TV Guide 2020-02-01

A choice of German-language quizzing on Saturday night. Some may prefer the pure challenge of Ich Weiss Alles!, specialist subjects and the audience and a Quiz God. Others will watch Schlag den Star, mostly for the bits between the contests.

On conventional telly, there's a new run of The Heist (The Satellite Channel, Thu), and Hypothetical returns to Dave (Wed).
