TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 25 April 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

A quiet week for new shows: Golden Balls (5pm weekdays, not STV) heralds a new line-up for ITV daytimes, and UKTV Dave has a Numberwang Night (from 9pm Saturday). When Celebrity Are You Smarter Than A Ten-Year Old? (The Satellite Channel, 8pm Wednesday) makes this highlights list, we're at the bottom of the barrel.
