Format and cast
Gogglebox is a British reality documentary television series that follows ordinary Brits as they sit with their families and friends to watch British television shows. Produced by Studio Lambert, famed for such shows as Wife Swap, Faking It and Secret Millionaire, and executive produced by Tania Alexander, known for Seven Days and Undercover Boss, the program first debuted on Channel 4 on March 7, 2013. Series eight premiered on September 23, 2016.
Every episode of Gogglebox features a recurring cast of Britain’s most avid, opinionated and sharp-tongued TV viewers as they watch and comment on the best and worst television shows of the week. The series is filmed in the viewers homes by two small HD remote-control cameras and operated by a small team set up in the production control room in another part of the house. A new family appeared in the current installment along with the returning cast, and the incoming Delaney-Edwards clan did not become an instant hit with the audience, and is universally branded as posh.
Current season, spin-offs and renewal prospects
Series 8 of Gogglebox debuted with 3.53 million viewers in Live+1, edging up to 3.54 for the following week. The numbers are lower than in the previous series, yet still very strong. Throughout its five seasons, Gogglebox has been nominated for a number of awards. In 2014 it won the coveted BAFTA Award in the “Reality & Constructed Actual Programme” category, the Broadcasting Press Guild Award and swept up the National Television Award in 2015 and 2016. A runaway hit in the U.K., the series has spun off American, Australian and Canadian versions. A junior version of the show, Gogglesprogs, has debuted in the UK as a special on Christmas in 2015, was very warmly received, and was followed by a full-length series in 2016. There is also talk of another spinoff, Google Teens, which will feature teenagers watching television on their smartphones. So will U.K. audiences see series 9 of Gogglebox? There have been no formal plans made thus far, but there`s perfect reason to believe that it will continue its triumphant broadcast.
