Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow

Pretty much a retake on Gameshow Marathon in my opinion. (May 2020)

I enjoyed it, but noticed that Brucie used to slide a cardboard indicator to show where the cards had been frozen, but this didn't.
It made it less clear which cards were played and couldn't be removed.


The borders where the card were placed lit up to indicate the same thing

I would have thought someone like Peter Kay would have done well?


The likelihood of Peter Kay doing a light entertainment show is zero and I’m sure he’s been asked many times and turned it down.

There has already been 2 pages of discussion in the ITV Programming thread that it might be worth merging

Why does he need to put any effort in when he's doing well enough slapping completely random clips together on prime time BBC1?

Indeed, I'm sure he wouldn't, but he's the sort of people person that Bruce Forsyth was, and where I'm not so convinced that Alan Carr would have been the first choice.
It was an entertaining programme, but a few refinements would be needed before a series was made, but for a one off it was fine.

They haven’t even uploaded it to the ITV Hub yet.

Maybe it needs that graphic changing before it's uploaded?

I thought it was a better effort than Gameshow Marathon with an obviously bigger budget. I liked some of the detail too, like the borders lighting up around the cards, and Alan's specs forming the design on the back of the cards. It did strike me though, that an hour felt a bit long for this show - there's only so many times you can hear people shouting higher or lower before it gets a little tiresome.

Does anyone know which show is planned for next week?

Almost certainly. I watched it last night on the Hub, so it's been removed since. Presumably to fix that error.

Wasn't fixed on the repeat this afternoon!

Do we know if The Price is Right will be using the US music as shown in the promo or the UK music as it was?
