Even though game shows first evolved in the United States, they have been presented in many different countries around the world.

Belgium[edit]

Brazil[edit]

Bulgaria[edit]

Canada[edit]

Canadian English-language game and quiz shows have often been aimed towards children and teenagers between the ages of six and 19. A majority of these game shows often run for 30 minutes in each episode. They often derive their formats from game shows produced in the United States, most of them having been run on Canadian networks such as CTV, Global and Citytv.

Although American game and quiz shows are popular in Canada, Canadian residents are not eligible to be contestants on some of them, Wheel Of Fortune, Jeopardy! and The Price Is Right being three notable exceptions. Unlike in the US, game show winnings in Canada are not subject to income tax (actually, residents of most countries aside from the US are not subject to income tax on game show winnings).[citation needed]

There are very few Canadian adaptations of American, British, and Dutch-originated quiz shows in the English language. Most, like versions of The Price Is Right, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy!, and Family Feud, are in French. Some English-language versions of these shows include Supermarket Sweep, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Deal or No Deal, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, and Cash Cab. There are also French-language versions of Deal or No Deal, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, and Cash Cab.
