Pacy comic show which combines interviews with stunts

Author: WuTan Zanzernin from Spain
12 December 2012

Evening show where light-hearted celebrity interviews are combined with demonstrations of magic, scientific novelties, stunts and challenges. Pablo Motos, the host, is sharp witted, steers the show along solidly and bravely endures a lot of jokes at his own expense. The show uses a small panel of repeating presenters who provide short sections and usually each show has one celebrity guest who is invited to participate in various challenges and stunts. Spanish guests know what to expect however non-Spanish guest celebrities can be thrown by the shows format as it doesn't resemble a U.K/U.S talk show. Some celebrities however have thrown themselves into the show in a good-natured way and provided memorable nights entertainment, e.g. Hugh Jackman and Will Smith.

Probably... the worst late show in Spain combined with the worst English celebrities interviews

Author: la_fleur from Spain
22 April 2009

Last Monday I saw the interview that the Spanish comedian Pablo Motos did to Jorge García ( well known for playing the character of Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes in the American series Lost.

As a Spaniard I felt pretty ashamed and disrespect the way the interviewer treated García. He mocked him about the poor Spanish he speaks despite his surname, he did bad jokes about lost and what is worse he compared him with an obese local singer we have in Spain.

The rest of the interview García was pretty annoyed, looking forward to finish the sooner the better the interview, and he trying to cut the crap from Motos.

The rest of the program was pure rubbish. An actor-comedian dress as a crazy scientist (a completely nonsense) revealed the audience several spoilers about the current 5th season of lost, which has never been aired in Spain.

What I'm really surprised is that the managers of this television company, called Cuatro, let Motos perform interviews to English and American famous people when he doesn't know to speak a single word in English.

In general this show is not funny, they don't even make good jokes. It's not worth seeing it, unless you are a immature childish kid.
