(In the pipeline: I hope to catch Growing Pains over the weekend. Mend It for Money wasn't game in the pilot last year, the story is about the restoration not the bidding.)

Poll of the Year 2020

Poll of the Year 2020 - Results Sunday!
It's been a challenging year for all, especially for TV production. And you've told us who coped with it best in our annual Poll of the Year!


Impact of Covid-19

Impact of Covid-19
The Covid-19 pandemic has turned everything upside down, and the world of game shows is no exception, so we now have a dedicated page to keep tabs on the shows affected. Do give us a shout if you know of something we've missed.

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?

Raven

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

Mastermind
22 March Myriemind
Clive Myrie has been announced as the new host of Mastermind. He will take over from John Humphrys when the new series begins later this year.

Eggheads
12 March Can nobody poach these Eggheads?
Eggheads has been commissioned for a 40 episode run on Channel 5, to air later this year. Both Jeremy Vine and the Eggheads will transfer.

Weakest Link
15 February Who thinks a conundrum is a musical instrument?
Anne Robinson has been announced as the host of Countdown. She will replace Nick Hewer who leaves the show later this year. She will be the second female host of the show, following Katherine Ryan hosting an edition of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown in 2018.

Mastermind
6 February He's started so... oh, you know the rest
John Humphrys has announced he is stepping down from Mastermind at the end of the current series, having hosted the quiz since 2003. His successor, should there be one, is yet to be announced.

Britain's Got Talent
29 January Britain's Got Ailment
It has been announced that no series of Britain's Got Talent will air in 2021 due to the continued health crisis. Filming had been due to start this month, but had been delayed three weeks ago; the previous series included a pause between broadcast of the auditions and finals, and filming of the Christmas special had to be delayed due to at least three crew members testing positive. If we interpret the press release correctly, Britain's Got Talent is not prepared to sacrifice scale or its participants' health. You can read more about the effects of Covid-19 on game shows here.
