  1. Not strictly true regarding Supermarket Sweep.

    The original UK version, with Dale Winton as host, had been a huge daytime success in the 1990s.

    Its 2019 revival, this time with Rylan as host, was initially intended for a minor channel (ITV2) where expectations around viewing numbers are low. It performed sufficiently well there for a further series to be commissioned on the main ITV network, however ratings were poor and the show has since been permanently shelved.

      1. Maybe the format needs a bit of tweaking, though you can’t go wrong with a game show revolving around supermarkets. Universal appeal is there.

  2. The programming of The 1% Club in the primetime slot is excellent. They knew they were onto something good and stuck with it. It shows that it’s possible to create a game show, or any programming that resonates for that matter and create success.

    I personally think a Supermarket Sweep revival could do very well as it has all the hallmarks of universal appeal. Family friendly and dealing with markets, which everyone can resonate with. It was a success recently on ITV, one of the main channels in the UK, and the host Rylan is very likeable and charming.
