Did anyone see this last night with Brian Dowling. Some woman was playing the Hot Pots game and he misheard the letter she called out and revealed it without checking. She won 10 pounds but could have been 10,000. I imagine she could sue

Yes I saw that. He heard D or something and she kept saying "but I played B" or the other way around. i felt sorry for her. Think she'd just had £1000 though so she got £1010 but yes it could have been £11000.

The Mint has always been the masterplan for ITV. We (QM) were only ever meant to be an ITV2 show, but we got shoved on to ITV1 for a 3 month period to warm up the slot for the mint. I don't think we'll ever be back on ITV1, but I do suspect the Mint will never make ITV as much money as we did.

I'm really disapointed Quizmania is only on ITV2 late night now, It was usually just a great programme to watch on its own, but I cant always stay up that late to watch it.
Jon - Will Quizmania will back on Sky anytime soon or is it going to be a perminant feature on ITV2 for a while????

[cryptic] There *might* be something in the works with regards to an earlier show... if there was I'm sure they'd let people know fairly soon... [/cryptic]

i can't believe people are praising a scam quiz show , on this of all forums

ITV are obviously realising the £££££ potential here and given up their friday night schedule in favour of this.

I hate The Mint, it takes itself far too seriously. It really isn't the prima ballerina it considers itself.

Bright side, I find myself not watching it; which means unlike Quizmania ITV1 days, I can actually SLEEP again!

Been Trying to watch the Mint for a few days to see if could be any better than QM, but sorry it complety sucks, QM is still far superior to this rubbish programme.

The Main thing I hate is the Jackpot Game, So you have to pick 4 digits to open the Vault to win £100,000, an impressive prize, However the odds of winning it is 1 in 9999 chance(Very awful odds) I just really hate a Jackpot like this as its virtually impossible to win with odds like that. At least Quizmania's odds of winning a jackpot was 1 in 99 chance when they did the Cheque Game(far more respectable) and then it decreased sinse they did the Keys Game(A 1 in 50 chance)
Also the stupid presenters on the Mint keep saying with so many wrong answers said on the Vault Game already that the Jackpot could go soon, ummm whatever, You've only been on sinse Last Friday, even if they have had about 100-200 answers already,The Odds at the moment are still around 1 in 9800 chance so errr I dont think it will be won anytime soon or NEVER really

I think its terrible Quizmania got booted for the Mint, I realise that QM was only meant to be a 3 month thing anyway, but Greg Scott has said they have had Tons and Tons of letters that people are sad to see Quizmania gone from ITV, and didnt want it to go,I now feel the same really. Think I will write into Quizmania telling them I hate the Mint, and wished they returned in favour of this awful rubbish

The one good thing about the mint is the blonde girl with the big kahunas.

Oh and celebrity guests! If QM had celbrity guests (not that I watch it now so don't know) it would be better.

Write into The Mint telling them how much you hate The Mint and they might get the message.

Well as far as I can see, the Mint has Guests, but not Celebrity Guests!

Rainbow bloke that was on the other night now drives a taxi for a living! Hardly a celeb!

edit: my point is proven: tonight, they don't have the actual Shirley Bassey as the guest ... they have a Shirley Bassey impersonator as the guest

They also had Ricky Tomlinson who just shouted at all the callers over-enthusiatically which was pretty funny.

is it me or has Quizmania lost its appeal. I used to watch it all the time when im at uni, but on itv2, its crap. £500 for the top answer is crap, i know im not the one phoning up and winning the cash, but it feels just crap. And their £100 bonus seems pathetic when before they used to do £500 minimum bonus.

And the Mint just sucks....although one of the presenters has a great pair of boobs

With Quizmania being on ITV2 I guess the revenue they make isn't as good as ITV 1 so we have to put up with the lower money. Apparently Quizmania will also be getting a 9pm slot on the ITV Play channel which launches on Freeview on the 19th of April and I'm guessing it will still be on late nights on ITV2 as well.

I hope this ITV Play channel will be on Sky as well so we can see Quizmania earlier if its true, Really dont like this latest setup with it on at 1AM each evening, As said I really enjoyed just watching it as a programme, its suprising how enjoyable it really is to watch sometimes especially when Greggles is on who I think is so funny IMO

According to the ITV Play website at http://play.itv.com it only seems to be on freeview when it launches next week.
