TV Totty of the Week

25 Oct

Noel Fielding has the honour of being my TV Totty of the week this week.

He is awarded not so much for his looks, style or bravery (as has been the case in the past), but for his shining genius as evidenced in the new series of Never Mind The Buzzcocks.

I was sceptical when he joined the show – I was a real fan of Bill Bailey and am not generally a fan of change. I was wrong. I should have known I would be as I always loved The Mighty Boosh, but I just didn’t think that style would work on a panel game.

I maintain it wouldn’t. What’s great is that we get to see more of Noel as a normal person, if that’s not too bizarre a concept to get your head round. He takes the piss out of celebs, is a bit weird (but not too weird) and looks like he’s actually having fun, which is a nice break from the norm.

Never Mind The Buzzcocks is on BBC2 Thursdays at 10pm.

    I think Noel’s great on Buzzcocks. I do miss Bill Bailey, who was in his element on the show, but Noel’s a brilliant replacement.

    As a guest presenter, though, I did think Mark Ronson was dreadful. The poor fella had zero sense of comic timing.

    He was better than I expected though (that says nothing for my comic expectations of the man).

    I don’t think any of the guest hosts have particularly shone, although it’s true some were a lot better than others.

    Catherine Tate hosts this week and I have high hopes for her after her ditzy appearance last year.
