By far the worst big fat quiz, not because the jokes were weak but because they were disgusting and juvenile. It may have been better if JAMES CORDEN and JACK WHITEHALL didn't get drunk on air, (they said a few controversial things). It started off well Richard Ayoade being his usual ridiculous self and Jimmy Carr doing a trademark offensive gag. But about half an hour in it all started to go pear shaped. Well actually it was more melon shaped. A rotten melon with big chunks torn out of it and it s filled with rude humour like mocking the queen which will never go down well. Towards the end it got a little better with Richard Ayoades hilarious answer WASPS which was quickly dismissed as wrong. The following night the papers went crazy with articles about complaints on the shows rudeness and many people said that CORDEN and WHIEHALL should be banned from TV appearances for a very long time. But they both saw what they had done wrong and WHITEHALL even quit drinking. Although this wasn't a very acceptable piece of television it had some good jokes mainly from Ayoade and is still worth a watch.
