Wowow-fail
Willie Revillame's Weekly Gamer Canceled
From the Inquirer

The last episode of “Wowowin” was aired on Sunday afternoon. But supporters of Willie Revillame need not be sad.

His show may be canceled but his fans will never leave him. Willie’s hiatus is only temporary as talks have been going on between him and GMA 7, bringing up the possibility that his weekly show may even turn into a daily one.

“Wowowin” has been receiving positive feedback since May 10. It gets good ratings, sometimes even surpassing the shows that came before it. But there are other factors to consider when producing a show, not just ratings.

GMA is now looking for a good time slot for “Wowowin” as it thinks 3:30 in the afternoon is not a good time for a variety game show.

If it were up to the GMA executives the Sunday program will continue, but it is Willie himself who decided to wait for the right time before airing “Wowowin” again, this time on a daily basis.

The Filipino audience will be delighted once Willie’s show starts airing daily, just like it used to.

Frozen: The Game Show
ITV Plots Game Show on Ice
From ITV

Freeze Out is the UK’s first quiz show on ice. A game of skill and quizzing ability, it sees contestants competing around a giant circular ice table.

Each round has a unifying premise: contestants answer questions to win ‘sliders’ to glide onto the ice table – onto which we project stunning, state-of-the-art graphics to create unique game boards.

In some rounds players must accurately land sliders onto tricky targets. In others they must smash opponent’s sliders out of the way. It’s a fun, friendly, all-embracing game – but one that brings out our players’ competitive streaks.

After four dynamic rounds just one player remains. They’ll take on our tense end game that could see them winning up to ten thousand pounds.

Freeze Out is essentially a brand new sport – combining accessible questions with a table game of skill, precision and power.

Hosted by the ever-affable Mark Durden-Smith, and officiated by former Premiership referee Uriah Rennie.

Freeze Out premieres August 10.

Bankrupted
Nicky Byrne's "Million Euro Challenge" Canceled
From Her.ie

He might be the Golden Boy at 2fm after a big jump in JNLR ratings, but Nicky Byrne's TV career with the national broadcaster is not going quite so well.

The Million Euro Challenge, fronted by the former Westlife singer, has been axed.

In a statement a spokesperson for RTÉ said: “RTÉ confirms that Winning Streak will continue into Autumn in place of Nicky Byrne’s Million Euro Challenge.”

The series was introduced to viewers in January. At the time, John McHugh, Head of Entertainment for RTÉ Television said: "I'm very pleased to welcome Nicky Byrne as the presenter of our new National Lottery TV gameshow, The Million Euro Challenge. Lottery gameshows have a special place in the hearts of Irish audiences. I think we enjoy watching contestants' good fortune on these shows. The new show will give contestants the opportunity to win up to a million euro every week. I have no doubt that Nicky's energy and enthusiasm will really enhance the appeal of The Million Euro Challenge."

The show got off to a bumpy start, however, with viewers finding the game rules confusing and complicated. As a result, ratings in the prime-time Saturday night slot suffered.

Byrne has yet to comment on the news.

"Food Truck Race" Gets Its Kicks on Route 66
Catch New Season on Food Network August 23
From the Futon Critic

The Great Food Truck Race is back for a sixth season this August with a brand-new fleet of fierce competitors cooking and traveling across America's most famous stretch of road, historic Route 66. In a return to the show's roots, the seven teams are professional food truck operators from around the country who are known regionally for their culinary talents and selling skills - and they are ready to be recognized from coast to coast. The 2,500-mile, food-filled road battle kicks off in Santa Monica, California then hits Sedona, Arizona and Santa Fe, New Mexico followed by tasty stops in Amarillo, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma and St. Louis, culminating with an epic finale in Chicago, where the winning truck is awarded a $50,000 cash prize. Hosted by Tyler Florence, the six-episode series premieres on Sunday, August 23rd at 9pm ET/PT.

"These skilled food truck entrepreneurs and our viewers are in for the road trip of their lives," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "Their journey across historic Route 66 reflects food culture itself: fast, intense, creative and delicious."

This season's competitors are: Diso's Italian Sandwich Society (Brooklyn, New York), GD Bro Truck (Orange Country, California), Pho Nomenal Dumplings (Raleigh, North Carolina), Postcards (Los Angeles), Spice It Up (Phoenix), The Guava Tree Truck (Dallas) and Waffle Love (Provo, Utah).

In the first episode, Tyler welcomes seven teams of professional food truck owners to Santa Monica and immediately sends them on their first challenge: a race to sell $200 of their signature dish on Santa Monica Pier. After a head-to-head sales showdown, the teams embark on their epic journey down historic Route 66. Their first stop is Lake Havasu City, Arizona where after a blistering day of selling, Tyler gives the first Truck Stop Challenge. Each team must create their own take on a fish and chips dish, and the first team to sell 20 orders wins a cash prize. These food truck pros quickly learn this race is more than just another day in the kitchen and one team is sent packing. The race then follows Route 66 to Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Amarillo, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; St. Louis; Springfield, Illinois and Chicago.

From Radio Times

If you think of yourself as a nerd, then think again – because you’re about to meet some professionals.

Well, nerd athletes at least – though Sky 1’s King of the Nerds (remade from a US series of the same name) favors mental fitness rather than physical, with 11 challengers battling it out to be crowned the titular geek monarch and sit on the hallowed Throne of Games (geddit?), which you can see below.

“I think there’s something for everyone in King of the Nerds,” says series host Konnie Huq moments after challenging RadioTimes.com with a hefty list of nerdy trivia questions (we did quite well, thanks for asking).

“It’s reality show meets quiz meets documentary, meets science, meets fantasy and sci-fi, meets awesome!”
