    If I actually think about which format I like better, itís definitely Pointless. I also canít be arsed with Bradley Walsh.

    But...I rarely ever watch Pointless, but put The Chase on every day.

    I record pointless so I can watch it when I eat my dinner, itís got to the stage where I canít eat without it being on. I have to scour the iPlayer if Iíve not got a recording. God knows what itís going to be like when restaurants open again.

    United we stand here....

    The Chase. There isn't much funnier on tv than Bradley losing it at a rude question or answer.

    I like both equally but probably watch the chase more. In an ideal world where I had unlimited time, Iíd watch both. I do like Richard Osman.

    Iíve started watching House of Games when I eat my tea

    Alexander Armstrong asking the finalists what they'll do with the miniscule jackpot is cringeworthy.

    The Chase wins it for me. Although Only Connect is the best quiz show. The satisfaction of getting a question right when 6 far more intelligent people than me can't is great.

    The ridiculous answers are the best bit of the show.

    'Well I've always wanted to go to Monte Carlo for the Grand Prix and my Grandaughter wants to go to Disneyland'.

    It's £500 mate. You'll get a tank of fuel for the drive home and an M&S meal deal at the services.

    I love Only Connect.

    It's one of those shows in which if you know the answer then it's hard to comprehend how others don't see it but if you can't see the answer it's difficult to work out how someone's brain works in such a way that they do see it.

    The range of questions and the varied knowledge and logic required to get the answers is genius.

    Yes one of my favourite ones, realising how obvious the connection is after you're told it is annoying, I think your brain tries to make it too complicated at times.

    Can’t say I like either, I will occasionally watch Only Connect but the only game show I’ll make an effort to watch, and more than a bit off topic, is “Would I lie to you” Especially if Bob Mortimer or Kevin Bridges are on.

    The chase. Pointless is fine but nothing worse than a boring category coming up and having to endure it for ages before they move on. They also have a nasty habbit of having multiple questions up that I'd like to keep reading but instead they show me the face of a contestant reading them.

    I watch a lot of tipping point and catchphrase, they're probably my 2 most watched.

    University Challenge for me, at least when you go 15 questions without having a clue of the answer you can take the piss out of the teams.

    mastermind is still the greatest ever quiz show.

    the simple fact it is for nothing except a *****y wee glass bowl and the ability to swagger round like the cock of the north means it is the pinnacle of quizzing.

    I like only connect by VCM is an annoying boot.

    chase is better than pointless but fixed.

    Aye Mastermind is still the show that all other quizzes should be judged against. Simple format, simple prize. It does annoy me when people pass though knowing that is a potential tie breaker. Just say anything rather than pass.

    I like the SAS show with Ant Middleton for similar reasons. No one wins anything or is going to get famous from it. You get beasted for a month and if you make it to the end you get a firm handshake and told well done.

    Would I lie to you is great. I'm a big fan of David Mitchell and Lee Mack anyway but them on opposing sides just works. It is more of a panel show than a game show though I'd say.

    I like pointless but the chase is far better. More questions, faster, and more money at stake.

    Also, the clips on you tube with Bradley's reaction to the question about Fanny Schmeller, or Keith Allen's reaction to the governess asking him about 'fat Les', crack me up every time.

    Canít stand either.
    If pointless is on in the background all I hear is AA thanking Richard all the time for some reason!

    His brother is the bassist (I think) in suede.

    I like both, the chase usually ends up on as the Mrs doesn't like pointless.

    I recently discovered a few months ago a music quiz called the hitlist on BBC1. Crap presenters but as concept I liked a quiz based on just music, I think there could be more music based quizzes.

    Taskmaster is silly, good laugh though.

    Have to say I enjoy both the chase and pointless whenever I get chance to watch them

    Pointless lives up to its name.
    Countdown best on tv and Popmaster on the radio.
