In just four months since its debut, "Let's Ask America" is gaining attention from new and growing audiences in Scripps markets, and also high praise from the industry's popular news blog site, Buzzerblog. Readers of the blog voted "Let's Ask America" as the top new game show of 2012.
"The show is just fun," wrote blogger Alex Davis. "It's not dark and suspenseful. There's no random outburst of luck. It's just people playing a game, joking around, and guessing answers to funny, provocative and entertaining questions."

The game show debuted as original programming in September 2012 in Scripps markets along with an infotainment program called "The List." The shows replaced longtime syndicated game shows, "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy." The new programming is competing well in their time periods, regularly matching or outperforming the audiences of established syndicated programs in markets like Tampa and Cleveland.
"The game is fun, challenging, gets you talking, and Kevin is great as host," added Davis. "They also, finally, got the interactive game show correct. The entire Skype element does add a very unique feel to the show not seen anywhere else. With 'Let's Ask America' you get a real cross section of the country – all ages, genders, and types are getting involved."
Kevin Pereira served recently as the host and creator of G4's "Attack of the Show" the network's flagship technology and entertainment live, daily series. Pereira launched a personal podcast in the fall of 2012.
