It Crowd fans rejoiced everywhere yesterday afternoon (November 17) as a Countdown contestant wore a Moss-themed T-shirt.
Asset manager Danny Davies won a legion of fans after wearing a shirt bearing the words: "Good morning, that's a nice tnetennba."
However, host Nick Hewer was seemingly unaware of the comedy reference, and Davies didn't help him out much.
When asked what he had written on his chest, Davies replied: "It's Tnetennba."
Viewers tweeted their approval of his geeky shirt, including none other than It Crowd creator Graham Linehan.
Davies later blogged about his day on the set of Countdown, explaining that the crew actually asked him to keep the shirt on.
"Whilst waiting in the Green Room for my show, I kept asking when I would go and get changed into my lovely ironed »
We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...
Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.
To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.
Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people, »
The actor and director also discussed his time shooting the failed pilot for the original Us remake on The Graham Norton Show.
"I was the only one [of the original British cast] dumb enough to do it," he said. "It was deeply weird.
"It was a bit like a play where everyone else had left. It was very odd."
Ayoade said of the new pilot: "I understand they are trying again, and now I'm out, there's a chance it will succeed. It was a strange experience."
Did you know that musical star Michael Ball has double the amount of blood in his body as that of the average human? It's what allows him to belt out those big notes.
If you watched Series 1 of Toast Of London then you'll already know that's true.
But if you didn't know and didn't watch, then that's entirely not your fault. After a strong pilot, Channel 4 took the first series of Matt Berry and Arthur Matthews' comedy about failing actor Steven Toast (Berry) and buried it in the late hour soil of Sunday nights, in a time slot so obscure you'd need a TV guide, compass, shovel, and remote to find it.
Fortunately the Rose D'Or committee still managed to unearth it on 4Od - no doubt »
I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

Judging by new photos from the upcoming hour, the task force’s latest case drives Liz to a hospital bed — and Mossad agent Samar Navabi isn’t looking so hot, either. (Something tells me the shady fella in the middle of the street has something to do with it.)
And when Red isn’t sitting by Liz’s bedside, it seems he’s bonding with a young boy (will »
