TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 24 October 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

Food fans will be pleased to learn that BBC2 has new shows, Restaurant In Your Home (8.30 Monday, which may or may not be a game show) and The Restaurant (8pm Thursday). Channel 5 fans - there must be some out there - will be pleased to hear of new show Britain's Best Brain (8pm Wednesday) and the return of The What in the World? Quiz (Friday 7.30). Pen Campau is also back, with a catch-up on last year's winners (S4C, 6.30 Wednesday) and The Apprentice Us arrives on these shores a mere four years after the fact (BBC1, 11.20 Monday night).
