Cash Cab Discovery The stakes are not especially high on "Cash Cab" -- even the biggest winners don't walk away with much more than $2,000, and at worst all the losers face is a longer walk to their destination. But that's part of goofy charm of the show -- which, as host Ben Bailey explains to all his passengers, is "a TV game show that takes place right here in my taxi." Bailey is an amusing and affable host, and the idea that over the course of a cab ride, you can win enough money to pay for the drinks or dinner you're about to have makes for a very pleasant way to spend a half-hour.
