To celebrate GSN’s doomed to failure US version of Pointless, here’s another version that I thought did a pretty good job but didn’t last, the German version Null Gewinnt (Zero Wins) from 2012 on ARD. Each episode was self-contained, no rolling jackpot, but you got €1,000 for every Pointless answer you gave anyway. Of course the German Richard Osman is cheating by actually having his computer turned on.
And Paul O’ Grady’s doing Blind Date! Wowsers.
