I’m going to talk about a game show called “Chinese Poetry Congress190”. It plays on CCTV1 and some other TV channels. It’s a one-hour show that is broadcast191 at 10 pm every Friday. I’m crazy about192 Chinese poems, so I’m in love with this program. Whenever I have free time, I always watch it alone or with my family. They really enjoy it too.
This game show judges competitors193 to see who knows and has memorized the most Chinese poems. The participants 194 are between five and seventy years old. It also includes foreigners. The main goal is to beat the other opponents195 and win the huge prize. This show is so popular because audiences196 can also participate. They can win prizes by playing the game through a cell phone app.
I’m a big fan of this TV show for lots of reasons. For one, it’s really educational. I learned a lot
about Chinese poems, literary traditions197, and Chinese history just by watching it. It’s also a lot
of fun. After all, it’s a game show. Some of the contestants198 are super funny. It can definitely help
you relax while learning something. I can’t think of a game show that is better than this one.
