Oh dear - I wonder how long it will take for this idea to fall flat?

If the first episode severely tanks in the ratings, I anticipate that it'll be quickly dropped. (ITV has form for doing this...) Repeats of something perennially popular will then be whacked out in its slot instead, and the remaining IFAP episodes will eventually be shoved out at some "dead" viewing time (e.g. 4pm on Sundays in July, or something).
I'm still a European.

Sounds like an insert from Noel's House Party or something Keith Chegwin would've done. £1,000 is a poor payout for ITV gameshows. I don't think it'll catch on and really smacks of desperation from ITV.

This programme hasn't even been on television yet and already it's absolutely definitely going to tank in the ratings and be immediately dropped. Might it be helpful to base opinions on watching the show rather than a two-line synopsis?
