This is the kind of quiz families would probably enjoy playing at Christmas in their living rooms. Whether it’s worth an hour of primetime television is another matter.
Ben Miller doesn’t look the world’s most comfortable quiz-show host as he introduces some sitcom-loving, big comedy names in four teams – Jennifer Saunders and Julia Sawalha, Stephen Mangan and Nina Wadia, Jessica Hynes and Chris Addison, and Lee Mack and Nigel Havers.
Everyone looks as if they’re having a whale of a time, which is very nice for them but feels a bit exclusive if you’re sitting at home, watching. But the brilliant Lee Mack keeps it going with some kneecapping wit and there’s a fantastic sitcom medley played on the piano by composer Howard Goodall. See how many you can get. It’s not as easy as you might think.
Four teams of celebrities test their knowledge of sitcoms in this one-off panel show presented by Ben Miller, with rounds including Name that Theme Tune, Guess the Unsung Sitcom Star and Mime it Like Mr Bean. Absolutely Fabulous stars Julia Sawalha and Jennifer Saunders take on Nigel Havers and Not Going Out's Lee Mack, while Stephen Mangan and Nina Wadia are up against Chris Addison and Jessica Hynes.
