Apparently the memorandum on TV shows not bothering to sound like Jerry McGuire’s “show me the money” because it sounds rubbish was ignored by ITV and Shiver who have done exactly that, hopefully it will be more successful than their recent Cook Me The Money.
Richard Bacon hosts as a team of three civilians take on a three celebrities (captained by TV’s Chris Tarrant) in a television quiz, pondering whether people who watch the television know as much as the people who make it. On the line is £3,000 with the civilians playing for themselves
and the celebs playing for charity. It’s Eggheads meets Telly Addicts, basically.
We like a good TV quiz and we also like Richard Bacon, but are aware that that’s far from a universal opinion. Chris Tarrant must be due his one-in-fifty hit format. Shiver were recently responsible for a very enjoyable documentary on newsflashes (amongst a host of other things), so we’ll see if they can translate that to a general television sphere.
