include Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, The Price is Right, and Deal or No Deal.

Internet Rot is when internet searches result in outdated and old information and pages.
Internet Rot examples on Urban Dictionary:

Obamanation: A complete desolation that will cover the United States should our nation be stupid enough to elect Barack Obama as our president.

George W. Bush: He's our current president.

As you can see, these definitions are outdated, and therefore are Internet Rot.

Another example of Internet Rot: Googling for 'make Firefox faster' mostly comes up with articles from 2004 regarding Firefox 1.0.
