Never Mind the Buzzcocks was a short-lived panel game based on the British show of the same name with a rock music theme. This version only lasted a month.
Two teams, each made of two celebrity guests and one regular team captain, competed in a variety of games that take a very obvious backseat to comedy (or attempts thereof).
The teams were shown clips of music videos, and scored two points if they knew what happens next after the clip ends.
Two members of the team would vocalize the instrumental track to a given song, with the third trying to guess the song for another two points.
Each team attempted to pick an artist or actor from a classic music video from a lineup of five people on-stage (two points each).
The host would music lyrics; and teams scored earn 1 point every time they could give the next lyric. After each team had played for 60 seconds, the highest-scoring team was declared the winner and given a formerly-celebrity-owned item (or at least, so they say).
Based on the British show of the same name.
The show's title is a play on words of the Sex Pistols album Never Mind the Bollocks and the British new wave group Buzzcocks (themselves named for a catchphrase in the musical drama series Rock Follies).
