So at last the time has arrived, I've lead development on a gameshow! :toot:

Benchmark stars Paddy McGuiness and sees members of the public attempt to answer guesstimation style questions for big cash prizes. It starts a 30 episode run, (with 5 extra celeb specials also on the way) on Monday at 4pm on Channel 4. The show is light hearted and you will not believe some of the things the contestants say.

I really hope you check it out and enjoy it as a lot of hard work has gone into it.

I tried to get Paddy to say 'PADDY IS LIVE'...but he wasn't having any of it.

"Guesstimation"

I'm going to hate it.

Tell me it's better than Tipping Point, DML. Is it just one day a week? I'm always at work on Mondays :(

Five days a week. :toot:

And yes, I'm fairly confident its better than Tipping Point. I didn't get into this to make shows worse than Tipping Point.

I know hes divisive, but he is really the perfect host for this show. Hopefully this show will turn your opinion round on him a little.

We both know you want to do an AYAW show.

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Do the contestants' "guesstimations" include drugs and anal?

Its not full-on gameshow, its basically an entertainment show that happens to be a gameshow.

Paddy's lost a bit of pack if that advert's anything to go by.

Well in DML, I'll give it a series record alongside Pointless.

Can't wait for the series finale where Paddy unravels a mysterious scroll to find it reads "There are no Benchmarks"

Looking forward to it.
