TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 16 September 2006

New and notable this week:

TMI, 9am Saturday, BBC2 and CBBC

The replacement for Dick 'n' Dom is hosted by Sam and Mark from Pop Idle II. Game show content is yet to be determined.

How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, BBC1, 6.45 and 9.15 Saturday.

It's the grand final; by 10 o'clock, we will know who will be Maria on a west end stage. At least for one day.

Saturday Night Takeaway, ITV, 7.45 Saturday.

Antan Dec's house party returns for the first series in eighteen months. Little Ant and Little Dec are back, New items include Beat The Boys, a racing challenge with Fern Cotton and Gopherman, The Jiggy Bank, and Hook A Duck. Poker Face was two months ago.

Quote... Unquote, Radio 4, 6.30 Monday.

Don't forget to miss it.

Trust Me I'm A Holiday Rep, 11pm weekdays, Channel 5

Moderate celebs (Noel from Hearsay, Nancy Lam, Rowland Rivron) gee unwilling holidaymakers into a life of hedonism. If you're visiting Crete this week, beware.

The Slammer, BBC1, 5pm Friday.

Four teams of comedians enter a jail. Only the funniest will win their freedom. Look, it's better than X-Factor.
