It is an intrinsically American format, the late-night talkshow, but Twitter comedian-turned-host Mo Gilligan has had a good go at bringing it home. The sketches are hit and miss, but the guests have been a solid selection of established names (Steve Coogan, Mel B, Danny Dyer) and relative upstarts (Maya Jama, Tom Davis), while Gilligan's easy confidence always carries the night. This is the last in the series; fingers crossed for a recommission.
