TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 14 November 2009

Schedules are subject to change.

The major event of the week is I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! (ITV, from Sunday), another dozen minor celebs join Ant, Dec, and the sausages on the show. On Countdown (C4, 3.25 Monday), friend of UKGameshows Ryan Vickers will be appearing in the challenger's seat. Top comedy as I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue returns (Radio 4, 6.30 Monday), and Young Butcher of the Year (BBC3, 9pm Tuesday) will carve up all opposition. Raven reaches the end of the series (BBC1, 4.05 Thursday), Deal or No Deal comes to Ireland (TV3, 8pm Friday), and not only is there a regular edition of Mastermind on Friday, there's also a comedy edition supporting the annual Children in Need of Assistance appeal (BBC2, 10pm Friday).
