BULLY

So what makes Bullseye so popular?

Bullseye’s Andrew Wood explains “The format had to be strong, one which could stand the test of time, whilst being both practical and affordable and it would place the contestants at the heart of the show and the host would be the conductor, leading the way. And thus in 1980 the Bullseye format was born, going on to achieve not just unparalleled success, but it would be come one of the most treasured and loved shows on British television”.

 

 

BUULLSEYE 1The winning characteristic of Bullseye is that it is filled with elements that the public love, both in game shows and in their everyday life, and as a result it engages them in a way that no other game shows manage. The most popular game show elements are present, namely question and answer rounds, monetary and prize rewards and competition between contestants, but are combined with sports and gambling – two of the publics most cherished pastimes – to maximize the shows fun and feel good factor and to increase the given possibilities in any given show.

Whilst the contestants are the stars on the screen, the viewers feel as if they are a part of the show every bit as much and this inclusiveness is what gives Bullseye its mass appeal.

 

BULLSEYE 3

The success of the format is evidenced by its longstanding success as Bullseye ran for 15 series over the entire ITV network in the UK from 1981 to 1995 presented by Jim Bowen and referee Tony Green, winning a special place in the hearts of the nation and becoming a Sunday evening television institution. A sixteenth series was declined as the conditions demanded by the network were unacceptable and would not have been in the interests of either Bullseye or its fans yet the show has lost none of its appeal or status.
