Hosted by Jimmy Carr, with team captains Sean Lock and Phoenix Nights’ Dave Spikey, 8 Out of 10 Cats is an irreverent, irrelevant and revealing weekly topical panel show based on a huge series of opinion polls carried out around Britain. But these opinion polls are not for trivial stuff like voting intentions or attitudes to the Euro... Instead they’re designed to root out the more important issues of the day like "Who was voted the most orange UK celebrity?" or "What do you prefer, kittens or Christmas?" There’s topical stuff, unusual stuff, showbiz stuff and ridiculous stuff. Two teams of fearless, hard-hitting celebrity analysts compete to see who best understands what’s really going on in Britain today. Among this week’s guests are David Walliams, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Jordan. The show uses both existing and specially commissioned polls, all cunningly designed to set off endless pointless arguments which, let’s face it, can only be a good thing.
