If you get a question wrong in Round 1, you walk with $1000.
Wow, no more zero dollars? So much for those zero dollar losers returning.
I don't even recall them doing that more than once, you know.  Aside from a two-day tournament late in Season 2 of prime-time, I don't think it was ever done again (but somebody else could feel free to correct me).
They did that a lot during the Regis era. I don't know about the Meredith era.

I guess they are a pretty uncommon thing.

i really don't like the new formats for many reasons.  of them:

I prefer the full hour shows.
Meredith SUCKS!
I enjoyed the fastest thinker questions.  They helped weed out the idiots.  (although some still got by)

Really, I only watch it anymore when I'm waiting for Jeopardy! to come on.

And I definitely remember the "returning contestants/zero dollar losers" from the Regis era.

Yeah, the Regis era had a $0 losers episode where $0 winners return for redemption. I'm not sure about the Meredith era though. I wouldn't think so since the "fastest thinker/finger question" part no longer exists.

But to make up for that, the auditions are more complex on the daytime version.  Back then, it was only a few questions you could answer over the phone.

Yeah, once Meredith showed up, there was no more fastest finger.

I actually think it would've been fine to bring back the $0 winners from the clock format.  Is it any wonder there were a lot more during those two seasons than any other portion of the show?

Oh, I sucked at it.  I never would've gotten on the show that way, so I'd rather get through with the auditions now. :P
