8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown

Fridays 9.30pm

Show Synopsis

8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown follows the format of Countdown, with its compulsive play along factor as a familiar spine, but is packed with comic appearances and content that viewers wouldn’t ever see on regular Countdown: the show’s opening when Jimmy Carr affectionately roasts all the participants, a comic discussion of the players’ preparation and funny mascots for the show, visual gags while the Countdown clock runs down, and comics showcasing funny items in Dictionary Corner.

The show is hosted by Jimmy Carr, with team captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson and features Rachel Riley and Susie Dent on maths and dictionary duty respectively.
