TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows broadcast in the UK and Ireland for the week beginning 7 August 2010

Schedules are subject to change.

It's ten years since The Weakest Link burst onto the screens of an unsuspecting nation, and there will be selected repeats at 5.15 all week, beginning with the very first episode. Two new cookery shows on daytime telly: Instant Restaurant (BBC2, 2.15 weekdays) and Dinner Date (ITV, 12.30 weekdays) do pretty much what they say on the tin. Early morning television is livened up by Buzz and Tell (BBC2, 7.30 weekdays).
