I assume the Australian carbon copy version of Quizmania is still on (IIRC) their Nine Network?
I think some of the regional stations have dropped it, though it is still running.
Echo the general view - Quiz Mania is the exception to the rule and virtually the only ones of these shows I'd find myself watching.
In my opinion it was to the quiz TV market what The Big Breakfast was too breakfast television when it launched - never forgetting it was there too entertain above all else.
Hopefully every cloud though will have a silver lining as some of the QM team do deserve a chance to mix with the big boys.
As for Mr Scott - based on the last couple of days, I think the Countdown job might be up for grabs again sooner rather than later!
