TV Guide 2021-07-10

Sportsball might have come home, but it's gone quiet again - at least for a few weeks. Instead, Quizzy Mondays make a return, and how! Radio 4's Brain of Brains kicks off a new series, there's new Pointless on BBC1, and Only Connect and University Challenge come back to BBC2.

ITV has a new Saturday night schedule: Rolling in It comes back, and The Void is a challenge to not fall into a big tank of water. They've also got a new run of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, but we don't want to give you that. Cooking With the Stars is on Tuesday. On Friday night, ITV2 tries to impress with Apocalypse Wow. Channel 4 has something somewhere in the week, but we forget what.
