Last Friday night, Letters & Numbers on SBS ONE reached the end of is fourth season with the fourth Grand Final won by Sam (pictured).
This week, the game show has moved into its fifth season. This season will include myself Andrew B appearing as a contestant on Thursday April 12.
Alicia B appeared as a contestant on the show last year on May 10 – early in the second season.
The show has evolved over its four seasons to become more entertaining with contestants giving names to each of the number mixes they choose (Classroom mix, family mix, etc) – details can be found on their website: www.sbs.com.au/lettersandnumbers
The UK version called Countdown – now it its 66th season – features alot more letters games than ours does, and is nowhere near as enjoyable to watch. Having said that though, reaching 66 seasons is quite remarkable.
Letters & Numbers was originally produced by Shine Australia, but has been an in-house production for SBS for a few season now.
The show is watched by an average of around 140,000 viewers (5 city metro, OzTam) each night.
Letters & Numbers airs on SBS ONE, 6pm weeknights. Repeats run a week behind, at 3pm weekdays on SBS ONE.
