Re: Challenge TV


If Sky were give Challenge a big budget boost then these are my suggestions:

Show US versions of The Price is Right and Wheel of Fortune a week after US airing.

Get the rights to ABC's remake of The Gong Show from the US, you could also commission a British remake of TGS with David Walliams.

Commission a video gaming quiz show with Le Mack as a host.

Alternately they could go into joint venture with either ITV, FremantleMedia or Endemol. That could help Challenge future.

Re: Challenge TV


Having some US gameshows in the schedule would be nice. CBS Drama has shown some episodes of Wheel of Fortune US recently, which was a very odd thing for them to do and it made me think "Why didn't Challenge acquire this?".

I've never heard of The Gong Show, so I don't think a British version would be likely. I also can't see them doing a gaming-themed quiz show, but hey, at least there's Go 8 Bit on Dave (the current series has been pretty good so far, by the way).

I still don't know whether Challenge having a joint venture with another company would make sense.

If they still had a creative team, they could commission Challenger On Fire (Sports Bakka in Germany)

Re: Challenge TV


I see that Challenge are going The Chase overload this Easter weekend with endless episodes during that period.

It is the shame that what was a great channel is now stuck in the hut, if it still was pay channel with the current output then it might have died today. It only survives because it make advert money for Sky, the problem that is Challenge is less of priority for a company.

Re: Challenge TV


As if The Chase isn't on Challenge enough as it is. I get why they're doing this, but they badly need to have some variety in the schedule.

Re: Challenge TV


I've stopped following Challenge on Twitter, that's how serious it's got people emoticon

If only they were more like the UKTV channels (Gold, Dave, etc), they may have alot of repeats of shows but they've commissioned lots of exclusive content in the last few years (examples: new Red Dwarf, Taskmaster, John Bishop's chat show, documentaries on sitcoms like dinnerladies and Only Fools)

I'd love it if UKTV bought Challenge off Sky and do it justice again, if not then move all of Challenge's shows on the UKTV channels (Crystal Maze and Takeshi on Dave for example) and put poor Challenge out of its misery.

Hey, that's not a bad idea at all. Just a shame it probably won't happen.

Re: Challenge TV


With Sky Living brand being axed. Challenge is now the last channel standing from the old Flextech/Virgin operation. That has made me think how long Challenge will last, the channel has been stuck in the hut for few years now, less classic game shows, no original commissions, its all The Chase, Bullseye and Pointless.

If the channel was going to survive it needs to go into partnership with the US equivalent GSN.

Re: Challenge TV


Sky Living being rebranded, eh? Wasn't expecting that. The new name, Sky Witness, sounds a bit odd. Anyway, in terms of Challenge, I can't see it going into any kind of partnership. There must be another way of getting the channel out of the situation it's currently in.
