As a live tour of the darts show proves you still can't beat a bit of bully, do you think Blind Date or You Bet should return?
Bullseye, perhaps the best ever darts-based gameshow to be co-hosted by an obese glove-wearing cow in an unflattering polo shirt – is back. Sort of. The revived version won't be classic ITV Bullseye, with Jim Bowen and Tony Green and speedboats that nobody ever won. Nor will it be the revived 2006 Challenge Bullseye, with Dave Spikey and Tony Green and holidays sponsored by unpronounceable websites that nobody ever won. Nor will it be the once-rumoured Justin Lee Collins-fronted Channel 5 Bullseye, which thankfully still doesn't exist.
Instead Bullseye is being revived as a touring regional theatre show. From Friday 14 October to Sunday 20 November, a makeshift Bullseye crew comprising Eric Bristow, Bob Anderson and John Lowe – along with new presenter Neil Wheatley – will traipse up »

Bullseye is to be revived for a theatre tour this autumn. The revival will feature darts stars including former world champions Eric Bristow, John Lowe and Bob Anderson. "Bullseye is one of the most successful quiz shows in TV history - it's great to be part of its return," Anderson told The Sun. The show originally ran between 1981 and 1995 and was presented by Jim Bowen, who will not host the theatre tour. Instead, stand-up comedian Neil Wheatley will take over as host. Audiences will reportedly compete for a £500 cash prize and items ranging from trouser presses to teasmades. (more) »
