… and know your freaking audience. Pointless was always going to be an odd fit for Ten no matter how good the hosts were. Far too cerebral for viewers who were accustomed to the brain numbing content (Feud/Simpsons etc.) they’ve had in that slot over the years.

Yeah but I don’t think the hosts were the issue. And I actually really enjoyed the show. I thought it was great. But probably wasn’t a 10 show.

TV Tonight article says it is only a rumour with 10 declining to comment and say it has been axed

The article also makes note of its ratings consistently being under 200k which is not sustainable for the 6pm slot on a commercial primary channel.

Well no, given WIN’s figures don’t contribute to the metro ratings.

National figures are largely irrelevant unless the metro station is handling ad sales for their affiliate/s

Has Pointless been axed or not?

I would say, internally they have made the decision to not renew it. Filming may continue to a certain date. But after that, it’ll be gone.

Celebrity Name Game will probably launch the same week as Masterchef.

It’s not a bad show (like most of what 10 does!), it just hasn’t been able to develop an audience on 10.

Would be great if the ABC picked it up.

If it wasn’t on at 6pm it may have worked.

Pointless never had a chance just like Celebrity Name Game will never have a chance of success.
