Fridays, 5:00 PM ET on Channel 4

60 minutes

Originally commissioned as part of the Channel 4 Mash Up night, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown has proved it deserves a run of its own. This combination of two of Channel 4's favourite shows brings together the best of both. The new series will see Jimmy Carr resume his role as host, with 8 Out Of 10 Cats team captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson playing the game.

The Best version of Countdown on TV. The Cast of 8 Out of 10 Cats brings a flare that is missing in the original.

Somehow the brilliant brain teasers of Countdown, combined with the comedians from 8 out of ten cats combine to make a show that's even better than the sum of its parts! A good portion of each episode is spent introducing each week's comedians and theur accompaniying mascots, which almost always have a hillarious story attached to them. If they actually get around to playing Coutdown, then the words and numbers challenges often provide highly amusing results (and plenty of bending the rules).

Team captains Sean and Jon are great and Jimmy Carr works as a likeable host with plenty of visual gags up his sleeves. The usual countdown team of Susie and Rachel play along with the comedians well and hold their own in their respective fields. A great all round comedy panel show that I never tire of watching!
