Richard Osman

Broadcast

Remarkable (part of EndemolShine group) for BBC Two, 4 September 2017 to present

Synopsis

Four celebrities are given quizzy things to do by Richard Osman.

A selection of four celebs take on rounds of quizzes, always with a twist. Some are general knowledge questions where the answers rhyme. Some are general knowledge questions where the answer is an anagram of part of the question.

This week's celebs at play.

Other rounds are more inventive. We might see the initial letters of a song lyric, in the original rhythm. Another round - played in pairs - invites guesstimates for a number and takes the average for the pair.

There are visual rounds, locate an item on a picture, or place somewhere on a map. And every show ends with "Answersmash", blending a picture with a definition.

Crème caramel Giedroyc.

The show is impeccably cast: two men, two women. At least one familiar to the older viewer, at least one modern comedian from Mock the Week, at least one family entertainer. Richard Osman asks questions written with verve and wit.

A daily prize is drawn from the House of Games stall of stuff, with the winner lifting the House of Games Winners' Trophy.

Daily prizes: Lightshade, umbrella, shoehorn, binoculars, water bottle, all branded with the show's logo.

We liked this show a lot, it hit just the right notes for 6pm and shifted well to late evening. The three-week initial run became a bit too repetitive towards the end, perhaps there could be some more variety when the show comes back.
