Television show[edit]

Four series of the show have been made by Absolutely Productions. The first series, shown on the Paramount Comedy Channel, had six episodes and the subsequent series, all first shown on Channel 4, consisted of seven episodes. The second series was immediately repeated on the Paramount Comedy Channel after its initial broadcast.

The fourth series of the show was released on DVD in the UK in 2006.

Armstrong and Miller returned and made a new sketch show called The Armstrong and Miller Show. It fared better with critics and fans[citation needed]. The BBC filmed a pilot and a series was commissioned in 2006. The first BBC series was shown on BBC 1 in 2007, and the second series was shown in 2009.

In November 2010 the third series was shown in the UK on Saturday nights.
