TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 11 July 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

The BBC's big new Saturday night quiz is Guesstimation (8pm, BBC1). ITV's riposte is The Fuse (5pm weekdays), only for the Beeb to fight back with As Seen On TV (BBC1, 8.30 Friday). The intelligent channels are bemused by this populism; Radio 4 remembers Kit Williams' "Masquerade" (Tuesday 11.30am) and BBC4 strikes out with a second series of Only Connect (Monday 8.30). Oh, and BBC2 offers Dragons' Den (9pm Wednesday) while S4C brings us the [[Llangollen Cor y Byd|Llangollen Choir of the World contest (8.10 Saturday).
