All Star Family Fortunes with Vernon Kay comes to Challenge next Sunday at 7:30pm.

That can't be right, Impossible has only just arrived in that timeslot.

It suddenly makes me feel very old when I see the first episode was now 13 years ago!

It is right.


Old schedule is 6pm Weakest Link, 7pm Impossible, 8pm The Chase, 9pm The Chase Celebrity.

New schedule is 6pm Bullseye, 6.30pm Impossible, 7.30pm Family Fortunes, 8.15pm Family Fortunes, 9pm The Chase Celebrity.

Looks like they just moved Impossible forward half an hour due to the different lengths of the shows on before and after.

Is the Family Fortunes double bill two Vernons, or a Vernon and then a Les (or Bob/Max)?

They're both listed as All-Stars, they're Vernon episodes. A Les, Bob, or Max one wouldn't need a 45 minute timeslot.

Well neither did the Vernon one but that's another story.

You mean because of too much filler, right? It actually looks like they edited some of that fluff out, else it would be a full hour per episode.

I think it did air in 45 minute slots on ITV.

Anyone catch Family Fortunes today at lunchtime? Cropped awfully- don’t have a clue what aspect ratio they were trying to fit it in. Series 11, anyone have any idea what that was originally broadcast in?

There have been several post-2000 game/quiz shows aired on Challenge recently including a few from the BBC. Have they given up on new commissions of true classic shows from the 80's/90's and will the ones they do show disappear from the channel once their current run ends? Weakest Link is a brilliant acquisition - not too sure about All Star Family Fortunes and Impossible. It'll be interesting to see how they rate.

Think they just want to experiment with new things.

I hope All Star Family Fortunes isn’t as awfully cropped as the current series of Les’s FF they’re showing.
