TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 17 March 2007

Schedules are subject to change.

New and notable

A Song for Europe (BBC1, 7.30 and 9.30 Saturday)

Finding the performers to finish a valiant 17th in Helsinki.

Soapstar Superchef (ITV, 5pm weekdays)

Combining ITV's twin obsessions of cookery and soap opera. Expect a premium-rate element to be inserted with all the subtlety of a door being opened by a sledgehammer.

Counterpoint (Radio 4, 1.30 Monday)

Edward Seckerson, scandalously dumped by Radio 3, is the guest host of the music quiz.

Gladiators (FTN, 7pm from Tuesday)

The most important game show to come out of Birmingham since The Golden Shot.

The Underdog Show (BBC2, 8pm Tuesday)

Celebrities adopt a dog, and hope to turn it into a Best In Show. One dog is voted off each week, and Julian Clary hosts. Look, we're not making this up, honest.
