Pointless


#367

Yep. They stopped airing it as of yesterday.


#368

It aired as normal on (WIN) Eleven.


#369

Endomol Shine may have pulled the show now that Ten has the rights to the format. I reckon ratings for Pointless on Ten might tick up slightly as a result if it’s the only version on FTA TV.


#370

I remember seeing on the TV Guide the other week that the ABC was showing the UK Pointless at like 3.15pm.


#371

pointless has been totally dropped from the abc tv guide


#372

So it must have been quite recent then.


#373

Yes, it was dropped as of this Friday.


#374

Week of Winners promo, I’ve heard an ad for this on Nova Brisbane a couple of times today as well.


#375

What’s the incentive to watch the final round then since you already know everyone wins the jackpot this week?


#376

The show is now offering viewers a chance to win a holiday in Los Cabos, Mexico.


#377

I dont think anything will lure viewers now. I stopped watching it last week because I don’t like how rushed it is and that there is barely any interaction with the contestants.


#378

A fairly long Pointless preview is airing between HYBPA? and Street Smart tonight, appears to be just winners.


#379

That Pointless preview was really strange. It ran for 3:30 mins


#380

What a boring show. It’s goodbye from me. Goodbye! :sunglasses:


#381

One of the best shows on TV at present!


#382

I enjoy it as well - my favourite thing is the fact it’s 30 min. The Chase and Hot Seat really just drag on at an hour.


#383

That’s the main thing I hate about. It’s way too rushed compared to the original, especially the final round. I also hate that they dont show the pointless answers on screen for the people watching at home.


#384

I’m warming to the show, not really appointment viewing for me though.


#385

People complaining its rushed…you’ll probably complain if it was the full hour too! :joy:


#386

I know I wouldn’t because that’s the my biggest complaint of the show. I have no problems with the UK version. It’s not like the first half hour of The Project rates anyway so they could easily make Pointless longer if the wanted to.
