The Syndicate

Show Summary

The Syndicate is a general knowledge quiz show which was aired on BBC1 in August, 2000. The show was hosted by Nick Ross, and the competition was between two teams, and each of the teams were made up of four members. Unlike the regular quiz shows, the teams do not lose points if they answer a question incorrectly, but they lose a team member. When a team answers correctly, they do not gain points, but they can eliminate a member of the opponent's team or they can utilize the opportunity to bring back one of their team members who had been eliminated earlier. The captain of both the teams are safe, and they are also immune to elimination. Audiences did not like the show as it seemed to be a mixture of various other TV quiz shows. The program did not appeal much to the viewers, and was canceled in November, 2000.
