Initial for ITV, 14 November 2016 to present


Teams try to complete top ten lists, with a possible prize of £125,000.

The ITV Press Office describes it thus:

Teams of five friends, family members or colleagues take it in turns to build up the prize pot solo by filling in the blanks of a 'top ten' list on any number of general knowledge subjects. If a player gives five or more correct answers, they add money to the team prize fund and secure their place in the final. The more answers they give after that, the more money they bank. If they get a perfect 10, they add £25,000, making the potential jackpot £125,000.
Players each get one 'life' allowing them to give an incorrect answer, but a second mistake will see them eliminated, their winnings wiped from the bank and themselves excluded from the final round. Across the game, the team have three 'nominates'. If a player is stuck for an answer, they can nominate a team member to provide an answer for them. If a player gives an answer the team captain deems incorrect, they can overrule it and replace it with one of their own - but only once per round.
One by one, players are faced with this daunting task until they reach the final, at which stage the remaining team members come together to face one last board. However, unlike previous rounds, they must find all ten answers to go home with the prize money.

Sounds like a cross between Who Dares Wins and Topranko!, with more than a nod to Decimate.

The show's working title was Tower of Ten.

Aired at 3pm, between Judge Rinder and Tipping Point. Its immediate predecessor was Rebound. Late episodes of Deal or No Deal were showing on Channel 4, and Escape to the Country on BBC1.

Yes, we know the show's title is linguistic nonsense. "Ten" comes from the Old English "tien", and lexicographers trace it back to the Sanskrit dasa, Greek deka, and Latin decem. "Tenable" has a completely different root - it's from French "tenir" and Latin "tenere", to hold.
