Hosts and production info
The Last Leg (previously known as The Last Leg with Adam Hills, and The Last Leg of the Year for the end-of the-year special episodes) is a multiple award-winning British satirical comedy and talk show that gives an alternative view of the news events of the day. It is broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK and on ABC in Australia. Australian comedian Adam Hills serves as the host, and Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker co-host. The 8h series of the show has premiered on June 9, 2016.
The irreverent program originated as a part of the London 2012 Paralympic Games coverage, becoming its own show after the games ended. The main host sums up the premise of his show in the following manner: “Three Guys with four legs talking about the week”. The series is broadcast live, and has an interactive aspect to it, where the audience can participate in Twitter polls. In January 2014 the hosts introduced a “Dick of the Year” mock prize, with Vladimir Putin awarded the honorable first prize, and with Katie Hopkins and Jeremy Hunt following suit.
Ratings and renewal potential
The Last Leg holds a solid 8.3/10 IMDb score, and is consistently popular with the viewers, attracting between a million and over two million viewers, with the current 8th series premiering to a very respectable 1.97 million fans.
