TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the seven days beginning 22 November 2008

Schedules are subject to change.

Highlights this week.

It's a very, very quiet week. Challenge gains Bob Monkhouse on Wipeout (11am and 2pm) and a new run of Ninja Warrior (6pm). Other than that, there's a lot of I'm a Celeb, many other shows continuing, and World's Strongest Man (Fri 8pm) begins on C5.
