ON-AIR: NEW BBC1 QUIZ SHOW HARDBALL TO AIR WEEKDAYS AT 4.30PM
Time to set the planner! Starting next Monday 14th May, Hardball will air at 4.30pm every Monday to Friday on BBC1. Finally, I’m so glad to say, Hardball has its very own home in the schedule.
It just happens to already be the home of some very popular quiz shows! We’re massive fans of Tipping Point and The Chase in our house (both air between 4-6pm on ITV) as is the case in quite a few other households! Nothing wrong with a bit of friendly competition, right!?
And of course, not forgetting another huge fan favourite Pointless, which follows immediately after Hardball on BBC1. To move our show into what’s already a very busy, quizzy neighbourhood for me, while a little daunting, is a real honour.
Like the best of them, Hardball does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a simple format but one that isn’t quite as easy as it first appears. By the end, I’m in a cold sweat most shows! It’ll definitely bring a bit of drama to daytime on BBC1.
But for a few nerves, nothing takes away from the excitement of launching a brand new show. And reassuringly we all absolutely love quizzes, so hopefully everyone watching will enjoy the newest quiz on the block.
Hardball airs weekdays from Monday 14th May, 4.30pm on BBC1. For more information on the series click here.
