TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 8 August 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

Can we tell that the television companies really, really aren't trying? How else can we explain the re-appearance of For the Rest of Your Life (ITV, 12.30 weekdays) two years after the last viewer dropped off to sleep? The only notable new shows this week are on foreign-language channels: the second series of 0 Ond 1 (S4C, 8.25 Friday), and La Carte aux Tresors drops in on Charente-Maritime (TV5, 1pm Wednesday).
