I'm really not sure if he's suited to the panel game format.

At least two of the guests are usually good value, but the need for lots of patented Brooker Rants is drowning them out.

I presume you mean Channel 4, not BBC Four?

Yep. Channel 4.

If it was on digital, I wouldn't be able to use the computer and watch it at the same time.

It's like someone took a not-too-good episode of Screenwipe, then added in a panel show to pad it out and fill whatever time they had available.

...nail. on. head.

Memo to C4: please don't ruin Charlie Brooker by over-exposure.

I'd say it's more memo to Charlie Brooker: learn to say 'no' sometimes.

I didn't think it was that bad. Though the funniest moments didn't involve inter-action - they were the Brooker rants and Jamelia and Herring's One Show links. It was, though, a good bit dumber than Screenwipe...
