Celebrity Name Game

In other words, the show has been axed.

Good idea though. Grant Denyer and the stupid antics he was up to (dancing, that namaste crap and the thunder and lightning rubbish) was unbearable and the format is repetitive. Rove demonstrated how much better he was at hosting but the show itself wasn’t fantastic so it’s best to get rid of it sooner than later.

Does it means there are no new episodes left? I notice 10Bold is still showing repeats at 6pm even though official ratings have begun.

No, they prerecorded about 3 months of episodes including a week of special Neighbours episodes that were supposed to screen in conjunction with the 35th anniversary of Neighbours in March. It’s a big waste if they don’t screen these.

Maybe Ten should try double episodes on a Saturday night. Their schedule is weak on Saturdays.

Couldn’t hurt??

Probably a cost thing. Most game shows come with a clause they won’t get the money unless they air the episode.

I noticed a Celebrity Name Game episode on 10 play tonight for Neighbours 35th anniversary with Ryan Moloney, Ben Hall, April Rose Pengilly and Stefan Dennis.

Did they show this tonight on 10 Bold? Have they been showing any other new episodes on 10 Bold?

Yes, it was shown tonight on 10 Bold according to online guides. It is the only new episode for this week, with repeats on Tuesday to Friday.

Very strange but at least they didn’t waste that episode.

glad they showed it, but strange that no other new episodes will air this week, nor show any promos for tonights episode.

I’m assuming there are only so many new episodes left in the can now?

Maybe a few weeks worth?

I don’t believe they’ve been showing any new episodes, other than the one from last night, so should have a few months worth in the can based on previous reports?

Do they think that they are returning to 6pm?

I doubt it. 10 could at least air the remaining episodes, maybe 6pm Sat/Sun nights to replace Bondi Rescue repeats. Can’t rate any worse, or can it? :thinking:

Those dying last words. I am sure I have heard them come from 10 before… In my opinion if it was a dud don’t air it, if viewers didn’t take to it before they won’t suddenly take to it on a Saturday. I say air out all remaining eps on Bold and be done with it.

They should at least try it for a week or two. If it doesn’t work then burn them on 10 Bold.

Just noticed that from next Monday, Celebrity Name Game is not listed on 10Bold.

According to Wikipedia, 113 out of 143+1 Special were replayed.

Wonder what they will do with the remaining episodes?

Saturday nights?

Premiered on 13 May last year accordingly Wikipedia, maybe only had a 12-month licence. :man_shrugging:

Makes sense it finishes this Friday if that is the case, as the 13th is Wednesday next week.

No surprise here:
