Australian quiz hands-in its (question) cards

Postby Chris » Thu Nov 24, 2011 12:10 pm

Spicks and Specks, a music-themed comedic quiz show has bowed-out, its final episode being the number one watched programme on Aussie TV last night.

The show, which ran for seven series, apparently derived it's name from a Bee Gees song. Employing a mix of music and comedy the show was said to be similar to the UK's 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks', albeit the question formats and show style (Satirical vs. Family vs. Pub Quiz) were different.
