I'm not sure about all of them, but I do know certain ones are rigged somewhat.
If you have ever watched Wheel of Fortune, the wheel is tension rigged. When contestants get too many letters and start getting greedy, the wheel
will almost ALWAYS turn against them. (Either lose a turn or bankrupt.) It's as if the producers indirectly say "wrap it up and solve it, or else"
Also Jeopordy seems a little rigged. The buzzer never seems to work properly. This is usually when someone is on a roll and answering all the
questions. IF, after a certain amount of time that person who was on a roll fails to buzz in, the other buzzers get a chance. The time delay is only
a matter of fractions of a second but to an astute observer, is quite noticeable. It's funny watching certain contestants get coronaries because
their buzzer isn't working properly lol.
I beleive these things are meant to dictate a better 'flow' of the game and more desirable to watch. Especially because they have to fit the game
into the allotted 22 minutes.
