However, from 26 September 2011, the show reverted to Mondays, due to strong competition on Friday nights.
In February 2012, it was announced that the 17th series of the show would be in a new, revamped format.
From series 8, there is also a new "Top 5" feature which consists of the Top 5 gadgets in a certain category.
At the start of the eleventh series, a new item was introduced, called the "Wall of Fame" where Ortis or Suzi and Jason pick their favourite gadget from a particular category that they think changed the face of modern gadgetry, and then Jon picks the one to win and go up on the wall.
The show is aimed at giving the mass consumer an insight into the gadget world and in addition, it aims to give enough information for the more "geeky" or knowledgeable audience, but still making it accessible to the more casual viewer.
It was called The Gadget Show: World Tour, and it started airing on 23 April 2012.
The new version of the show saw presenters Jason Bradbury and Pollyanna Woodward travelling the world to test the latest gadgets and partake in a number of challenges.
There are also several other recurring features (such as aforementioned "Top 5", and 'The Focus Group' - testing products with various groups of people, who vote for their best one) which are featured in episodes on a semi-regular basis.
The show also offers a competition, (answering a multiple choice question, by phone, SMS or postal entry) that gives the winner on some occasions up to 250 prizes.
