Panel games [Jan. 8th, 2010|09:39 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Here in the UK, particularly on BBC2 Television or on BBC Radio 4, we have cosy little panel games where no-one particularly cares who wins, and the object of the exercise is just for the panel (and audience) to have a good time. I'm thinking particularly of games like "Have I Got News For You", "Argumental", or "QI".

Here at Spencer Towers we're wondering if there's anything similar coming out of the USA. The nearest equivalent we can think of is "Whose Line Is It Anyway" which made it to both sides of the Atlantic. Are there others?

When I worked in the States in 2005 the US version of Whose line is it Anyway was on a lot and each week the host, Drew Carey, had to explain at the beginning of the show that the scoring system was just for fun!

One time Greg Proops swapped with him to be the host and immediatly announced that if you didn't understand the scoring system you should write to CBS and they'll explain it to you. At which Drew Carey doubled over laughing.
