By accident I found another Endurance based advert, this time it's for Toffee Crisp in 1999 [url][sign in to see URL]

Re: Challenge TV


Challenge said on Facebook page last week that after the many people responded to question on what shows would like to see on the channel in 2019, something excited is coming to the channel soon. A major revamp perhaps? I hope the Challenge needs a shake up for the better, the last few years have been awful

Re: Challenge TV


Yeah, I noticed that. I don't think it'll be a revamp of the channel itself (even though I agree that something has to change), but hopefully some nice acquisitions.

On Challenge's Facebook page the old staff who used run the social media side of Challenge has come clean about the channel's downfall.

Quote:

I used to work on Challenge and used to run this page! The trouble is... we bought old 321, we bought old Terry Blankety Blank, we bought Bullseye series 1, we bought Max Bygraves and Bob Monkhouse Family Fortunes... and we were so excited! Then... nobody watched them... they never rated well and of course the channel is still a business so has to hit targets and make money. The Chase and millionaire... anything newer looking rates well and so of course they have to be put in more. I've seen the same over on Drama who had early episodes of The Bill which abruptly stopped and started showing the newer ones because they obviously rated better. If you owned a shop... bought a product and nobody bought it.. you would buy more of the products that everyone bought.
I get it, more choice of older shows would be great but I also get why Challenge show a lot of the newer shows.



The power behind the channel has changed in the recent years, the management at Sky now has the final say of the output making harder for social media team to wrestle control of the output.

Re: Challenge TV


I'm not surprised. I get Sky's thinking from a business point of view, but it doesn't mean they shouldn't try to have a bit of variety in the schedule.

Re: Challenge TV


Ratings, dear boy. Chasing the phantom viewer who says "who wants to watch old stuff? Boring." It's similar to the games industry, it's not enough to capture some of the market and some of the profit some of the time, it must be ALL of the market and ALL of the profit ALL of the time, or you're useless. The famous stuff that instantly pulls due to brand recognition gets priority, thus. Britain's notoriously false association of repeats of anything with laziness and lack of imagination doesn't help.
