Word Jail as in your programme on 17th October 2019
Could we please put 'um' in word jail. Susie Dent uses it too often, mostly to draw attention to her next sentence. It's extremely annoying.

The statistician
Can I remind Richel that one of roles of the statistician is to show how the target figure might have been achieved. Today in the last numbers game not only might the target figure of 724 have been achieved if only the contestants had made their 725 without using either of the two 9s, i.e. [(4*8)-3]*25-(9/9), but Rachel was allowed extra time to show the method she finally did see which wasa totally unrelated to that of the contestants.

Bimbo.
She's been quiet lately. Usually spouting on about anti semitism in the Labour party. Bimbo.
Barb. 1:28pm Wed 28 Aug
 
   
Stodge & Smarmy
The time is long overdue for stodgy Hewer and smarmy Riley to be replaced. This used to be a very enjoyable programme, but no longer so.

Bimbo.
Don't like Rachel. She needs to keep her nose out of politics. Brain dead bimbo who has the answers given to her through an earpiece.
Rich. 1:57pm Mon 22 Apr
 
   
Hewer
I quite enjoy this program but is Nick Hewer really as thick as he makes out ?
Stan. 1:37pm Mon 22 Apr
 
   
Nick Hewer
Always looks as if he'd rather be anywhere else
Paula 3:27pm Thu 21 Mar
 
   
On tv every day....
...she thinks she's rather important. Loves the sound of her own voice and that coy look is so FALSE!
Zaz 7:28am Thu 21 Mar
 
   
Prev comm
She was only as good as the dictionary in front of her. Now she thinks she is a celeb.
mazza 8:36pm Wed 20 Mar
 
   
Susie Dent
Makes out she's so knowledgeable with words. Well she wasn't when on two other quiz shows recently. She was as thick as two short planks! I was VERY surprised!!!
Dina 3:32pm Wed 20 Mar
 
   
Riley
Riley. Stop using the earpiece to tell you the solution . You are even more pathetic in the 9 out of 10 program .
HAHAHA 1:43pm Mon 4 Mar
 
   
Way back
In the day when Richard was in charge I commented on SD greasy locks.........nothings changed
mazza 9:58pm Sat 2 Mar
 
   
Dent.
Feed a combination of letters into a computer and see what you get. Any mug can do it. Susie dent has been stealing a living for years. Try this Susie, poomash. That's right, shampoo, try using it.
Adi 1:23pm Sat 2 Mar
 
   
PAC man.
Since when has dressing like PAC man been a religion.
Shogun. 5:00pm Mon 11 Feb
 
   
Religion
I do not require to know contestants’ religion. In my years of watching I haven’t heard them announce that they are RC or CofE, so why do we allow a woman with a head covering to shove her religion in our faces.
Alemap 10:43am Mon 11 Feb
 
   
Riley
Wonder who she is going to sleep with next ..
HAHAHA 4:07pm Sun 6 Jan
 
   
Susie Dent
Is so irritating. She always tries to big up her part. Sorry dearie if it hasn't happened by now to hit the big time it never will.
mazza 10:02pm Fri 4 Jan
 
   
IN NEED OF CHANGE
This once enjoyable and very popular programme has never been the same since stodgy Hewer and flighty Reilly joined the team. They need to be replaced urgently to stop the ratings plummeting even further.
John M 2:07pm Fri 4 Jan
 
   
Dan Walker
What a twerp! He's like a little boy!
Jimmo 2:29pm Wed 12 Dec
 
   
Susie dent
She's so boring. Her word explanations, who cares. She needs to look up the word "greasy "as I don't think she's washed her hair in years.
The real septic 5:18pm Thu 31 May
 
   
No BAFTA for Nick
Highlights of today were Nick trying desperately not to look bored out of his mind at Susie's long and tedious explanation of "knackered", and Pam Ayres' excellent Dame Edna Everage impersonation.
toboratonmi 2:52pm Thu 31 May
 
   
Good on Owen - Friday10 October programme
Terrible selection of letters! It may not have been in the Oxford English Dictionnary but APOXIA is a word meaning "Altitude sickness". Well done getting a six letter word out of that selection!
Miss Take 1:47pm Tue 10 Oct
 
   
wash your hair.
Why doesnt susie dent look up the origin of the word shampoo, then go and buy a bottle. That hair hasn't been washed since 1992!
mel. 7:02pm Tue 13 Jun
 
   
Noisy Audience
Look at them!! I don't believe it is the audience whooping and cheering wildly. I reckon it's the studio floor staff trying to inject a bit of enthusiasm into what is a basically dreary programme.....and audience!
Tom Ketchup 2:26pm Tue 13 Jun
 
   
Nick Hewer
So mechanical and disnterested - even after all this time!
Maud 2:15pm Tue 13 Jun
 
   
Nick Hewer
Recently,nick mentioned the great hurricane that Michael Fish wrongly said would miss England. Of course Mr Fish was right as hurricanes never occur in the UK .
Marvin 11:16pm Sun 30 Apr
 
   
Oh yeah
Rachel oh Rachel!
Nickie 4:17pm Thu 16 Mar
 
   
Nick Hewer
Continues to seem tense and ill at ease - wringing his hands - and his introduction directed at Rachel is absolutely CRINGEWORTHY!!!!!
JoAnn 7:21am Wed 2 Nov
 
   
Gyles Brandreth
Why do the programme makers persevere with this leering, smug, egotistical person? He makes my skin creep the way he looks at Susie. YUK! Can't watch the programme when he's on.
Wolfie 9:51am Mon 8 Aug
 
   
Gyles Brandreth......
Must be taking medication. He was hyperactive and like a misbehaving child. Horrendous guest
I really, really might be a robot 10:19pm Tue 2 Aug
 
   
Could anyone be more smug and self'satisfied...
...than Susie Dent - except Richard Madeley???!!!! Yuk and yuk!!!!!!!
Dolly Blue 3:53pm Wed 8 Jun
 
   
More & More Boring
Nick Hewer and a series of totally uninteresting guests have turned this once enjoyable afternoon programme into something that is becoming less & less watchable.
John M 2:48pm Tue 5 Apr
 
   
What is Rachel Wearing
She looks like a twister ice cream!!! Too much for an afternoon show.
Ggerryy 3:46pm Mon 28 Mar
 
   
Horrendous Hewer
Please , please , please get rid of Nick Hewer. Patronising , boring & totally self obsessed.
Floosie 9:19am Sat 12 Mar
 
   
Today's game
Is that the worst defeat on a champion - 125-35
soso 5:02pm Thu 18 Feb
 
   
Nick
When he first started I couldn't stand him. Now I see he is VERY witty and a clever bloke. And a very lucky one to be working with Rachel & Suzie, and Naga this week. Rock on Nick.
William G Danson, Thailand 11:58am Fri 22 Jan
 
   
Totally boring
You actually don't see all the program as its been edited so much , last time i ever go and watch in audience , as for Rachel , she needs replacing .She's not all that
HAHAHA 6:57pm Thu 7 Jan
 
   
Today's show
Who was the male contestant on today's show?
Minx 3:58pm Wed 6 Jan
 
   
Nick!
Why has Nick not been replaced by now - surely the presenters have realised he is a totally uninteresting pompous bore! I used to like the programme but now it is painful to watch. It's a shame.
Lucy 4:45pm Tue 22 Dec
 
   
What is Rachel wearing today?!!
I know, it's a dustbin bag! How festive.
Oh dear, oh dear 4:56pm Mon 21 Dec
 
   
LADY AND THE TRAMP
Nick and Sue remind me of The two adorable dogs. Albeit in a platonic way,You see Nick, in this case the "Tramp" is a boy dog.not A lADY.
Maggie. 5:25pm Tue 15 Dec
 
   
Gyles Brandreth
I've grown to like Nick Hewer BUT Gyles Brandreth keeps appearing for some obscure reason. He's a loathsome, fawning, leering, egotistical creep that makes your skin crawl.
Wolfie 6:42pm Tue 25 Aug
 
   
Hewer's fine!
And Susie's wonderful. But do they need to dress the tart in tarty clothes? And that morphed lens to make her look taller and slimmer - oh please.
Carol Voldermoort 6:00am Tue 18 Aug
 
   
Team
The Team is great, rember P&Q's when game raised

Nick Hewer
Please channel,4 replace Nick Hewer, we love the programme but he drives us mad and is so boring with his silly remarks he spoils this otherwise enjoyable quiz.
VBF 7:25pm Fri 13 Feb
 
   
Name?
Who is the female contestant on today's show?
Rocker rob 3:32pm Tue 10 Feb
 
   
Poor Nick
Poor Nick Hewer. He is surrounded by women who are not only more attractive than he is, they are younger, more intelligent, more interesting, and play a larger part in the game than he does. So why is he there at all?
Chalky 4:52pm Fri 30 Jan
 
   
Susie's ums
The other half and I love the show, But turn the volume off when Susie is doing her origin of words, interesting, but far too manu umms and aahhs, horrible.
