The Julia Bradbury MULTIPLE eggtimer quiz begins on ITV on Monday 22nd in the 17:00 slot, so all of you wishing The Chase gets a break get your wish. Last year in the Summer afternoon Chase slot they tried out Tipping Point which turned out to be a triumph, so we’ll see if Julia Bradbury can overcome the “URGH, this isn’t THE CHASE” audience as deftly. I hope the show is more appealing than the title.
8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is getting a six week run, because it is more popular than both Countdown and 8 Out of 10 Cats, presumably. There was a bit more to 8/10C’n (I’m not bloody writing the whole thing again) than rude anagrams, so we’ll see if they have enough jokes to sustain a six week go.
