TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 23 September 2006

New and notable this week:

Everyone's a Winner, BBC1, 7.20 Saturday

In which Noel Edmonds and a bevy of famous faces celebrate the good work that the lottery does for the community, without once mentioning that 98% of plays are certain to lose.

QI, BBC2, 10pm Friday

Series four, and the questions this year all begin with the letter "D". What are they going to do in the year 2029, that's what we'd like to know.

Miss World, all week on Challenge.

It's certainly new, and notable if only so that viewers who want to miss it can miss it.
