It's an entertaining holiday staple, but will the white elephant game work as a high-dollar game show?

NBC announced today that the network has ordered seven episodes of Howie Mandel's White Elephant, a game show in which contestants play the traditional holiday gift-exchange game, but with high-value presents. The competitor stuck with the lowest-value gift at the end of each round gets eliminated.

Deal or No Deal's Howie Mandel will host the series.

Sounds fun to play, but will it be fun to watch?
