TV Guide 2018-06-30

Schedule A, Schedule B, Extra Time, and Kicks from the Penalty Mark. Mark Pougatch's The World Cup With Stephen Mulhern But Not Piers Click Change The Channel (ITV, BBC1) continues, and turns the schedules into a work of speculative fiction.

For this piece, "Schedule B" has the BBC showing the evening game and ITV showing the afternoon game. "Schedule A" has the evening game on ITV and the afternoon game on the BBC. If they decide to do something else instead, we're all lost.

The Wimbledon Rainwear and Umbrella Exposition (Incorporating Cagoule '18) shows off all the latest macintosh and wellington fashions, and they take Pointless off air for it.

One final: Taskmaster (Dave, Wed). One new series of note: BBC New Comedy Award starts (Radio 4 Extra, Friday), and previous winners have done well at Got Talent lately.
