"Don't just watch the ads, win them!" Saturday Night Takeaway is a game show hosted by Ant and Dec, filled with stunts, sketches, and appearances from stars like Phillip Schofield, Alan Carr, Fearne Cotton, and many more.
The concept was good and the guests were very funny (This episode had Al Murray, Holly Valance and a few others I have never heard of before), but the "host" was a tool. It started off like an English version of the Aussie TV show 'Good News Week' and I thought it might have had a bit of potential, but after watching one episode I just wanted to gouge my eyes out and wear headphones playing white noise at high volume! He was not funny and the show seemed to revolve around his antics, yelling and stupid voices that just had me staring in disbelief. I do understand that the host is obviously playing some sort of character but it did not make it any funnier, perhaps if he was just being normal it would have had more appeal to me.
With a different host this show would be a lot better. It is clearly popular in the UK as it has survived for 8 seasons now, but I cannot get past the host, he just grates on me too much. I can see why channel seven (Aussie local station) ran it so late at night.
I have no intentions of watching another episode, I would rather be water boarded.
Sorry to the fans of this show, to which there seem to be many, but to me the host ruined too much!
