List of They Think It's All Over episodes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of episodes from the satirical sport-based panel game They Think It's All Over.

From series 1 until series 5 the show was chaired by Nick Hancock, with team captains David Gower (and regular panellist Lee Hurst) and Gary Lineker (and regular panellist Rory McGrath) and a guest on each team. For series 6 & 7, Lee Hurst's position was switched with various celebrity guests such as Phill Jupitus & Alan Davies. From series 8 onwards Jonathan Ross replaced Lee Hurst permanently. From series 16 onwards David Gower and Gary Lineker were replaced as team captains by Phil Tufnell & David Seaman. From series 18, Ian Wright replaced David Seaman as captain. From series 19, Lee Mack became the new host and Boris Becker replaced Phil Tufnell as team captain, while Jonathan Ross was replaced by Sean Lock as the regular panellist on Boris' team for the 2006 specials.

The show was cancelled following series 19, although there were 2 specials in the summer of 2006 and a special episode aired live as part of 24 Hour Panel People in 2011, for which Hancock, Tufnell and Hurst returned (in spite of the fact that Tufnell and Hurst had been regulars at different points in the show).

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ a b Was also in the Feel The Sportsman round
  2. ^ In the Christmas special, the series was awarded to David's team after it was revealed that Gary and Rory had cheated in this episode's Feel The Sportsman round
  3. ^ Replaced Will Carling, who "...had decided to pull out at the last minute."
  4. ^ Jupitus stood in for Hurst
  5. ^ a b c d e f Christmas Special
  6. ^ Gary's team had actually won 22-17, but while everyone else in the studio wore their chosen Christmas outfits, Gary refused to wear his Little Bo Peep costume, so Nick penalised him 5 points, unless he wore it, which he declined, so as a tie-breaker, the teams were shown some footage of hamster drag racing, and had to guess which of the blue and red racer won. David's team correctly chose the red racer, giving them the win, despite Gary then desperately trying to put on the Little Bo Peep costume after the clip
  7. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w Guest captain in this episode
  8. ^ Gary's team had won the episode, but during the show, guest Rich Hall looked at one of the answer cards during The Name Game round, which originally saw Gary's team docked 3 points, but at the start of the following show, it was revealed that following more complaints, Gary's team were disqualified and the win was given to David's team.
  9. ^ Following the "debacle" involving the incident 2 shows previously, Gary was dropped as team captain for this episode for "bringing the show into disrepute".
  10. ^ All the panellists are dressed as pantomime characters. Gail Porter also appears as a Christmas fairy in-between rounds.
  11. ^ The 100th episode. David Gower and Gary Lineker switched places for this episode as Gary Lineker and Rory McGrath were caught cheating the week before.
  12. ^ Paul Merson was to guest captain, but had to pull out as his partner had just given birth.
  13. ^ David's team were declared the winners in the following episode
  14. ^ Again, Paul Merson was to guest-captain, but pulled out after being taken ill.
  15. ^ A former American soccer player turned comedian and broadcaster.
  16. ^ A variety of party games were played throughout the episode, including "Pin the Tail on the David Seaman", Hide-and-seek (in the studio audience) and Test Your Strength.
  17. ^ 70s Special. Everyone was dressed in 1970s clothes. Jonathan Ross dressed as Ziggy Stardust.
  18. ^ 80s Special. Everyone was dressed in 1980s clothes. Nick Hancock wore a mullet wig, Jonathan Ross dressed as Adam Ant and Rory McGrath as Boy George.
