When will be The Chair (US) next episode air date? Is The Chair (US) renewed or cancelled? Where to countdown The Chair (US) air dates? Is The Chair (US) worth watching?

Hosted by John McEnroe this quiz/game show saw contestants previously having had their resting heart rate determined through a lengthy screening. Once in the Chair, they are spotted with a $5,000 stake and advised of their target heart rate (which starts at 160% of the rest rate and decreases 5% for each question.) Seven questions are offered, with values of $5K, $10K, $15K, $25K, $40K, $50K, and $100K. The contestant may not answer if their heart rate exceeds the target; in that case, they lose money for each second of hyper-tension ($100/second for the first 2 questions, $200 for #3, $300 for #4 and so on.) In addition, the player faces two randomly placed "heartstoppers" - surprises designed to tense them up; the same money-losing rules apply. The game ends when the player runs out of money or misses a question. The contestant gets a chance to "stabilize" their pot after Q#3 (and #5); by doing so, they guarantee themselves that much if they miss a question - but they can still drop below that amount during heart penalties.
