TV Guide 2015-01-31

Shipping Wars (C4, 4pm weekdays) causes a raft of schedule changes, most notably pushing Deal or No Deal opposite Tipping Point at 3. Channel 4 also gives us The Jump (from Sun) and ITV2 pushes Reality Bites (Thu), a panel game with Matt Edmondson and not a movie with Winona and Ethan. We're unsure about 10,000 BC (C5, Mon and Tue) and Quiz Nights (The Satellite Channel, Fri); both seem to be much more documentary than game.
