Yes, quiz night is back. All we need now is Mastermind to complete the set.
Yes, I agree, all very worthy programmes - except I wish VCM would cut down on her "Jokes" which make me cringe at times. But, as we have seen before on Ab, humour is a very personal thing and no doubt many folk enjoy them.
Marvellous! Thank you.

I like Victoria - and her jokes.
Thanks for the reminder, helly :-)
her jokes might be better if there was an audience to react to them. As it is, there's tumbleweed after she gives the punchline
/// I like Victoria - and her jokes. ///

Why doesn't that surprise me - the only thing we seem to agree on is religion, LOL
Ooops, that only applies to her jokes, I do like her .
Thank you
Canary, VCM writes a funny and thoughtful TV column in the Telegraph on Saturdays. Not a paper I normally get but I pick up a free one at Waitrose and much enjoy reading her.
Something to look forward to - thanks.
Delighted. These programmes, plus Mastermind, make Mondays special for us.
Love UC, but i find OC far to pleased with itslelf, and the contestants all seem really nerdy.

I tend to watch to keep Mrs Hughes company, but I can't say I really enjoy it very much.
Has Clive Myrie started MM yet?

If so, I can watch again, because I like the show but I loathe John Humphries, so haven't watched since he has been on.
Surely Victoria Coren-Mitchell is sending herself up knowingly and deliberately when she cracks her jokes. The only other thing she could do is wink at the screen. She’s too bright, perky and clever to be so naive as to think the jokes are really funny.
Also the new series of Brain of Britain started this afternoon with a Champions special.
this just in: i got 3 answers in the first two rounds - i'm applying to join the nerds :)

Bednobs - fantastic. Well done. I think that VCM always has a twinkle in her eye and her 'jokes' are meant to be awful, that's why she does them.
helly, you're quite right - and the resulting 'tumblewood' just adds to the delicious awfulness. :o)
naomi - // helly, you're quite right - and the resulting 'tumblewood' just adds to the delicious awfulness. :o) //

It does appear that some viewers think the 'jokes' are genuine, and awful, and others see that they are 'ironic', which to me adds to my perception of a programme that is far too pleased with itself to actually be entertaining.
It's meant to be about challenging, hard questions that make you think, designed primarily for quiz nuts, as well as celebrating the weird and quirky. Why wouldn't it be pleased with itself?
