Couch Potato

Never Mind The Buzzcocks

ABC Comedy, Wednesday, 10.26pm

This show produces some of the best in British comedy in the form of a panel game based around pop music.

Basically, think Spicks and Specks, only British and a bit funnier.

Team captains Phill Jupitus and Noel Fielding, alongside their teams of guest panellists, answer a series of questions related to music during themed rounds.

That’s the serious side, and then there’s plenty of banter.
