TV Guide This Week


A guide to game shows for the nine days commencing Saturday 21 October 2006

New and notable this week:

Raven Week (CBBC, 10am, 12 noon, 1.30pm, 3pm, 5.30pm weekdays)

Let us introduce the schedulers to the concept of "you can have too much of a good thing."

The Price is Right (ITV, 2pm, 5pm except Ulster)

Let us introduce the schedulers to the concept of "you can have too much of a so-so thing."

Take It or Leave It (Challenge, 8pm weeknights)

"Trivia show in which teams of two test their nerves, skill and knowledge for a 50,000 pound grand prize." - Challenge press blurb.

The Apprentice USA (BBC3, 7pm Tuesday - Thursday)


Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2, 10pm Thursday)

Simon Amstell is the regular host, and Anthea Turner has turned up.

Unanonemous (C4, 9pm Friday; S4C 10.30)

One of these nine people could win up to one million pounds. This is going to last eight weeks, so don't expect it to be won tonight.
