Six to watch: panel show hosts

21 October 2010 7:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Never Mind the Buzzcocks is back tonight – but still without a permanent presenter. So what do the best anchors bring to a comedy quiz show?

Tonight Never Mind the Buzzcocks returns to our screens for its 24th series, with Phill Jupitus and Noel Fielding returning as team captains. The vacancy created by the departure of Simon Amstell, however, remains empty – meaning that once again the show is to have a different host each week. Last year the job of keeping scores and being rude to minor pop stars went to the likes of Frank Skinner, David Walliams, Frankie Boyle, Rhod Gilbert and Jack Whitehall. Tonight Mark Ronson will take the host's chair; next week it will be Catherine Tate behind the desk.

Guest hosts may well stop a show getting stale, but there's much to be said for having a trusty leader at the helm of a comedy panel show. »
