Is there anything great here? No. Is it goofy fun? Yes.

The quality of each installment will hinge upon the guests that grace its slanted stage. Fortunately, future episodes promise a steady, sliding stream of stellar comedians from Jason Alexander to Cheryl Hines to Michael Ian Black.

The energy circulating in the in-the-round, Minute To Win It-style stage -- and overseen by eager-to-please TV personality Rove McManus -- must be electric. Unfortunately, it's also the type of energy that dies the moment it's committed to tape.

Riot has many of the genetic traits of a game show, and game shows should be for ordinary people, the way God intended, not for celebrities.

Some of the games produce better jokes than others. But jokes are only part of the point, which also may be to see an actor get messy or knocked about, or to watch him flail, or fail.

Landing Carell, obviously, and other assorted guests looks like something of a coup, but there's only so much star power can do to prop up a construct this slight.

Some viewers may not be willing to wait out the not-so-good moments to get to the funny stuff. But there is funny stuff to be found here, indeed.
