Day 2234: New ITV Game Show


As we were watching Mr CHARLIE BROOKER doing his Screenwipe on BBC4, explaining how the television ratings are worked out, an idea for a brand you game show struck me!

It would be for a ONE MILLION POUND cash prize and it would be called:


Four teams are sent out in NINJA COSTUMES, given cryptic clues and a TV detector van and told to track down as many BARB ratings boxes as they can find. Each team is equipped with a sack full of electronic GIZMOS with which they can "tag" each and every box they discover.

And here's the clever bit: the gizmos automatically jam the ratings box onto one of the four ITV channels: ITVnone, ITVsame, ITVagain and ITVrude!

At the end of the week, you can tell the team that has WON by which ITV channel has the highest ratings!
