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 - now updated for 2022 and ranging from stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to, er, Man O Man. Who knew?

Interceptor

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.
