TV Guide 2015-07-11

Lots of new shows this week. King of the Nerds (Sky One, Sun) is the Sunday service. The Link (BBC1), Fifteen-to-One (C4), and Two Tribes (BBC2) bring something to daytimes. University Challenge and Only Connect (BBC2, Mon) get the brain juices flowing, in time for Hive Minds (BBC4, Tue). More good news for intelligent television: Celebrity Love Island (ITV2, Wed) and Big Brother (C5, Thu) come to an end. There's also a new run of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue (Radio 4, Mon) and we can miss America's Got Talent (Tru TV, Wed).
