Taking a look at the best, and worst, of today's TV, The Peter Serafinowicz Show hosts television's most futile game shows, including Heads Or Tails? and Which Hand Is It In?, and offers 'celebrity' interviews on O! News that can't be seen anywhere else.

Through his impressions of familiar faces, Peter creates a world in which the likes of Al Pacino and Simon Cowell mingle with his own quirky creations, such as the impressively incompetent private investigator Brian Butterfield.

Other characters include Michael-6 - the robot chat show host who struggles to understand and solve the problems his guests bring onto the show - and O News! anchor Kennedy St King.

Our Review: A mixed bag of sketches with slightly more hits than misses.

Yes, there is some padding and situations are repeated too often (e.g. robot Michael-6 becomes boring quite quickly) - however Serafinowicz's bumbling businessman character Brian Butterfield makes up for the negatives all by himself.

The show has been cancelled by the BBC so will not be returning.
