From The Masked Dancer to I Can See Your Voice, the last week has seen multiple entertainment formats which have been shelved by broadcasters.
TV Zone exclusively revealed on Monday night that The Masked Dancer had been shelved by ITV, with no plans for a series this year. Though, ITV are understood to be developing more one-off specials of The Masked Singer, similar to its I'm A Celebrity Special which aired last year.
Just a day after The Masked Dancer news, it was revealed by The Mirror that ITV had also decided to rest Ninja Warrior UK this year. It's reported that this is due to ITV's coverage of the Rugby World Cup which will dominate the Autumn schedule.
Also exclusively revealed by TV Zone on Wednesday night, Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow has been shelved by ITV, with no plans for a series this year. Alan Carr was announced the following morning as host of new BBC gameshow Picture Slam.
Possibly the most surprising of the week, the BBC were revealed (via The Sun) to have axed music format I Can See Your Voice. The series was hosted by Paddy McGuiness and debuted in Spring 2021, with its following series airing late last year after more than 12 months on the shelf. Ratings were stable and worthy of a recommission.
Not a good week for Paddy McGuiness, with his other BBC Saturday night show revealed to be no more. Catchpoint ran on BBC One for four series, with the previous two series comprising of celebrity specials. The last series aired last Spring and will not be returning.
The format will not be returning to Dave for a second series, following its first series last Spring.
It was formerly confirmed this week that Moneybags would not be returning to Channel 4 for a third series. First reported in December, the production company behind the Channel 4 daytime quiz this week announced they were to close.
