Re: No More Studio Audience at Countdown Post Covid

Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy in the US will have audiences after the pandemic is over. They want to keep their fanbase. Countdown, however, will not have audiences then. They just want to alienate their daytime fanbase. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Countdown has run its course in dayt...

Re: ROBINSON TO HOST COUNTDOWN!!

Let's not forget her basic inability to ask questions in a coherent manner on The Weakest Link. E.g. if the question was "What is Countdown - a gameshow or a type of shoe?" she would say "What is Countdown, a gameshow or a shoe?" like all three things were part of a list and it led to confusion.

That might make up for the relative lack of female contestants (at least in the final stages - we haven't had a female quarter-finalist in the last 2 series.

Do you think having Anne Robinson presenting have any impact on the roles currentky being held by Rachel and Susie.
I dont have a problem with all female presenters, it might even encourage more women to take part.
But it doesnt look good from a diversity stand point

Oh wow! Well, I'm not surprised at that. When will Nick's contract end? I think Colin Murray would be great as the permanent host of Countdown! It'll be interesting to see if he remembers me from the last time I was in the studio. He was in Dictionary Corner then. He didn't say a word to me though.

I hope to bring back Coedi at some point, although it's far too soon to speculate when that could be. As for other events in 2020, I plan to go ahead w...
