Anyone here been watching this? Been quite enjoying it! I know Michael is quite divisive among some but I'll watch anything with him in laugh.gif

There were two chart questions tonight as well!

This isn't as iconic as Danny Dyer's The Wall, but still an essential Saturday night/Sunday morning watch for me already

Loved the diverse range of questions last night from music to....sewing heehee.gif

I might've struggled on the Billy/Billie question but him thinking that The Weeknd had the most weeks at #1 in 2019 when he didn't have a #1 until this year was a frustrating moment laugh.gif banghead.gif

Also I know next to nothing about football but growing up near Sheffield, my instinct was to rule United out straight away so take that Emmanuel coffee.gif

I spent the first episode trying to get my head around the quite complex rules and complex. By this week's episode - I've got into the swing of it, and it's great. McIntyre's a good host, the range of celebrities is decent, and fun moments, like when the celebrities constantly get their own "specialist" categories wrong, or when by a stroke of luck the celebrity it lands on happens to have knowledge of another category (like when a question relating to a ballet move which is in French ends up going to the French-Canadian Katherine Ryan). It also has the most addictive theme tune for a gameshow in years - to the point that I do find myself blurting out "The Wheel!" at random times during the week. I have a feeling it'll be a one-season wonder, given that it's a 2020 replacement for McIntyre's usual Saturday show that can be done using social distancing.

I really want to hate it, but I'm enjoying it! Honestly was in stitches at the messy, chaotic ending today. McIntyre really makes the show - it would be quite flat without him.

Michael's said it was actually in development & planned before covid!

It will 100% get recommissioned! A good test will be how well it holds up in January without a Strictly lead-in. The fact it's retained pretty much its entire launch audience for the following two episodes is a good sign. It's also got the benefit of effectively a 'second launch' in the middle of the Christmas Day schedule!

This is really entertaining - it is an enjoyable watch in a similar vein to 'The Masked Singer' which is also a silly concept but fun!

I found the latest episode of The Wheel to be one of the funniest, I think partly because of the jokes being aimed at Joel Dommetís expense. laugh.gif

I watched this on Saturday just to catch a glimpse of Sophie Ellis-Bextor who was a contestant.

It's entertaining but I don't think I'll be watching it again, I find Michael McIntyre so supremely irritating.

Me do, I also find it just takes too long to get going.

Recomissioned for a second series of 16 episodes! That's quite a lot for one run, so I'd imagine it will be split in 2.

I wonder if that means they're not expecting Big Show to return this year?
