Celebrity Name Game

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007facd69b67e0>

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:

Thank god.

Have all the new episodes been shown?

No. There are unscreened episodes that may never see the light of day.

But can we assume that people who won money during the show had all been paid out?

I doubt that would be the case.

I assume that one of the reasons they are not airing the final episodes is so that they don’t have to pay that money out.

I know this has been posted in the 10 News thread also, however posting here for context also.

I personally think that 10 should never have gone down the track of stripping this show at 6pm, given how poorly it’s predecessor was doing in the same timeslot and given the obvious similarities.

Their original announcement as a prime time series could’ve worked, another host (anyone but Grant), and maybe a later 8:30-9:00pm timeslot to allow for a bit more adult content would’ve been good IMO.

On a personal note, I always quite liked the set of this show and it could possibly be re-worked into a talk show format.

But does stripped game show still have a future at 10? I mean, The Chase and Hot Seat are rating on Seven and Nine respectively.

It was awfully produced. Contestants and celebrities weren’t briefed on how to play. Grant was giving stage directions to them, which was consistently put to air. Someone would tell a joke and there was dead air. There were so many opportunities that could have been made in post-production editing to make it a sharper and more lively show, but they didn’t. I hated how it was a very repetitive format too- I think you could have incorporated elements of Game of Games into this.

I agree about the set though. Nice for a variety/late night show.

His dancing and lightening/namaste antics were annoying and cringeworthy. The production values were not typical of 10 (they were very low) and it’s too repetitive. Denyer tries to be funny as Craig Ferguson but he ends up sounding silly.
