Taskmaster viewers shared one major complaint about the show’s new series as the first episode aired.
Greg Davies and Little Alex Horne returned to host the 12th series of the BAFTA-winning comedy game show on Channel 4 tonight (Thursday, September 23).
Viewers were excited to see the return of the hit game show, but were disappointed by new additions.
They took to Twitter to complain about swearing being bleeped out and constant warnings not to try the tasks at home.
Many said it was like watching a “kids’ version” of the show.
Chris wrote: “It’s passed 9pm @Channel4, less of the bleeping. Most who watch the show enjoy the bad language, it makes the joke/line funnier #Taskmaster.”
Nicholas Hewitt agreed, saying: “Bleeping out the swearing is completely ruining #Taskmaster Hopefully @AlexHorne & @avalonent has a chat with @Channel4, or the best show on TV could be about to take a huge nosedive.”
Sheila Larkin added: “This HAS to be the kids version bring broadcast by mistake #Taskmaster”
