Many game shows exist to please the masses with fairly easy questions. Pointless, premiering tonight, is a British game show that has developed a bit of a cult following overseas for its rather highbrow setup. This isn’t a show for dummies, with viewers often taking to social media to sing their own praises when they manage to outwit the players. Contestants play in teams of two and must find the most obscure answers to general knowledge questions based on pre-conducted public surveys of 100 people from the UK. A correct answer which no one in the survey thought of is a “pointless” answer. It’s presented by comedian Alexander Armstrong.
