"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.
It was almost two years since the host of the original show left the BBC, ending his original talk show and The Film Programme, so it was good to see him in an all new chat show on ITV. Jonathan Ross here gives us his usual charming and comedic persona, it no longer has Four Poofs and a Piano and it has the breaks in between talking to the guests, but it is still a reasonable version of what we are used to. It is still the same format, three guests and a musical act for the end, jokes about gadgets and the week's news at the beginning and before introducing each guest, and Ross still being a great chat show host. Guests on the show have included Sarah Jessica Parker, Lewis Hamilton, Adele, Benedict Cumberbatch, The Saturdays, Alan Carr, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hugh Jackman, Stephen Fry, Peter Kay, Will Young, Dame Helen Mirren, Harry Hill, Louie Spence, Kasabian, Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan), Ewan McGregor, Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, Cee Lo Green, Lee Evans, Jamie Oliver, Lady Gaga, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell (video), Michael Bublé, David Walliams, Coldplay, Michael Sheen, Miranda Hart, Noel Gallagher and many more. Very good!
