TV Guide 2017-02-11

Artwork returns to BBC1, The Big Painting Challenge is back (Sun). The Farmers' Country Showdown (BBC1, weekdays) has a descriptive title, and we don't think it counts as a game show (but we may be wrong). It's the final of Dance Dance Dance (ITV, Sun).

More hidden camera stunts on Remotely Funny (2) (CBBC, weekdays). Fifteen-to-One starts a new series (C4, weekdays), and Countdown tries to Rickroll us.
