Greatest Game Shows

The 100 Most Popular Game Shows
One question you almost certainly haven't been asking yourself is "What are the 100 most popular articles on this site?". Well, tough, because we have and you can see the result of our Greatest Game Shows - it lists stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to surprises such as Kate Thornton's Dishes. Who knew?

Bradley Walsh

While UKGameshows.com is (even if we say so ourselves) the most comprehensive guide to the genre anywhere on - or off - the web, with over 2100 programmes already in our database it is inevitable that even we're stumped sometimes. So we're asking for your help. A number of our "most wanted" shows are now listed here and a team of volunteers is standing by, waiting to add your contributions to our compendium of game show knowledge. Go on, help us out. It's what Mumsy would want.

Game show news

Bruce Forsyth
18 August Bruce Forsyth
The death has been announced of Bruce Forsyth at the age of 89. A TV regular for more than half a century, his many popular game shows included The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, The Price is Right and Strictly Come Dancing.

The Generation Game
23 July Baking the British Generation with a brand new Game Off
The BBC announced that they have commissioned a four episode run of 70s and 90s Saturday night hit The Generation Game with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins as hosts.

Weakest Link
19 July The Weakest Rethink
Reports in the press claim that The Weakest Link may return, and Anne Robinson could again host. According to these articles, a Children in Need special will air in November, with more celebrity editions in 2018. The BBC has not confirmed any of the claims.

Raven
27 June Flying Back
Raven is returning to our screens. New host, Aisha Toussaint, said "I used to dream of one day being a warrior contestant - I never for a second imagined that I'd one day be Raven.". The fantasy adventure show enchanted a generation of children in the last decade, and will swoop back to CBBC later this year.

Britain's Got Talent
31 May Britain's Got Talent Final Moves
The final of Britain's Got Talent has been moved to Saturday 3 June, from Sunday night. A concert for Manchester has been arranged for Sunday, raising funds after last week's bombing. To avoid distracting from this cause, the talent show final moves up to Saturday night.
