Aside from numerous actual continuity errors where the time jumps around out of sequence, most of the shots where the the "SBI JumboTron" is seen show the Knables' bar graph out of sync with the countdown clock. The X-axis graph is numbered 1-24, referencing the 24 hours of each contract, with two segments per hour (48 segments total). The Knables' first show is "You Can't Win", which according to the countdown clock is about an hour show. At the end of the show after the "final question", the graph is shown with segment 4 just lighting up (2 hours in), as the countdown clock is shown hitting 23:00:00 (1 hour in). In the next scene, the graph can be seen with one segment lit, and the countdown clock is at 23:45:xx. The next show they go to is the wrestling match, and at the end of that the clock is shown hitting 22:30:xx, as a 5th segment fills in (should be 3). The next time it is shown is with 15:00:xx remaining (7 hours in), but the graph is now up to 17 (indicating 8 1/2 hours in). Next time after that is shown with 10 hours remaining (14 hours in), but now there are 25 segments lit (12 1/2 hours in). Next is at 6:30:xx (17 1/2 hours in), with 36 segments (18 hours in). After this, only the countdown clock is shown at various intervals until it hits 0:00:00 and then the graph is shown with all 48 segments lit.
