A weekly topical panel show based around 'opinion polls, surveys and statistics'. It is hosted by Jimmy Carr, and the regular team captains are now Aisling Bea and Rob Beckett.

The teams thrash out the hot topics of the week by examining surveys, opinion polls and statistics; discussing both silly and serious stuff. Subjects include showbiz gossip, world politics and even the weather.

Until 2016, Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the team captains. Previously, the comedian opposing Lock was Jason Manford, and before that it was Dave Spikey.

The show used to be shown on Channel 4, before being moved to More4. It's now on E4.
