For this one, I want to keep it as much Ecnal Silyab's voice as possible and have him as the sole credited author, only getting an 'additional research by' credit myself.

smiley - ok You could just add that Wheel of Fortune is UK as well as Australia.

I note 'the difficulty rose' twice in Millionaire

It would be nice to see mention of The Chase in here, I think...

I've made a couple of tweaks as suggested.

As this isn't a genre I've actually watched, I've tried to keep it in Lance's original words as much as possible and would prefer not to make large changes if it can be avoided. So I've not mentioned 'The Chase', partly for this reason and also partly because I don't actually know what that programme actually is. Is that the GB one?

Perhaps a line about Scrapheap Challenge (UK) and Junkyard Wars (US)?

It is a good suggestion.

I was hoping not to make any additions to try and keep this one in as original condition as possible, but it is a good suggestion, so I'll have a think…

Regis' last name is Philbin, not Philburn. Minor, but perhaps something a Sub might miss.

I only managed to comment on three of these... I wonder if I got distracted, or just didn't have comments on the others? I'll add them to my list of things to do smiley - run

SashaQ - happysad and 'slightly mad'

Reading this, I see you added a paragraph before the Whose Line is it Anyway header, but I don't think it's needed, as the information is repeated in the subsection. That is one of my all time favourite programmes - always good for a massive laugh as Clive, Greg, Colin and Ryan were brilliant and the special guest was well chosen too smiley - ok The US series was good, but definitely had a different flavour to it - it was a good laugh, but not always a massive one.

I'm not sure about the dates - 1998 is in the header, but 1999 is mentioned in the text.

smiley - ok

The US Whose Line section could do with just a bit more polish. There are a few typos, but I notice Greg Proops is listed as both Principal and Guest, so a tweak could help with that. Also, it is not clear who Wayne Brady is. I'm not sure what Footnote 2 means, either.

Otherwise, this is ready to go, as I like how you have kept it focused after setting the scene in the introduction smiley - ok

I've tweaked that section so that hopefully it is all much clearer. smiley - smiley
'Whose Line is it Anyway' is the only gameshow I've regularly watched!
