It's because - maybe it's a fear by the channels - but there is a tendency to get comedians that are known for doing certain shows, that could have a kind of 'draw factor' to them, when it would probably be best, now, to start introducing lesser known comedians, newer comedians, even the ones that are slightly more well know, but don't appear on a TV show every month or so.

The only way to change the reputation, of 8 out of 10 cats for example, is to start having an influx of different comedians, even if they're doing it for the first time, doing this could then establish different comedians and actually create a 'TV comedy world' where there is are a lot of different choices and comedians on TV.

Buzzcocks is always hit and miss for me since it became a guest host thing.

The recent one with Lee Mack was gold.

I still watch 8 out of 10 cats because of Sean Lock and Jon Richardson. Would i lie to you sometimes is fun with Mitchell and Mack.

Mock the Week is unbearble now, the Christmas special was nothing special...

I've actually never been a huge fan of Mock The Week, but I agree, now it really is unwatchable. Full of D-grade comedians.

I really like Richardson on 'Cats. Never seen his stand up. Lock is gold in everything he's done though.

I recently watched Kevin Bridge's debut stand up show, and fuck me that was really, really funny.

I don't think the British panel shows are that bad.

Mock the Week isn't what it used to be but it's not terrible. the lack of Russell howard is helpful and Addison/Dennis/Jones/Flanagan etc all make for a reasonable show.

8 out of 10 Cats is still as good as it ever was really, the team captains are good and there will always be at least 1 guest you can enjoy to outweigh any you don't. Format still works and there is the added bonus of everyone ribbing on Jimmy for tax evasion.

I'll admit I don't watch Buzzcocks as much as I used to as I'm not too fond of the guest host system and there are a lot of poor guests on either team, but whenever I have watched it's been passable. I wouldn't record it if I wasn't gonna be able to see it, but I'd happily put it on if I'm not up to much.

HIGNFY has the guest host system sorted, even when the host is less than spectacular Merton and Hislop can carry the program. Couple that with a sensible choice of guests on each team and I'd say HIGNFY is the best weekly news based panel show we have.

Would I Lie to you is sorted pretty well Brydon/Mitchell/Mack have the dynamic sorted by now and they can make it workd with pretty much any guest host. Concept is still different enough that it makes for a good watch.

That and we also have QI, which is a little different but basically as good as it has always been.

Overall we're getting a pretty good lot out of that and there is a show for different kinds of people. I'll happily watch most of them.

Yeah, I don't think they're terrible, but they're not shows that I watch, or purposely put on my TV to watch.

What I said, I just meant generically, to shows that are down those kind of lines. Would I lie to you is pretty consistent.

I got told that Richardson's standup is terrible by people who like him on 8Oo10C.

Some comedians are just funny in one medium. Like I enjoy Noel Fielding as a person of panel/quiz shows but I saw him on Live At The Apollo and he was poor.

I thought it was okay, some parts were just utter genius. But at other times, everything he tried fell flat.

I always liked Noel Fielding on Buzzcocks, but fuck me I can't stand the shows he makes. I saw Phil Jupitus' stand up and that was pretty bad.
