Production info and cast
Virtually Famous is a British comedy panel game show airing on E4 since July 2014. The current third series aired on E4 on January 14, 2016. The show is written by James Menzies and Henry Paker, produced by Talkback and Hungry Bear Media and executive produced by Dan Baldwin and Leon Wilson. The show`s format changed from 45 minute-episodes in the first series to 60-minutes for the third one. Kevin McHale from the US hit series Glee presents the show, although he`s admitted in an interview that he did not know what panel shows were when he was approached with an offer to host.
Two teams of three participants lead by Chris Stark and Seann Walsh compete in a contest with queries about everything that`s related to the Internet, particularly viral videos, memorable Twitter posts and short clips from Vine. The guests and the hosts engage in friendly and witty conversation as they comment on the presented material.
Current season and renewal prospects
Following the wrap-up of the very successful run of the 8-part first series, Virtually Famous was at once renewed for two series of 10 episodes each. The first series did exceptionally well, with an average of 461.000 viewers per episode, a significantly higher number than E4`s peak average. The entertaining banter of the comedians, the friendly atmosphere of the series, the variety of guests seems to make enough viewers, so we should relax, wait for an almost certain renewal and enjoy the show.
