8 Out Of 10 Cats

E4 and Channel 4 and More4 panel show based around statistics. 202 episodes (22 series), 2005 - 2020. Stars Jimmy Carr, Rob Beckett, Katherine Ryan, Aisling Bea and others.

Series 21, Highlights Special is repeated on Saturday 4th April at 1am.

Series 1, Episode 6


This episode was recorded on the 7th July 2005 - the day terrorist bombings hit London. As a result, and for obvious reasons, the usual first round which focuses on topical events was replaced with 'What's The Poll'. The reason for this was not mentioned.

As the transport network was closed down much of the audience couldn't make it to the recording. The audience members who had turned up for the cancelled Mock The Week episode (also due to be recorded that night at BBC Television Centre) were used to fill the gaps.
