Anyone know what the long term future is for Brainiac Science Abuse & Brainiac Test Tube Baby?

In Test Tube Baby they are 'finding' a resident scientist for the next series (series 5) of science abuse, but anyone know if there will be another series of Test Tube Baby? I think it rocks

Although I have no idea, Braniac: Science Abuse is one of Sky One's most popular shows, and by the way it's shown, being a new one every Sunday and the rest thrown at Sky One and Two's daytime schedule, I think it'll be a while until Sky axe the show. At least I hope it'll be a while.

As for Test Tube Baby, it only began this year. I've seen one or two shows and it seems just as popular. The only thing I could see changing is it's time slot.

I'll openly confess that the family got rid of Sky television 6 months ago. So I've been downloading and watching them all recently. Embarassed there I'm a crook

BUT!!! I'm actully getting telewest digital fitted for myself in my bedroom next monday the main reason above all to watch these shows course will only have 1 episode left of each by the time its all fitted. So hoping theres many more series to come. IMO one the best things on TV!

(note I don't watch alot of 'mainstream' tv reality tripe, soaps etc)

Brainiac is awful, I have a strong dislike for these 'blokey' science/technology programmes

Would you prefer a camp version, where perhaps Brian Dowling makes a caravan go poof?

I wonder if this channel will be timeshifted? Wink
As for Brainiac, it's one of my favourite programmes on Sky One because some of the experiments apart from the exploding caravans are watchable but I hate the episodes where they put gimmicky women in it to try and boost the ratings.

Ha, not quite. I was thinking more along the lines of not faking experiments to make it look extra 'dangerous' or whatever whilst blatantly lying about doing so:
