New six-part run starting tonight at 9pm! Love this show but so disappointed that we haven't seen any normal 8 Out Of 10 Cats series this year yet.

I was hoping for a 10th Anniversary 8 Out Of 10 Cats special a few months ago.

They're recording another 12 episodes of this between the end of May and the beginning of July - have they given up on the normal version altogether?

No. Countdown is still on every day.

Yes I noticed, the more the merrier I say. I love the Countdown episodes! I think they might just do the normal Cats one series a year now, I mean the Countdown episodes get more viewers so Channel 4 have obviously commissioned more of those over the normal series.

One or the other as far as I am concerned - watched this a couple of times and just found it silly.

Which is exactly why I like it. It's the best TV celeb quiz and you also get the chance to play.

I'm a big fan of "Catsdown". I did enjoy '8 Out Of 10 Cats', but perhaps it did start to get a little stale. I believe the addition of Rachel Riley to any show format would increase viewing figures dramatically.

It's a shame Joe Wilkinson doesn't do his guest spots anymore, I always found his absurd brand of humour to be quite amusing.

Who needs Joe when we can have Sean eat a bunch of whelks (and it's somehow funnier than Joe's ever been on the show)? Smarmy

Incredibly that's now two 9 letter words for Lee Mack in about 4 episodes. I don't even remember anyone else ever getting one on Cats does Countdown. Maybe Jon once though his 9 letter attempts are usually just made up crap. Anyone know?

That was amazing.
I wonder if the charity actually got the £10,000. Isn't that what they said?

Why isn't Jon on at the moment? Is he on a 6 month honeymoon or something.

I believe he may indeed have been on honeymoon when the current few episodes were filmed, yes. I think they may film 2 episodes a day in blocks of 2 or 3 days a time, hence being a smattering of episodes across the series rather than just one or two.
