Basically, quiz shows as partaken in by comedians and other media personalities.

Cody and I spoke about making this thread, so here it is. More often than not these shows are entertaining in some way and can be great showcases for comedic talent. I don't actually watch all of them, but I've done by best to provide a basis for a comprehensive list of current/recent ones; if anyone has a suggestion I'll add it.

Oh, man, you went for it. Nice work, dude. I was really slacking on getting this made. Hope people get into some stuff due to the thread.

Celebrity Juice is one the worst TV shows I've ever watched, but infuriatingly it's really popular.

Avoid it like the plague.

Don't really have any to add to that list, it's pretty comprehensive, as far as I can tell anyway. There's a few I know of that aren't on there, but haven't watched, like The King Is Dead , They Think It's All Over and A League Of their Own, but I can't vouch for any of them.

Noel gets way too weird for me sometimes (Luxury Comedy is SO fucking out there; even I can't do it), but man, he's easily my favorite part of Buzzcocks. He has chemistry with basically everyone that ever comes on the show.

8 Out of 10 Cats is a great one. I love Jimmy Carr and both team captains are consistently hilarious.

Maybe The Last Leg as well. It's a new one and I haven't seen it, but it seems along those lines and Adam Hills is funny.

First time one of my threads has ever been spammed, I think. Feels good.

I added a few more to the list anyway, including George's. One or two are probably kind of nebulous inclusions though.

The Gruen Transfer. Australian panal show that focuses on advertisements. I really love it and its host, Wil Anderson. It has a spinoff, Gruen Planet, but I've yet to dig into it.

I'm obsessed with panel shows, glad you made this thread. I first found Buzzcocks because of my love for Noel's work and it opened me up to all the rest. Favorites are Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, QI, WILTY, and 8OO10C. Found some of my all time favorite comedians through those shows.

edit: oh, and big fat quiz each year. best.

Recently it's only been aired at the ends of years, I think, so I'm assuming not for a little while. With the BBC we probably won't know until a week or two beforehand anyway, hah.
