Yes, we know there’s a lot at stake here.

Andy Parsons quits Mock the Week and suggests a woman should replace him

After 10 years and a whopping 135 episodes, Andy Parsons has quit Mock the Week.

The comedy panel quiz regular has decided to focus on his Slacktivist Action Group podcast and new live show.

"I'd like to thank all of the people I've worked with over the years on Mock and from the BBC," Parsons said.

"However, when 'Unlikely Things to Hear in a Superhero Movie' comes around for the 4th time it is probably time to move on.

"Perhaps this will be an opportunity to make a female comedian a regular."

He continued: "I, myself, am looking forward to chairing the new monthly show and podcast Slacktivist Action Group and delving a little deeper into the bigger issues affecting the UK.

"With what seems like an exciting time for politics in this country, this is something I'd like to focus more of my time upon, with a chance to host a

NBC's "Grimm" and Investigating The Big Bad Wolf: A Television Review (Pilot)

Creators: Stephen Carpenter, David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf.

Cast: Russell Hornsby, David Giuntoli, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, and Reggie Lee.

The NBC television series "Grimm" is set to challenge other supernatural heavyweights on Friday night. In one corner is Fox's Fringe and in another is CW's "Supernatural." Just how well Grimm will fare will depend on how much audiences like the cop Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) as he combats the supernatural forces that have integrated into Portland society.

This television series is based off the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and it will put Burkhardt at odds with many creatures from both traditional legends and fictional lore. He's partnered with Hank Griffan (Russell Hornsby), who does not yet know that Burkhardt has the ability to see monsters posing as humans. Maybe he will learn about it in future episodes, but only time will tell.
