What do you think are the worst ever Game/Quiz shows that should never have been broadcast.

My least favourites are:
1. Pointless - with the much irritating Alexander Armstrong & poxy prizes
2. In It To Win It - well past its sell-by date
3. Countdown - also well past its sell by date and boring with it.
4. Golden Balls - least said the better.
5. Anything hosted by Ant & Dec.

Pointless? Blasphemy!

I caught an episode of The 21st Question a few weeks back and it was painful.
Gethin Jones just has no charisma whatsoever.

I agree on Pointless, I try and avoid watching it but it's always on the TV in the changing rooms at the gym and it really lives up to its name.

Pointless only got weaker because the questions are now a bit rubbish. Otherwise it would still be great,.

Love a bit of Pointless. Tipping Point seems kinda bad though. I've only glanced at it a few times so I don't really get it.

Pointless is fun

OTOH, Deal Or No Deal really is pointless.

Pointless is up there with the best.

Are You Smarter Than A Ten Year Old really grates me.

Pointless is, like many a great game show, being ruined by the fact it's on too much. It's such a brilliant idea and the hosting is superb. On the other end of the spectrum is The Chase, a solid idea, but with some of the worst hosting of any show on TV.

Pressure Pad is awful though, as is Tipping Point.

I don''t know how many people saw 'Cleverdicks' hosted by Anne Widdecombe, but I think that deserves the title of 'Worst Quiz Show' with close competition from the likes of Ejector Seat, Eggheads (beyond dull now - I swear half the contestants now are retired) and Tipping Point.

Pointless I enjoy wathing but I seldom do now. It's gotten a bit rubbish ever since they started including questions based around anagrams (FLUSH!). Two Tribes I think is actually far more enjoyable.

University Challenge is really boring.

Have to agree with Tipping Point, I watched some of it once and it's not that good. Also The National Lottery Who Dares Wins

WHAT! No-one will talk shit about University Challenge here, the only show of its nature I watch religiously (unfortunately I look like a pompous know-it-all if I ever say how many I get right in an average 30-minute period).

Pointless is okay sometimes if I feel like it, I honestly don't think I'd ever want to waste my time watching any others these days (so they can all be the worst).

Anything with Ant and Dec, then Pointless, then that one with the fairground coin machines, then Golden Balls, then Millionaire, and probably loads more.

Anyone remember early noughties flop Your Kids In Charge starring Anthea Turner and her half sister who used to do Pet Rescue? Easily the worst thing ever. Embarrassing adult family members because the kids got to pick who did what task. The budget was non existent. One round was a game of Buckaroo. With an actual sized Buckaroo set. Looked ridiculous sitting in the middle of a huge empty stage.
