The Russell Howard Hour is a satirical comedy show on Sky 1. It follows stand up comic Russell Howard tackling hard-hitting topics with his unique sense of humour. Its format is similar to Russell Howard's Good News that aired on BBC.
Michael McIntyre has tried a few formats out in order to broaden his range beyond just being a stand-up comedian (albeit a very successful one).
A one series gig on Britain's Got Talent didn't really work, and his chat show didn't fare much better.
Here though he is on much safer ground, and the public clearly agree, as this show has one various awards.
It's good natured, typically silly Saturday night entertainment, with McIntyre on good form as the host. Not all the items totally work, and it could do with varying its structure week on week, but this is good fun overall.
