Channel 4 Picks Up “The Common Denominator”; Records November and December
It looks like Channel 4 has a new quiz show coming to British television soon. The network has scheduled two months worth of recordings for the quiz show The Common Denominator from Armoza Formats. The Common Denominator is best described as a toned down version of BBC Four’s hit quiz Only Connect. In this game contestants have to find what connects just two objects. For instance, in a question taken from the pitch film, what connects Andy Richter and Arnold Schwarzenegger? The answer is “Conan”. That’s the basic idea of the game. Recording starts on November 19th and runs twice a day through December 8th most days. If you live in or plan on visiting London by then and want tickets to see the show, click here to apply. Given the taping schedule it looks to be a daily show.
The Common Denominator is being produced by Remarkable Television who also do Channel 4′s Deal or No Deal and BBC’s Pointless. Take a look at the pitch film below to see what you can look forward to. Like we said before, the show basically just a dumbed down version of Only Connect. Only Connect-Lite. What do you think?
