Boring, self-obsessed, slightly addled Someone really needs to pull the plug on Hewer. CDenthusiast12:33pm Sat 27 Apr
Replace Nick Hewer Please replace Nick - he no sense of humour and is completely out of place. Watcher11:57pm Tue 9 Apr
capital letters A man has been disallowed the word English because it needs a capital letter. All letters used are capitals!? padantic3:28pm Mon 8 Apr
Numbers selection Why does Rachel always choose the same number tiles every game? She never chooses the tiles on her extreme left and almost always chooses the middle one from second column on her right. It's driving me mad. Am I only one who sees this? Does no-one check these things? Ashtonian2:50pm Thu 28 Mar
new format. We hate the new format.
Why did you have to change?
Think Nick is the best presenter we have had! Granny B2:42pm Thu 28 Mar
Rachel might well be pining to start a family and those high numbers reflect her subconscious desire for inflation. Amateur psychologist3:25pm Tue 26 Mar
Ridiculous numbers I generally like the progamme, but Rachel has started using ridiculously high numbers to solve the numbers game, and twice this week she's done it when it was totally unnecessary and easy to solve otherwise. Is she doing it to impress? I'm not impressed. Su2:21pm Thu 28 Feb
Nick Hewer Please please replace this old buffoon He not only makes me annoyed with his comments, but must irritate the heck out of the contestants with his inane banter during the geme. Joanne4:09pm Fri 8 Feb
Rachels Zip On 04/02/2013 Did Rachels Zip break on her dress or was it a badly designed dress as you could see what looked like her underware. Too tight dresses4:55pm Mon 4 Feb
Ladifies Shouldn't Susie have allowed the word ladyfies on Tuesday's show. She said ladify was in the book, but not ladyfies. It is a verb so should be allowed IMHO Cloverjo7:54pm Wed 16 Jan
Great I love everything about it simpsoap0110:28am Sun 13 Jan
Still there? Checked this week to see whether N.H. is still there.
Will tune in again in 6 months time when hopefully he will have been replaced. JB6:24pm Tue 8 Jan
Unbearable guests Gyles Brandreth must top the list by light-years. Why do they have him back again and again - to tick everyone off? SueM2:57pm Mon 19 Nov
I cannot stand Rachel She seems to think the sun shines out of her ****.
Horrid Woman. long time viewer, Not anymore2:32pm Mon 19 Nov
Nick Nick Hewer has made the programme watchable again, quite liked Jeff Stelling but Nick is top man, definitely best since the irreplaceable Richard W. deejay12:53pm Wed 31 Oct
Nick's OK He is light years ahead of the gruesome Jeff Stelling. Noone can replace Richard Whitely, but at least my husband watches the programme again! SueM3:26pm Sat 27 Oct
Replace him! I can barely stand to watch Countdown any longer. Nick Hewer seriously makes me want to heave! His chit chat is so unimaginituve and he rarely shows any genuine interest in contestants or guests. Bramble4:02pm Wed 24 Oct
Too much idle chit-chat That man Hewer is killing this excellent show. Too much pointless crap talked at the beginning, when he should be getting on with it. Getting to the stage where there's a little bit of game between lots of bullsh**.
Get us a new anchorpersonů. BigK4:22pm Tue 23 Oct
dopeys! My mum got the conumdrum in no seconds omlit3:54pm Tue 9 Oct
Lord Sugar When will you replace the sugar yes man..please ian mearns4:19pm Mon 1 Oct
The Emperor's New Suit How come we can all see what the producer can't? Time for the producer to go as well as Hewer! Cruise control4:55pm Mon 17 Sep
so upset..... Rachel Riley has bad breath, I was lucky enough to meet her, But she really had horrid breath, Really a huge disappointment because i up until that point thought she was lovely :( never meet a hero12:28pm Thu 13 Sep
Countdown How much longer must we suffer Nick Hewer, who spoils a good programme ?
He is a bland, boring, 'out of place' personality.
I will recommence watching when he is replaced, which hopefully for everyone, will be very soon. John B.2:56pm Thu 23 Aug
Dump the presenter Nick Hewer. how the hell was he chosen? I think they could have pulled a random tramp off the street and they would do a better job of presenting ChrisD10:18pm Mon 23 Jul
Response I agree doubletake - about time more ladies were presenters. Get sick of the same old male faces. Also, let's have Rachel in a dress which fits !!! Crystal3:16pm Fri 20 Jul
Countdown Rachael might be slim, clever and pretty BUT who dresses her. Her dress today was very nice but far too tight - she looked like a question mark !! Crystal3:47pm Thu 19 Jul
Boring, boring and boring Please let us see the last of Nick Hewer. He has no personality, he repeats himself constantly and he makes me want to puke. Thank goodness for Sky Plus. He is wizzed forward before he utters the dreaded words "tick tock time". Ugh. Circe3:07pm Wed 18 Jul
Irritating Guests? Who is choosing the guests for this year? many are so irritating and certainly are not funny in any way.We have started taping and fast forwarding when the so called guests start rambling on.No more Jo brand ,Penny Smith and over the hill Newscasters and the rest of the boring and Irritating so called celebs. A.N.Other8:15pm Fri 13 Jul
Noone has done it better There has never been anyone who could replace Richard and Nick is no exception. Why not try a female presenter for a change - it would be a first as there is not a quiz show on telly that is not fronted by a man unless you count Ann Robinson, now there's an idea. doubletake11:41pm Sun 1 Jul
I don't rate Nick Hewer either, but what really interests me is Rachel's butt, which no longer sticks out more than her chest. Has she had surgery, or is she wearing an impossibly tight girdle? Vivelarepublique!3:12pm Wed 20 Jun
regular viewer Exactly - he is simply not a presenter and has no sense of rhythm, nuance or cadence, as is witnessed whenever he cuts across audience applause. The nearest he gets to noticing a game is to look at the scores and make an observation triter and more obvious than the average footballer's. Talking of which, Countdown is now like football - everything about it is hideous apart from the game itself 12string8:04pm Mon 11 Jun
Nick Spewer (spews bile) Nick Hewer can be summed up in 1 word - Beige.
Someone get the minions at the OED to rewrite the definition of Beige, simply add a picture of Nick bbc is free, if you know the law3:17am Sat 2 Jun
Lesley Garrett GET HER OFF for God's sake!! She's driving everybody mad with her promotional, self indulgent warbling!! JOHNTILE5:45am Sat 26 May
Counting down to Nick Hewer getting replaced hewer remains devoid of warmth, personality and presenting skills. He doesn't let others talk much and seems uninterested and disengaged when they do get a chance. His own banter is invariably abrupt, tedious, disjointed, irrelevant and self-agrandising. He makes a mockery of the term host as he fails to display any of the friendliness or warmth the word host implies. Hope he is replaced soon as he makes it pretty difficult to even enjoy a show that I have loved since childhood. regular viewer4:49pm Wed 23 May
Sewer does he think he is? Nick "my friend Lord Sugar', 'I've been on a cruise recently' my 27 tractors to take Rachel to her wedding on' Hewer is bad enough but this weeks guest Jenny chocolate Eclair puts the icing on this dire cake. Dog with litter tray4:19pm Wed 11 Apr
Still no legs Rachel is still not showing those gorgeous legs. Murray2:53pm Mon 9 Apr
I cant take it anymore! Nick is dreadfull!!! Its also slightly impacted on my enjoyment of The Apprentice. Nick has ruined Cuntdown! goldielocks4:22am Thu 5 Apr
Hewer does he think he is? It's like channel 4 have found everybody's most annoying person from around the christmas afternoon board game to host this one (well sit there and come out with ridiculous comments, name or place he's been to drop or tell us what stupid thing he owns, that is rather than what could be called hosting - more like boasting ). Can you take this one further Suzie, 8 letter word up on the board only a Q left and no U...is he even aware of what's going on around him. At least previous hosts did try to play some of the games. As for conveying any sincerity that he has real interest in anything anyone else has to say then he hasn't convinced me. Dog with a Dictionary9:59am Mon 2 Apr
the show may be crap but the presenters are cheap. chinaman.10:27pm Sun 1 Apr
Not the same since Richard (RIP) & Carol left Nick Hewer has no charisma, personality or charm.
He seems to think he is intelligent (he may be) but his vocabulary is dire, his attempts at banter and jokes are simply cringe worthy!
As for Rachel, She is as dull as dishwater too.
I think she has Googled herself too many times and read all the sad perverts comments on Youtube and that tacky fansite someone has created.
She dresses like a tramp also, showing her manky legs.
my thoughts7:36pm Sat 31 Mar
Spoilt programme Long time watcher of countdown(30years)this show has been ruined by new presenters.Record and then fast forward ! Old Fogey2:14pm Wed 28 Mar
thought I was the only one at last I've discovered like-minded people. Will the director/producer, whoever? tell that bloke Nick to stop saying 'well done' and 'very good' at every turn. They must really have had to search far and wide to find such a 'unique' presenter. The contestants must be nervous enough without him wittering on - he is so wrong on all counts for this type of show. Anyway, I've had to stop watching, even muting the sound doesn't work. I've been dipping in and out occasionaly to see if there's any improvement - worse, if at all possible. As we say in Glasgow 'his patter's like watter' Come back Jeff though i bet you couldn't wait to get back to the relative normality of soccer saturday after this load of drivel. Annabelle3:41pm Wed 7 Mar
What the dickens SHADOWBANE.I have to agree with you.Nick has stepped straight from a tale as a stereotypical Dickensian schoolmaster.He is curt,pompous,opionated, impolite & more.I have tried to view it as a 'dry sense of humour' but it isn't.TO NICK SEWER-'Get that Richard bloke off pointless'.Absolutely.-Now Rachel has the job of obligatory 'eye candy'.Yes,she is visually appealing but like you said SHADOWBANE she IS strange which I put down her lack of sex appeal-HER blandness leaves me (a middle aged bloke)cold.OK for the teen lads,I guess.Changes needed it would seem. comment fan7:12am Thu 1 Mar
Legs Since Nick took over, Rachel is not showing so much of those gorgeous legs - is Nick a bit of a prude? Murray5:17pm Wed 29 Feb
Used to love it Nnnnnno more Nick please! Ex fan5:52pm Tue 28 Feb
Watching Flog it! on BBC2 now Nick Hewer was a bad mistake by Channel 4. He is dire, bossy, patronising,overbearing, rude, and yes VERY boring. After many years watching, have now ditched Countdown from my viewing. Get rid of Hewer, asap. a truly interesting presenter is needed. Racheal is just very strange indeed ^^ Shadowbane3:59pm Tue 28 Feb
Rachel Ri-wee Love the way Rachel stands at the start of the show. Looks like she needs to do a wee-wee bobobob4:04am Thu 23 Feb
Hewer (dur!) and Rachel (ouch) What's Channel 4 thinking of choosing Nick Hewer, he has NO personality and the vocabulary of a 7 year old. He's also mildly offensive to the contestants who all probably have double Nick Hewer's IQ. I've even tried muting him out but I just can't stand even seeing him anymore - or Rachel's weird/inappropriate outfits. After watching Countdown almost from the start I'll wait until Channel 4 come to their senses. Roxanne6:16pm Tue 21 Feb
How long is his contract? I used to love watching - even with Jeff's awful jokes. I'm afraid a dire mistake has been made with Nick, he will never be interesting. Bry3:55pm Mon 20 Feb
