    I thought her neck looked too thin, she needs to loosen her band a bit.

    Fucking. Ace. Great show, Fern Brittan wasn't great, but not too bad really. Top opening line too!

    I don't like the fact they seem to have settled into a rut of using the same 'guest hosts' over and over again for the past few series.

    Fern Brittan was cack. She got some great jokes and totally destroyed them in the delivery.

    Which is why they need a fixed presenter. The show is still hit and miss because of it.

    It was always hit or miss..definitely more miss of late though.

    They need a presenter with a really dry sense of humour to slot in there

    The whole "it's funny cause the presenter fluffed the line and ruined the joke" thing has really run its course. Deayton made even average jokes really funny.

    Alexander Armstrong is still the best bet for a permanent host. He's presented it more times than any of the other guest presenters, and with good reason. I'd be surprised if he didn't present another one this series.

    Personally, Martin Clunes was always my favourite guest presenter. Of course, that does rule him out as a guest panelist, which he is arguably better at still...

    I'm giving up on this show. It's just awful now.

    Tom Baker was fucking terrible. The show was supposed to be a satirical look at the weeks news, not "let's all laugh at the presenter". Deayton was transparent. The jokes were about the news, everything was about the news, and that's what made it funny. He lost his job after shagging a hooker and disrupting the show after Merton and Hislop did nothing but take the piss out of him during the episode. And they've completely failed to notice that this is the exact thing that's happening every week on the show now.

    Yep, it was shite this week. Suffers particularly badly if you happen to switch over to it form the Daily Show which is ace at the moment.

    It is pretty poor now, the only good thing about it is probably Paul Merton, he always has the best random jokes that make me laugh.

    Though Hislop was being a bit of a twat in that last episode.

    Yeah he was. Seemed he totally agreed with the reaction to the Ross/Brand incident last week.

    Also, he got his facts completely wrong I reckon. Young people complained about it? Like bollocks did they.

    The one before this weeks was great I thought, could just be me though.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Yep, a really, really tedious episode this week. I shared the curly guy on Paul's team's irritation at Tom Baker. There's nothing more annoying than some old eccentric making a tit of themselves. I didn't like Hislop's holier than thou attitude regarding the Brand/Ross thing either.

    I thought Hislop made some interesting points about the Brand / Ross business and that clip from breakfast news with Bill Oddie being a spoilt little knob was worth it alone.

    True that, I loved the BBC presenter (forget his name) asking if he can be tipped overboard :D

    What is it with bill oddie? I remember seeing him on some comedy panel show where he seemed both cantankerous and quite pissed. Maybe he should stop doing TV if it pisses him off so much or maybe he is just a miserable old git?

    I quite enjoyed tom baker as a presenter though he certainly was hamming it up as usual. I do agree that it is probably time to find a permanent presenter who can read autocue and deliver terrible puns and jokes now. The whole guest presenter idea was fun for a while but has run its course now.

    They should just bring Deayton back. I doubt many people even remember what he did now, much less care.

    He's a great presenter, I agree they should bring him back. Provided he could handle the inevitable jokes made at his expense like the last time he was on.

    lots of coke and hookers if I remember correctly.

    I didn't care what he was up to in his own time back then and I care even less now.

    I reckon Ellie Gibson would make a great presenter.

    He could "handle" it last time. He handled it fine.

    It was the other two. Getting rid of him was the only way to stop Merton and Hislop constantly berating him. They effectively hounded him out of a job.

    Stephen Fry refuses to go on the show anymore, in protest of Deaytons sacking. Will Self has also refused to go back on the show because it's become too juvenile and shit.

    If they decide to have a permanent presenter I don't think you could do better than David Mitchell, he was perfect I thought.

    Aye, was very good. And skinny! Better not be filming Peep Show any time soon...

    I still think it's great. Some pretty cheap gags, but still funny nonetheless

    David Mitchell was fantastic, but then he pretty much always is. It'd be nice if they did settle on him as a permanent presenter for it, but I don't think it's likely to happen (or even if he'd accept the job).

    He was indeed great.

    That bird on Hislop's team was bloody useless though I thought.
  • Deleted user 19 December 2008 23:05:02
    So apparently Clarkson assaulted Ian Hislop and drew blood.

    Haven't watched it yet - just got in from ze pub and was told it. So I shall be hastily loading iPlayer.
