I wonder that one of the reasons Sky does not invest much in Challenge anymore is because pre-watershed entertainment commissions do not fit the in house Sky pay channels image. There has been a dearth of these commissions on Sky One lately. Ten years ago they had Gladiators, Don't Forget The Lyrics, Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old and Got to Dance.

The Weakest Link returns to the channel from mid-September. Maybe it is part of the deal Sky signed with BBC Studios that would see UKTV taking over Challenge.

Seeing as the post's from Akinbola, don't expect it to actually be returning to the channel at all.


The Weakest Link IS coming back to Challenge, I saw a promo for it earlier today.


Ahh, right, I'd just assumed it was part of Akinbola's fevered imagination along with Sky selling Challenge to UKTV. Which most definitely isn't happening.
