OK, we get schedules change all the time but we’re quite interested in shows that we thought were starting that seem to have mysteriously disappeared. Presumably they’ve just been pushed back, but is that a sign of confidence or something more… sinister? So, does anyone know anything?
- My Man Can - apparently ITV’s big Saturday night hope was originally suggested to go out in January. It’s DISAPPEARED.
- Prize Island – In theory we thought this sounded quite good. Sounds like it’s going out in the Spring, although I thought it was earlier. Incidentally, people have suggested there’s another series of The Cube that’s not yet been broadcast yet they’re making another one, so that’s got to fit somewhere.
- My Little Princess – A big press release suggested E4 would be showing this in January. They haven’t. Again, quite looking forward to this, a dating show by way of Takeshi’s Castle/Wipeout from one of the brains behind the brilliant Banzai.
- The Common Denominator – Again, press release suggesting this was going to begin on Monday 4th Feb but Face the Clock (which yesterday barely scraped 250k viewers) is still on, and on next week also. Did they just miscount the amount of episodes or something?
Meanwhile fans of The Line Up can be pleased to know that there’s a new episode coming soon. Thanks to our friends at QuizQuizQuiz.com for supplying the questions. Quizicoatal’s costume designer isn’t telling me how it’s dressing this episode yet.
Also POKER on Sunday at 8pm, Game two of Mix It Up Real Good concerns Razz – seven card Stud Low. It’s a lot of fun and here’s a crib sheet so you know what to look out for. I have an engagement all day Sunday and might actually be late for the game myself but if you want to play and are not a member of the Poker Club yet it’s very very important you apply sooner rather than later because if you wait until Sunday I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to admit you in time. FAIR WARNING. Tell your friends!
