Replacing Jon with someone who is bad at the game worked better, because the teams were more equal. I don't mind Sarah Millican, but I don't find her as funny as Jon.

It's weak on this show. It's better in 8oo10Cats and his live stand-up. I agree with degsyhufc that he's doing it partly from boredom. Like I said earlier, a lack of engagement with the...

Part of what makes Lee good in this is that he still wants to win, and is actually pretty good at it. If Jon stayed and Lee took Sean's place instead, that would give Jon some competition and he...

I'm coming to really like Rob Beckett. He's sharp and quick witted, behind that stupid persona.

Nice to see Suzie come out from behind her desk, even if only momentarily.

I'm not surprised. Have you seen her autobiographical documentaries, Her Master's Voice and Clowning Around? She's open on both. The first is better than the second, and really quite twisted. In the...

Apparently it gets better audience figures than either.

The mouthpiece she used is a standard part of her stage act. She usually uses it on a member of the audience. For example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3vBYHvG2wE.

I like her, but I don't think she has enough material to do TV.

I'm guessing the difference is because she worked backwards and you worked forwards. Working backwards, start by saying 836 + 4 is 840, which is a good first step because it obviously has a lot of...

It's just very contrived. The humour rarely arises from the words or the numbers; it arises from things like the mascots and the skits Jimmy does during the clock.

On chat shows, he is rarely the first to bring it up, but if someone else does he obviously has a lot of material ready. Which is fine. On this show nobody else brought it up so race wasn't mentioned...

It's the shear volume of material they have to find. Needing to think up a mascot each week, for example. That must have become a real chore. Or finding activities for Jimmy to do in 30 seconds....

First, on a good day, she's the most beautiful woman on British TV. Second, she's very intelligent. Third, she has a sense of humour (I suspect this show exists because she wanted to draw a cock and...

The very fact that he has written an autobiography shows he has some facility with words. Much of his humour is based on it, too. For that reason it's reasonable to expect him to be better than...

I was surprised when I learned it was sometimes impossible. I'd assumed they had a computer verify there was a solution before displaying the target.

I was also surprised when, in a recent episode,...

I was interested to learn that Jo Brand is good at this; enough to go on the proper show multiple times.

I fast-forwarded through it. I had been prepared to like David O'Doherty but quickly found his humour very weak. That left me with a conundrum, because he was paired with Susie Dent, but she wasn't...

It's usually something rude, often referencing one of the guests. As such it does constitute a joke.

Suzie Dent made those bits work for me.

Jimmy Carr is someone who plays it safe? Have you seen him live? He's not very PC. What do you mean by "safe"?

That would defeat the object. What they need to do is make it funnier. (Some) people will put up with a lack of political correctness if it is funny.

You seem to have contradicted yourself there. Given the days were displayed on her fridge, it's hard to see how Kazran's father could be ignorant of them (even if he didn't post them himself).
