Here is my best explanation:

'tv programme' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'some wag possibly inspiring hot' is the subsidiary indication.
'possibly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'inspiring' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'hot' becomes 'h'.
'somewag' is an anagram of 'gamesow'.
'gamesow' enclosing 'h' is 'gameshow'.
