** There have been two ''Never Mind the Buzzcocks''-alikes. {{SBS}}'s ''Series/{{Rockwiz}}'' is considered the more musically credible; it has the feel of a stage show that just happens to be on TV, being filmed in an actual pub and with the scores displayed on cardboard placards. It is trumped in popularity by [[Creator/TheABC ABC]]'s ''Series/SpicksAndSpecks'', which is closer to ''Buzzcocks'' in format but (being hosted by Adam Hills) with a more positive attitude and less likely to go OffTheRails.

* ''Series/WouldILieToYou'', hosted in the first two seasons by Angus Deayton, currently hosted by Rob Brydon, with team captains Creator/LeeMack and Creator/DavidMitchell. Slightly more emphasis on the ''game'' part of panel game, the contestants read out a card that either contains an unlikely truth about themselves or a lie made up by the researchers of the show, and they have to defend it as true, while the other team prods them for additional facts and then says whether it's the truth, or a lie. ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6JH-3o17qI A video link]] explains it better than that description.) There are also various other rounds, such as each member of one team claiming to know a mystery guest. It's one of the best panel shows on today, with very little scripted material, lots of funny stories and plenty of good-natured ribbing.
* ''The Bubble'', hosted by David Mitchell isolates 3 celebrities in a country house for a week and shows them a variety of News Stories from the week, some real, some faked and the celebrities have to guess which is which. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y529crbY4DU It's better seen than read about.]] Notable for the fact that while it's a BBC show they are banned from faking news from the BBC. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTvVd8tr_n4 Here's an interview about the program.]]

* ''Radio/TheUnbelievableTruth'', hosted by David Mitchell. The four guests give a lecture on a particular subject that is full of lies, except for five truths scattered throughout, and the others have to pick out the truths as they go.

* ''So Wrong It's Right'', another panel show hosted by Creator/CharlieBrooker.

* WebVideo/CitationNeeded is Creator/TomScott's take on the format: He has a Wikipedia article pulled up, and three panelists (Chris Joel, Gary Brannan, and Matt Gray) who can't see the article and have to guess the details. Because all four of them are quite geeky and still intelligent, a lot of educational joking ensues.

* Ireland has ''The Panel'' which dispenses with the quiz format altogether, while still attempting to feel like a panel game show. It used to work, [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks until Dara Ó Briain left]].
