2100Mor4 The Secret Millionaire


0100Mor4 Countdown (not Mo)Well, they kept that quiet (1). Channel 4 has received nine letters complaining about the removal of Countdown from More4. People thinks it's SLOBLOCKS. Here it is, back in a very viewer-friendly slot, and a simple repeat of the episode seen on C4 that day, and repeated two days and five hours later.

1630BBC2 Ready Steady Cook
1700CBBC RavenWell, they kept that quiet (2). The Sixth Tournament began, er, last week. Such has been the lack of promotion for the new series, and the way CBBC has been running Raven every day, that we completely missed it.

1530 C4 CountdownThis week's Smart Aleck is Ann Widdecombe, who only has to do one show because the rest are cancelled for horse-racing. Repeat at 0510 Thursday morning, though there are More4 repeats through the week. This makes no sense.
