TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 9 September 2006

New and notable this week:

Princess Nikki, Saturday 9.55am, C4
When they told the twice-rejected Big Brother contestant that her efforts to gain employment would go out in the prestigious 10 o'clock slot, they didn't mean 10pm Friday...
Television's 50 Greatest Stars, Saturday 5.30, ITV
Remember when ITV made quality programmes that were the envy of the world? Bradley Walsh does, and he's going to remind us of those long-lost days.
The Match, Sunday 7pm, Sky Onc
Celebrities playing football. Hosted by Mark Durden-Smith; auditionees include Lee From Steps and Anthony From Last Year's Big Brother.
Face the Music, Sunday 9pm, BBC4
An episode from 1973; Joseph Cooper chairs, with Joyce Grenfell, Patrick Moore, and Robin Ray. Part of a Joyce Grenfell evening.
Celebrity Masterchef, weekdays 7pm, BBC1
Amongst those competing this week are Marie Helvin, Sheila Ferguson, and Isabella Hervey.
Mock the Week, Thursday 10pm, BBC2
A new series, with more untried comedians than before. Which explains why they've booked Clive Anderson and Gina Yashere.
