  1. I can’t believe I am saying this but I like the 1% club UK better now, and the UK bought the idea from us and it was probably only forecasted to rate half the amount of the Australian version, the Australian version seems to occur now in comparison and hard to watch, our Australian contestants are good but Jeffries goes on to much and its ‘put down’ daggy humour which anyone can do.

  2. The 1% Club is doing very well. Which shows that the networks should be investing in game shows that resonate. Lee Mack has good comedic experience with Not Going Out and past work. So it’s both the format and the casting that counts. Just like Bradley Walsh from The Chase UK is much loved and popular.

    1. A good question. Mastermind and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (UK) drew solid crowds if I recall, The Chase, Tipping Point, Pointless more quiet achievers in arvo slots. It’s a win for Seven given their cost versus original productions such as MasterChef and The Summit. Hopefully it doesn’t damage the local version.

      1. Thank you very much for your reply, David. Yes, some shows have done well but 1% Club UK winning its time slot in prime time is an amazing achievement! I hope the local version isn’t damaged either.
