    Alexander Armstrong presents Pointless, a game show where, unlike the others, it is the lowest scoring teams who proceed into the subsequent rounds. Before an episodes is recorded 100 people are given questions which can have multiple answers (e.g: Name countries beginning with D), then the contestants answer and the points they receive is equal to how many of the 100 said it. So they need an aswer that few of the 100 gave, if none of the 100 said it the contestant gets 0 points (aka 'Pointless'). It was played by five teams of two in the first season and then four teams of two from the second season onwards. It originally aired on BBC-2 up to episode 135 and then BBC-1 from episode 136.

    This family game show, hosted by The Gadget Show's Jason Bradbury, pits two teams again one another in a series of physical and mental challenges. Set in an underground forest, the teams must try not to scare a 4ft animatronic robot hare (voiced by Sue Perkins). In the finale, £15,000 is up for grabs. Planned as the start of BBC One's Saturday night schedule, the series failed in the ratings and was put on hold after six episodes with the final three being shown five months later in a Saturday afternoon slot.

The show involves contestants choosing answers from a list given by the host which contains just one wrong answer. The contestants who choose the wrong answers are ejected from the show in a variety of ways which culminate in the contestants being thrown into a large pool of water. If two or more contestants choose the same answer from the list, those contestants battle it out in a quick fire round. The loser of the quick fire round must then choose another answer from the original list. The winner of each episode wins £10,000.moreless

    Comedian Alexander Armstrong hosts this Saturday night entertainment show, which showcases some of the weird and whacky talent members of the British public have. Their "talents" are judged by a panel which will put a secret cash value of up to £1000, making a total jackpot of £3000, to what they've done. The performer then has to guess how much they theoretically earned. If they over-estimate their worth, they walk away with nothing and exit through the "epic fail" door, if they estimate on or under their worth they get to keep their "epic win".moreless
