DESCRIPTION:
(from Comedy Central's web site) Now that it's hip to say you have attention deficit disorder, Distraction is the game show the world demands. Four contestants compete to answer general knowledge questions while being distracted by anything from peeing on demand to watching their moms get electrocuted to being thrown around by a wrestler. What, like you wouldn't do any of that for fabulous prizes? Distraction is hosted by Jimmy Carr, who proudly continues the British tradition of humiliating contestants.
