A quiz about quiz shows

I have composed this quiz to test a wide spread of knowledge and philosophy of quiz shows and quiz show hosts. I must point out that all the questions are about U.K. quiz shows. If you're a quiz show addict then this is the quiz for you.

This quiz as a whole tests knowledge from several different backgrounds. The philosophy regarding each quiz asked about can be anything from academic to comedy oriented. The format of the quiz shows vary a lot. Some have really studious and academic philosophy attached to them. Others are a bit of a laugh for some of the time and contestants discuss their family life as well as answering quiz questions.
