I've no idea what channel Taskmaster will end up on but, whichever it is, I really hope it retains pretty much the same format: with the same hosts and similar types of guests (i.e. mainly comedians and not reality or soap stars). Provided it does, then I really don't mind which channel it's on.

Remember it'll be the same company and the same team making the show wherever it ends up. Avalon produce it, and Alex Horne and Greg Davies are managed by them. They won't change and neither should the style of the show, Alex is exec producer and its very much his vision

Hilarious how when this was first reported everyone was bashing C4 and then when the rumours of a move to BBC One surfaced, they were worried that it wouldn't work because it'd be too mainstream and it'd be better on C4! The press release clearly indicates it was a move on behalf of the producers to get a wider audience.

Of course. Anything but mention the £ involved.

Sure. But again, a move on behalf of the producers. Not this idea of Channel 4 coming in and stealing it away that people got in their heads like with Bake Off. The production company wanted more money/exposure/whatever.
