[[caption-width-right:350:...and the ''8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown'' logo.]]



In January 2012, the stars of the panel comedy show ''Series/EightOutOfTenCats'' did an AffectionateParody of ''Countdown'' for the Channel 4 Mashup event, which mixed one show with another for one night of hilarity. It was titled - wait for it - ''8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown''. It proved so popular that it eventually became a series in its own right, premiering in July 2013.

** Before Channel 4 there was also an earlier incarnation, ''Calendar Countdown'' which was shown only on Yorkshire Television as an offshoot of regional news programme ''Calendar''. If the pilot (kicking around YouTube somewhere) is anything to go by, the format was a lot different, with rounds not making it into the more famous Channel 4 incarnation and the clock ran for 45 seconds.
