Pointless Season 28 Episode 8: Release Date & How To Watch

Pointless Season 28 Episode 8 release date is right around the corner and fans are dying to watch the new episode. Pointless is a British television quiz show that first premiered on the channel BBC Two on 24 August 2009. The show was eventually moved to BBC One in 2011 due to the success of its first three series.

The show is produced by Banijay subsidiary Remarkable Television and is hosted by Alexander Armstrong. Richard Osman stepped down as co-presenter on 8 April 2022 to focus more on his writing career. Until a replacement permanent presenter is found, rotating guest speakers will take his position. The popularity of the show has led to the creation of a celebrity spin-off called Pointless Celebrities. The format of Pointless Celebrities, which typically airs on Saturday nights, is the same as the normal show, except the guests are famous British and international public figures.

How does Pointless Work?

The main point of the game is to score the lowest score among the teams. Eight contestants are divided into four teams and they try to win as few points as possible by giving obscure but correct answers to general knowledge questions. The questions asked on the show are first presented to a panel of 100 individuals in a public survey conducted before the show. They are each given 100 seconds to answer the survey. The 100 people chosen to be part of the survey don’t know that they’re being questioned for Pointless. It’s not possible to apply to be one of the 100 surveyees as it would affect the outcome. The panel answers questions for the survey and the answers provided by them are used for the show without their knowledge.

How To Win Pointless?

Teams competing on the show

The main objective of the game is to achieve the lowest score possible. The entire game is divided into three rounds. The teams are first provided with a subject and they choose a representative from their team to answer the question. The question within the subject is then revealed to the chosen representative from the team. The contestants are informed in detail as to what constitutes an acceptable answer after a question is posed at the beginning of a round. If a team’s response is right, they receive one point for each respondent who provided it in the survey; otherwise, the response is deemed “pointless” and does not contribute to the team’s score. The team with the highest score is eliminated after each round and the score resets. A “pointless” answer is a response that is correct but also not mentioned by anyone from the panel of 100. The prize grows by £250 for every useless response given during the main game, and the team that advances to the final round has three opportunities to win it by providing one such answer. The jackpot is ultimately won by the team with the fewest points in the episode.
