This Sweepstakes consists of two hundred sixty (260) individual daily non-connecting sweepstakes (each an “Individual Sweepstakes”) each corresponding to an episode of the Show. Each Individual Sweepstakes begins at 9:00 a.m. ET and ends the following day at 8:59 a.m. ET (each a “Daily Entry Period”) beginning Monday, September 11, 2023 and ending Saturday, September 7, 2024.

Entrants may check local TV listings for Show schedules in their local viewing area, which may be changed or pre-empted without notice in one or more broadcast areas (e.g. due to changes to the production schedule, special announcements, programs that may disrupt normal TV programming or local station programming pre-emptions). In these cases, at the election of the Show, the Sweepstakes may be played outside the above-stated dates, individual Shows and their corresponding call-to-action for the Sweepstakes may be aired on dates different than originally scheduled, or, the Sponsor may not re-broadcast that particular Show.
- Fan Fun: After each Individual Sweepstakes ends, episodes that are viewed after the 24 hour period or viewed on streaming services that contain the call-to-action QR code will re-direct viewers to a microsite (“Fan Microsite”) that is separate from the Sweepstakes Microsite. Once a viewer is at the Fan Microsite, he/she must follow the registration steps and correctly answer a question to earn points. Each correct answer earns ten (10) points. Incorrect answers will not result in any points for any participant. As fans continue to participate, by viewing more episodes, they will be served different Questions and accumulate points over time for the opportunity to earn Show-related items including, but not limited to, hats and t-shirts. Points have no monetary value, and a participant must abide by the terms and conditions of the Fan Microsite. Participation in the Fan Microsite will not result in a prize being awarded to a participant and is not required for entry into the Sweepstakes.
