A new show (As of February 2005) on Comedy Central, it's alright.
There was this one bit where the host would give the capital of a country, and the contestants would have to name the country...The tricky bit is after they buzzed in, they'd get a bottle smashed over their head.

Host: Madrid
Contestant: *buzz*
Man: *smashes bottle over head of contestant*
Contestant: Duhh...uhh...Italy...
