Poll of the Year 2017

Poll of the Year 2017 - THE RESULTS!
The people have spoken, and we can finally reveal the winners in the UKGameshows.com/Bother's Bar Poll of the Year 2017. Are fans of Y Cwis Mawreddog going to get the shock upset they've been dreaming of? No, frankly, they're not. But you can see the real winners by clicking here. Thanks to all involved - see you again next year.

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?

Don't Forget Your Toothbrush

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.
