I’m currently pitching a new game show to ABC called Charlie Sheen or Benjamin Franklin?

The game itself is quite easy to play – the host will describe actual situations, and the contestants simply need to guess who it pertains to – Charlie Sheen or Benjamin Franklin.

Sound easy? It’s not.

Take a look below, test your skill, and one day, you may be a contestant on Charlie Sheen or Benjamin Franklin?
