I realise that. But I like to think there is room across challenge schedule for KM. Different people watch it at different times. Maybe we all need black boxes on our tv? lol those evening ratings would have been much higher. lol

That's why I hope if any future eps come along they get at least one evening slot like we just have.

It's a bit frustrating when you consider the amount it times they repeat other shows, over and over. As for work being light and hours cut im enjoying the Crystal maze during the team time slot. :D haven't seen this for years.

Yes do love the Crystal Maze, with Richard O'Brien! I wonder what the viewing figures have been like for the tea time slot so far?

Well as only a hand full of people contribute to rating figures we'll never know, the figures we did get of KM must have incorrect.

They've only just started showing Crystal Maze 6pm I think, it benefits from being an hour show for that time slot. KM would probs benefit from a double bill in what id consider a prime time slot.

It's kinda sad but Crystal Maze is only one of two tv shows im currently watching on tv at the moment.. nothing else on worth tuning into.

I just replied to this, went to submit, found I had been logged out and had lost all my work. >:D

I tried to say that Challenge showed the Crystal Maze this time last year, at the same 6pm time slot, and it carried on through christmas and the new year up until march (of this year). I used to watch it when it was on at the time, but don't view many of the repeats now. Although did get to see tonights episode, which was dedicated to one of the contestants that had died after filming. :(

It's great they've put Knightmare on each day now, but at a time when not everybody can view it (or even the hour repeat) due to work commitments or other things. It's obviously tailored for the after school audience, who can come home on dark evenings and tune in, but original fans like us, it can prove awkward to view, but I'd much rather have that, than just the one friday night episode they had up until a short time ago. Not featured on weekends either ? Just Monday to Friday now, but five times a week, is far greater than just one episode a week, even if it is, as mentioned, a little inappropriate a time, for some who may want to view it.

Well it's already done the evening rounds so putting it on a tea time is great. As I say there's no reason why it can't be moved around for each showing. I doubt few people will watch a series and then watch it all again?

Really enjoying the Crystal maze repeats, not seen them for such a long time. :)

I just hope they continue with later viewings for future series if they come, it can have more than one time slot.

It can but the channel itself has gotta think what would be the best time to show it. It's not cheap to buy Knightmare so they want to maximise their viewing figures to justify shelling out for it and to potentially buy more series. For me, I think 6 in the evenings would be the best chance of good viewing figures.

As a general tip, it's a good idea before you submit a comment on any forum to right-click on your text, choose 'Select All', then right-click again and choose 'Copy'. That way, if anything does go wrong, your work is stored up in memory and can be pasted back in with a couple of mouse-clicks.

I always compose comments in Notepad and then paste them onto websites, for the same reason - it's too easy to write a massive essay and then lose it when your browser crashes or you accidentally navigate off the webpage, as I learned the hard way!

Any reason why they can't do both?
Giving the choice if like to see both for those reasons, not having the choice it has to be at least one run though during the evening for those of us who go to work.

I know what your saying but it would have a better chance of decent viewing figures. At half ten it did well for a bit then the figures declined. If we wanna see more series of Knightmare then challenge would need to show it at a time where there is more chance of good viewing figures. Showing it at half ten didn't work after a while and if that carried on the chances of challenge acquiring more series are slim to none.

Well I did work because many of us got to see it who wouldn't have other wise lol And we don't really know what the finial viewing figures were, because my viewing wasn't counted apparently.

It worked to begin with but then viewing figures declined so it didn't work out in the end. That was my point.

That because it was a bit of a novelty when it started, I think most shows start with high ratings and fizzle out over time. But we don't know what the viewing figures are anyway.
