Poll of the Year 2014 - THE RESULTS ARE IN!
You've sent in your votes and it's been a record breaking year - thanks very much for that. What did you think were the best and worst new shows of the last year? It's time to find out.

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?

Dale Winton

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

The Voice UK
23 November 2015 ITV Finds its Voice
ITV have confirmed they have signed a deal to broadcast The Voice UK from 2017. The three-year deal, worth a reported £50m, will also see the broadcaster air two series of The Voice Kids, as well as spin-off programmes on ITV2. The programme will air its fifth and final series on the BBC in January.

Eurovision Song Contest
17 November 2015 Good evening. This is Canberra calling. Again.
The European Broadcasting Union has announced that Australia will compete in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. The country was given a one-off wildcard entry to the 2015 event to mark the contest's 60th anniversary. Following positive feedback, the Antipodean country will compete again in Stockholm, Sweden in May. They will however not be granted a pass to the final, and will have to take part in one of the semi-finals to secure their place in the grand final.

The Voice UK
7 November 2015 The BBC Loses its Voice
The BBC has confirmed that The Voice UK has been poached by another broadcaster, and the upcoming series will be the last to be broadcast by the corporation. The series has aired on the BBC since 2012, and will return in January for its fifth series, with new judges Paloma Faith and Boy George. The identity of the new broadcaster has yet to be revealed.

Mock the Week
19 October The points DON'T go to Andy
Andy Parsons has announced he is quitting Mock the Week after becoming a regular panelist on the show since 2006. He will be focusing on his future live stand-up tours and his new podcast.

14 October N for Sandi Toksvig
QI is to get a new host. Stephen Fry is leaving "one of the best jobs on television" after the M-series ends in early 2016. Sandi Toksvig will take over from next year, taking viewers through from N to an unknown destination. "Who knows what lies ahead? It should all be quite interesting." Alan Davies remains on the panel to the end of the alphabet - and beyond?
