About the show
Insert Name Here is a new British comedy panel game series that debuted on BBC Two on January 4, 2016. It is written by Will Ing and Paul Powell, presented by Sue Perkins, executive produced by Paul McGettigan, Dan Gaster and Michael Mannes, and produced by 12 Yard Productions and Black Dog Television. The series is set to contain six episodes.
The show joins a whole set of clever BBC Two quiz shows and has an exciting and original format. Each series is dedicated to answering questions about famous people. The people might come from any time period and any walk of life, but they always share one thing in common – their name. Comedians Josh Widdicombe ad Richard Osman act as team captains for two teams of three people competing on the show. The series is full of great jokes and anecdotes as well as curious facts about the people discussed.
Viewer reception and possible renewal
The show has been received warmly by the critics and viewers. It is amusing, funny and intelligent – what else can be expected from a panel game show? The chemistry is working, the atmosphere is jolly, the rules are a bit loose, but this doesn`t seem to seriously bother anyone on the show or in the audience, although it has been mentioned in a critical review as a negative point. Entertaining and full of fun trivia, Insert Name Here might be a little rough around the edges, but it`s a non-scripted series that`s two episodes into its first series – let`s forgive it some liberties that it takes, enjoy the show and hope for a renewal.
Updated March 11, 2016: On the wave of the success of the entertaining panel competition show`s first season, Insert Name Here has just been renewed for a second run. Some inventive (even more inventive!) twists are to be inserted into the fabric of the program, but we have yet to find out what they are. Otherwise the show will follow the same format, with all of the presenters (Sue Perkins, Josh Widdicombe and Richard Osman) returning to the comedy panel show. The first series of the entertainment program delivered excellent ratings of 1 million viewers per episode on the average. Stay tuned for a release date, and be the first to find when the next six half-hour episodes of delightful comedy and competition are slated to air.
