Things started badly for TV comedy in 2008, with ITV1's Paul Merton-fronted series Thank God You're Here. Based on an Australian show, it involved celebrities having to improvise their way around a comedic scenario that would always begin with the eponymous phrase. Merton seemed slightly out of place here and the standard of humour frankly wasn't that high.
