Tipping Point fans issue complaint as messed up ITV schedule causes chaos

  • Bookmark
  • Tipping Point viewers were all saying the same thing during tonight’s episode (May 8) after an unexpected schedule shake-up.

    The ITV programme usually airs at 4pm, as viewers watch host Ben Shephard welcome three contestants to their podiums to battle it out for a cash prize.

    But as viewers tuned in, they were surprised to learn that the show was not on, and instead the network aired another gameshow, Tenable.

    Fans eventually learned that the show would air at a later time of 5pm, causing confusion amongst fans.

    “Tipping Point or Pointless or Tenable? Can’t keep up ITV!” said one fan.

    “#tippingpoint starting now #thechase after the news folks, don’t ask me why the schedule is all messed up,” penned a second, while a third added: “Bloody hell, thought it was time for #thechase ! so confused lol. Go again! Good evening Tippers! #tippingpoint.”

    Fans are often left confused about schedule shake-ups on the network.

    In April Tipping Point was booted off the air entirely for most of the week, leaving fans without their daily dose of the trivia show.

    The change was a result of the horse racing coverage and left some fans fuming.

    But when the show finally returned, viewers were left rejoicing as the network finally aired brand new episodes instead of lots of repeats.

    “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – after weeks of endless repeats, brand-new #TippingPoint is back!” one player announced.

    “A special appearance by me today to herald the arrival of a NEW #tippingpoint according to the ITV schedule,” said a second.”

    A third joined in the celebrations, penning: “It’s been a while, but it’s time for *BRAND NEW* Tipping Point!” as a fourth added: “Is it true? New series!”

    Player Chris managed to take the lead in tonight’s episode scoring a place in the final, despite having only banked £1200.

    His performance left viewers underwhelmed as they struggled to understand how he even made it to the final.

    “Chris needs help tying his own shoelaces. Possibly worst finalist ever,” one fan blasted.

    “Glad he's gone for DZ 2 less chance of winning a lot of money because he certainly doesn't deserve it,” said a second, while a third added: “ #TippingPoint No sure if I should be rooting for this guy!!”
