Million Dollar Mile is an obstacle course competition television series that premiered on March 27, 2019, on CBS. Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow as the host, with Matt "Money" Smith and Maria Taylor as co-hosts, and NBA superstar LeBron James as an executive producer. The course will shut down the streets of Los Angeles, while contestants running it will have the opportunity to win $1,000,000 every time they complete it. The contestants will have to overcome various obstacles along the course, including a group of elite athletes whose goal is to stop them from winning the prize money.
After just two episodes with "lacklustre ratings," CBS moved the show from its Wednesday slot after Survivor to Saturday nights. The network filled the show's time slot with a repeat episode of NCIS, and moved up the premiere date of season 31 of The Amazing Race.
After a contestant completes an obstacle, they earn a level of prize money. However, they are not guaranteed that money until they successfully exit the course. Contestants who complete three obstacles are automatically guaranteed $50,000 regardless of whether they finish or not.
