COUNTDOWN, SBS One, 5.45pm
JEFF Stelling — the Countdown host who will leave at the end of this season (its 64th, his third) — opens the show by saying how ‘‘ hip and trendy’’ they’ve gone, and then discusses Rachel Riley’s pants. Are we going to see more trousers, he wants to know. ‘‘ No, just for today, I think,’’ she says, squirming at the letter board. ‘‘ OK, the nation’s men breathed a sigh of relief.’’ This is Letters and Numbers’ replacement.
