Trivial Punishment

What do you think game show audience members would do if they could shock a contestant when he answers questions incorrectly? As reported by MPR in March this year, a French television station created a mock game show to answer this question. One would think that the Milgram experiments provided sufficient evidence of what someone would do when given the opportunity to shock another person for trivial reasons, but what's going to produce higher ratings than broadcasting someone being shocked to 'death' with 460 volts of electricity? Probably not much. Read the story from MPR, here.
