Hot House made very little sense as to the merit of testing sports stars against each other and also took way too long.
Noel's brother (i.e. Mr Blobby without the costume) was not funny.
Gunging half the audience completely unsettled them and Noel had lost them after that.
Cash for Questions was dire. How the person at home was meant to direct them when the cameras all kept moving and spent half the time pointing at a wall.
It's not at all surprising that this is where the series became stale. And yet strangely I'm quite intrigued as to really how stale it is going to become.
