Out of the Question is an Australian chat and game show hosted by comedian Glenn Robbins. The show features Robbins quizzing celebrity guests on current events and popular culture. Each episode is recorded at Melbourne's HSV-7 digital studios at Melbourne Docklands within 48 hours of its airing.
The show premiered on Thursday 31 January 2008 at 8:30 pm on the Seven Network. Despite lacklustre prime time ratings for the initial batch of seven episodes, a new series began airing from 29 September 2008 at a later 10:30pm timeslot.
Each week, several celebrity guests compete against each other in a three-round quiz revolving around current events and popular culture. In between questions, lighthearted discussion often takes place about the subject of the question. The first season featured three guests per episode, with each guest answering questions individually; the second season expanded the number of guests to four, with guests competing as pairs.
Robbins asks the guests a series of questions in turn for the first two rounds, while in the final round each guest or pair can buzz in at any time to answer. Each correct answer earns them a point, but in practice points are generally given out at Robbins' own discretion. The guest or pair with the most points at the end of the show wins and gets their name engraved on an Out of the Question trophy.
