Countdown with Ann Robinson.

    Not liking Ann. Sounds like her teeth are loose!

    Saw her first episode. In fairness, she deserves a chance to put her own imprint on the chair (so to speak). I don't think she's a good fit as host however. She's just spent so long being sarcastic and domineering to TV competitors that I think she lacks the empathy, charisma and light touch to do justice to Countdown. (Also a horrid person to work with according to stories I've heard.)

    Just watched countdown today for the first time in months. GOD - Anne Robinson is awful as the presenter, the show is so flat & as OP says, she needs to get those teeth tightened up.

    Thank God for that!

    This show needs a 'Headmaster' type to keep the ladies in their place!

    Bring back Nick!

    Good to see Colin Murray back in the chair. He can be a bit manic, but he’s a huge improvement on Anne. The atmosphere is already more relaxed and friendly.
