Lingo

So far so good three teams try to work out four and five letter words using a ladder system and the same principle as the boardgame mastermind (right letter wrong position etc)
Presented by Adil Ray.
Was on at 4pm today (sunday)
You have a conundrum type element too.
Worth checking out

Good show. Always liked the US version and surprised it has taken this long to come over here.

What I like about it is the lack of faff. After the initial chat, it's pretty much all "action", which is unusual for a daytime quiz, which are generally 30 minute shows stretched out to last an hour.

I think the host is good too.

The end game is a bit flat though in my opinion. Give them 3 x 6 letter ones to make them earn the money I reckon, or at least when they get one right give them a decision to stick with the money they've won, or to gamble for the next one to win more.

My only critcism is that when you have one letter multiple times then it should indicate this.
Also some answers have more variations than others making an unlevel playing field at times
