After graduating from Saturday morning TV and the first attempt of prime time television was Slap Bang, which completly flopped, Ant & Dec knew they could do better with their next attempt. Six years and 52 episodes later, enough can be said of it.
Although the first series was edgy from series 2 in 2003, it started to come alive, moving out of its series 1 gameshow mood and into the light entertainment and action packed style show that we now know and love.
After a dissapointing fifth series in 2005, it aimed bounced back the following year with the new Beat The Boys and Jiggy Bank features, along with Ant vs Dec, which have helped to recognise to show in its own way. Did its changes that year succeeded? I think it did. Though the only downside is some of the series' are too short, six weeks to be precist.
Nonetheless, it's defenitely a prime time hit!
