    Ryan Seacrest will host "The Million Second Quiz," a new live game show NBC hopes will become event programming for two weeks in September.

    The network said Monday it is constructing a giant hourglass-shaped structure in Manhattan for the game, which will involve contestants testing their trivia skills over a million seconds, or 11 days, 13 hours, 46 minutes and 40 seconds. A contestant leading the game earns $10 per second for sitting in the "money chair," with a potential payoff of millions of dollars.

    The show will air for six straight nights starting Sept. 9, then return for four nights starting Sept. 16.
