Countdown

I used to like Carol as presenter.
Wonder how she would have coped with the following letters U, D, F, C, K, E

Re: Countdown

Maybe since Carol left and Richard Whiteley passed away, viewer number have dropped off, this was dreamed up to improve ratings.

Re: Countdown

Nice bit of comedy jelv.
Well, was going to post that I thought that this wasn't the first time it had happened. But if aficionado's of Countdown only watch it on the off-chance something risqué comes up, they're in for a very long wait.
@journeys, to improve ratings like this, they'd have to preview the programme in advance, which would spoil the surprise somewhat. So its my naive guess that it is genuine. 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
