The only problem I find watching celebrity games night is that it sometimes feels like they’re having more fun making it than I am watching it.


A story that sort of backs that up - Amanda Abbington was on Richard Herring's podcast recently (the cool kids might know it as RHLSTP) and declared she had never met him before that day. He then had to state they had met just a few days before recording an episode of Celebrity Games Night, however they'd all had so much to drink during the record she had forgotten!

Another example of cheap recycling on Channel 5.

Funniest Ever TV Cock Ups, which was shown last weekend, was full of clips which were taken from DVD extras, official online outtakes, and clips from things like It'll Be Alright on the Night (and credited as such) and other clips which had clearly been taken from the internet, for example the "Fanny Chmelar" Chase clip, where you could clearly see a website address which had been blurred out.

Another example of a repeat which has been renamed in the listings this weekend.

Most Shocking Talent Show Moments Ever! is being repeated as Biggest Talent Show Disasters

There's also a couple of other more subtle name changes in the listings for repeats this weekend:

The Cliff Richard Story was listed as The Cliff Richard Story: 60 Years at the Top.

Mamma Mia: The Story of the World's Favourite Musical is listed as Mamma Mia Mania: The World's Favourite Musical

Do they get away as counting these as new programming then?


Wouldn't think so, as they're listed as repeats in the schedule (on digiguide at least).

I reckon the reason they do it is to make them look like new programmes, to try and increase viewing figures.

There are some programmes which are repackaged (and not just renamed), which probably would be counted as new programmes.
