Greatest Game Shows

The 100 Most Popular Game Shows
One question you almost certainly haven't been asking yourself is "What are the 100 most popular articles on this site?". Well, tough, because we have and you can see the result of our Greatest Game Shows - now updated for 2022 and ranging from stalwarts like The Crystal Maze and Interceptor to, er, Man O Man. Who knew?


While is (even if we say so ourselves) the most comprehensive guide to the genre anywhere on - or off - the web, with over 2100 programmes already in our database it is inevitable that even we're stumped sometimes. So we're asking for your help. A number of our "most wanted" shows are now listed here and a team of volunteers is standing by, waiting to add your contributions to our compendium of game show knowledge. Go on, help us out. It's what Mumsy would want.

The BBC has delayed this week's Celebrity Race Across the World, originally scheduled for Wednesday 13 September.

18 August Millionaire to return next year
Who Wants to be a Millionaire? will return in early 2024. A series was recorded in February; originally intended for broadcast in 2023, scheduling conflicts with the men's Rugby World Cup meant there was no room that year, and a celebrity special was planned but cancelled due to host Jeremy Clarkson's offensive remarks about Meghan Markle.

18 August Another series? That is Riddiculous!
ITV have announced that they have commissioned a second series of Riddiculous. The new series will be filmed later in the year and will air in early 2024. Series 2 will consist of 25 episodes.
