Its the Wheel of fortunes ( with Nicky) which is the oldest show on Challenge, Im sure that was on last week. I agree it needs some new shows. Plus your right about the it birthday.
I think Neil is referring to the fact that The Crystal Maze has been in the Challenge schedule longer than any other show.
And to think back with Sky took over the channel all those new shows which appeared, but of course for every Blockbusters 1st series or Countdown or even Bobs full house you need lots of chase and millionaire to bring in the ad money.
