The United Kingdom's answer to ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' and/or TheSoup. The series ran from 2001 to 2012. Comedian Harry Hill went through television programmes that had been shown that week, often {{Soap Opera}}s or one-shot documentaries, and lampoons them - for weak acting, bad writing, or general [=WTF=]-factor. It's a highly AffectionateParody, though, with lots of silly facial expressions, cuddly Radio 4 innuendo and episode-long {{Running Gag}}s. OnceAnEpisode, two characters, concepts or something which Hill finds particularly notable would have a slapstick fight on stage.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Frequently pointed out.
* AdamWesting

to:

* AccidentalInnuendo: [[invoked]] Frequently pointed out.
* AdamWestingActorAllusion: [[invoked]] Harry enjoys doing this to recognisable actors in different media. Notable examples are constantly referring to Creator/PatrickStewart as [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Jean-Luc Pickard]], and calling [[Series/EastEnders Nana Moon's]] boyfriend "the bloke off ''Series/{{Lovejoy}}''".
* AdamWesting: If a celebrity is mentioned in a review, they may often appear in the studio to either defend themselves over Harry's criticism or further the joke.

* MythologyGag: A Fight between a fake coyote and a fake badger from a wildlife programme elicits a "Come on, Mr Badger- for the parade is in but half an hour!", a CallBack to his old ChannelFour show.

* GrandFinale: The show more or less wrapped up in the last three minutes when Cheryl Ferguson confronted Harry over the portrayal of her EastEnders character, Heather, on the show. Cue a cover of "Someone Like You" by Harry, Cheryl, Heather, Kitted Character, Wagbo and Amanda Lamb. It seems almost like any other ending, however, the credits played a [[SolemnEndingTheme solemn piano version]] [[TearJerker of the theme]] followed by a [[TheStinger stinger of "It's Over" using a clip of Phil Mitchell in a recent EastEnders episode]].

* IAmNotSpock: Played with when Harry refers to Patrick Stewart as [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Jean-Luc Picard]].

to:

* IAmNotSpock: Played with when [[invoked]] Often occurs. A couple of times, Harry refers to Patrick Stewart as [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Jean-Luc Picard]].



* ManipulativeEditing: Common when he performs highlights of the week's television at the beginning and after the break.
** One time in season 5, this occurs:
--->'''Harry Hill:''' And also this week, Patrick Stewart describes ''Series/{{Emmerdale}}'' perfectly.
--->'''Creator/PatrickStewart as [[Series/EleventhHour Ian Hood]]:''' What started out as a single file became a national disaster.



** An episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' had a photofit picture of a suspect dubbed "Harry Hill" due to its resemblance to Harry--then the incident was used as the basis for a sketch on TV Burp...

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The show took several years to settle its format. For example, there was more emphasis on sketches, and the 'fights' could happen at any time and they showed one side winning, whereas in later series the 'fight' always happens at the end of part 1 and we don't see who wins due to the advert break. Given the nature of the show it might be more accurate to describe this as Early Installment Less-Weirdness.

** When [[Series/TheXFactor Simon Cowell]] chose a song from the movie ''Film/Gummo'' for Movie Night, everyone displayed absolute confusion since they've never heard of it so Harry went and described the plot of the movie in less than a minute. Even funnier, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gummo he read, word-for-word, the synopsis on the film's Wikipedia page]].
