* Try and imagine ''Series/{{QI}}'' without Creator/StephenFry or Alan Davies for a second. Davies once missed a show, and they left his seat empty rather than replace him.
** No need to wonder how it would be without Stephen Fry for much longer. Time will tell if Sandi Toksvig can carry it on.

** And also Chris Tarrant makes the British version of the show what it is. The guy knows a heck of a lot, and never gives anything away with his [[CatchPhrase "Is that your final answer?"]]

** It's also likely why the Australian one brought over Anne Hegerty as one of the Chasers, and then brought in Mark Labbett a few years later.

* Viewing of ''Series/AmericanIdol'' dropped drastically every time judges were replaced. When Simon left to run the American version of ''[[TheXFactor X-Factor]]'' in 2016, Idol ran its final episode.

* For a great many British viewers, the only reason to watch the Series/EurovisionSongContest was for Radio/TerryWogan's acerbic commentary, to the point where the first words uttered by replacement commentator Graham Norton when the 2009 contest began were, "I know, I miss Terry too." This did not always endear him to viewers in other countries where the competition is, if not SeriousBusiness, at least seen as something more than SnarkBait.

* Both the Japanese and American incarnations of ''Series/IronChef'', with Chairman Kaga and the Japanese commentators/Alton Brown respectively. Gordon Elliott (in the ''IC Japan'' New York special) and Creator/WilliamShatner (the doomed ''Iron Chef USA'') have both tried to fill the host role- the former failed, the latter was damned awesome but got hamstrung by UPN's typical idiocy.

** The British version, ''You've been Framed'', was pretty much so-so and just cheap infill on an early Saturday evening, before the good stuff started- like the above mentioned ''Catch Phrase''. And then off-the-wall comedian [[Series/HarryHillsTVBurp Harry Hill]] took over doing the commentary and voiceovers. It's now the Harry Hill Show, with background film provided by members of the public.

* It's generally accepted that, aside from the general improvement in the standards of the competitors and higher production values, the thing that really made the second season of ''Series/RobotWars'' take off was replacing Jeremy Clarkson (who was deadpan and often [[{{Jerkass}} quite rude to the contestants]]) with Creator/CraigCharles as host (it helped that, while Clarkson genuinely didn't like the show, Craig's [[LargeHam bombastic enthusiasm]] simply ''couldn't'' be faked). Whether Creator/DaraOBriain has managed to live up to Craig's legacy in the show's 2016 reboot is [[BaseBreaker a matter of some contention]].
