University Challenge is a British television quiz show. It is hosted by Jeremy Paxman. It is an official spin-off of the College Bowl program, though its format is closer to common quizbowl format (i.e. bonuses all worth five points unlike College Bowl's variable value bonus). There is a musical clue at around the halfway point, and two picture clues about one-quarter and three- quarters of the way. It has come under fire for allowing different colleges of teams to play as separate schools (i.e. Oxford, Cambridge).
