Take Six is an Irish television movie show which ran on Channel 6 from 30 March 2006 until 31st December 2008. The show was commissioned by Channel 6 from Rumble Films and was produced and directed by Mike Smith and Dave Fanning. The second series was produced by Monford Productions for the channel.

The show looked at new releases, reviews the top 10 films of the week by cinema box office and DVD releases, as well as various interviews with the movies stars and producers. The show also contained competitions where viewers have the chance to win movie related prizes usually by answering movie related questions.

On 14 February 2008, Channel 6 decided to go in a different direction with the show, replacing Taragh Loughrey-Grant - who moved RTÉ as online entertainment and arts editor - with three new presenters; Sarina Bellissimo - of Spin 1038's movie show We Love Movies, Sean Munsanje - who is also a reviewer for We Love Movies as well as FM104 and Elsa Jones - from blogcritics.org.


Take six has had several specials such as:


Take six has a different competition every week, which is usually a DVD but sometimes will have bigger competitions like they did for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - were they sent people on the Indiana Jones experience - or The Holiday were they sent people to L.A.


Take Six was cancelled on 5 January 2009, along with several other Channel 6's shows, as it was bought by TV3, and renamed 3e.
