In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.
Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

  • Just one episode? Saw this first one & two weeks since now no listing. Did little Alex Horne forget to deliver them? What's up with that? Swim faster!!

    • The CW decided to cancel the US airing after the first episode premier "didn't resonate with American audiences as well as expected"

  • Seems Taskmaster was too much for the USA. I knew it. Its just too British. We'll keep it thanks anyway

    • In the US here, I have to say that they must have buried it since I never heard of this show until the news broke that it was cancelled after 1 show. I looked it up here on youtube and I have to say that my wife and I absolutely LOVE this show. Here's to hoping that there are many more series being produced elsewhere as we are already into series 6 and can't stop bingeing such brilliance!

  • Where is it? Last Sunday it was 20 minutes from now but it's not on the schedule for the next 8 days. I set my DVR to record it whenever it's on so I won't miss it but I want to see episode 2 tonight!

  • CW screwed up big time by cancelling the show after just one episode was aired. They intentionally out it on TV on a night where it never could succeed, but keep stupid supernatural and superhero shows. Makes no sense why they intentionally tanked the show.

  • This worries me, they have a habit of ruining great shows when they try to being them to the US. As an American I hope they dont ruin another good show. They already tried and failed with Top Gear

  • As much as this pleases me, to see the original episodes here Stateside, I wish this format worked in America in general for our own version. From what I saw participants were way too competitive and it lacked the charm of the original. I would love to see some American comedians and personalities going up against one another.

  • Wait so it will be available here or they are continuing it here or simply that we'll get another office situation... Cause I don't like the idea of a us version of taskmaster the British office was... Well shit but I didn't like the us one either tbh it wasn't terrible or anything okish for background noise but never got into it. I feel like a us version of this would be absolute shit... Idk but I don't like the idea I feel like the best part of taskmaster is the European comics if we go with us comics stuff like roast battle really just fits them better.

  • Back in the US again. Awesome. Is it new or just one's that have aired on Dave? If new, I can't wait to hear the participant lineup. In the original US run, Reggie as a presenter was not bombastic enough.

  • America already had a failed Taskmaster. The American TV series stars comedian and actor Reggie Watts in the titular role of the Taskmaster, issuing simple comedic and bizarre tasks to regular contestants, with Alex Horne acting as Watts' assistant and umpire during the challenges. The series was recorded in California, and the contestants were Lisa Lampanelli, Freddie Highmore, Ron Funches, Dillon Francis, and Kate Berlant. It premiered on April 27, 2018 and was won by Kate Berlant. Watts has said that there will not be a second season.

  • Glad to hear it. I'm not really sure why they didn't do this a few years ago instead of doing the U.S. remake. If all the contestants are going to be relatively unknown anyway, might as well just show the original.

  • How about making them available as pay to view or subscription for everyone regardless of country? I mean even though you did Brexit, we still like to watch your shows. NOworld is fun clips, but the closed captioning here on NOworld is nowhere near what I would expect the British original to be with better accessibility.

  • I hope this leads to some real US episodes someday soon. The big problem is in who would be the contestants for a US show. There are far too many reality stars, actors, comedians, musicians, etc... and MOST of them probably wouldn't make for a good fit. The key, I think, is to start with the comedians and definitely try to stay away from as much vulgarity as possible. And then once you add Greg and Alex to the mix, you can't go wrong. :D

  • I dunno how this will translate… UK comedy is usually about banter and interaction, while USA comedians only ever deliver tightly-scripted “comedy” and are pretty solipsistic, people with horrible fragile egos who couldn’t improvise a fart after eating a can of beans. Your show works in the UK because most people there are good sports and are pretty wry and self-effacing, while many people in the USA don’t get sarcasm or interplay or subtlety of any sort. People in the USA are very protective of whatever gilded, overinflated self-image they’ve developed. Your show is about people failing magnificently, but it may devolve instead into awful pre-scripted humor and very elaborate self-protective mugging. I wish you the best, and everything? and who could fault you for saying “Yes!” to the money truck? But unless every USA season is all Colin Mochrie and Greg Proops and Ryan Stiles and Kathy Greenwood, I don’t see this particular export ending very well… 😕

  • American fans are simply asking if this content will soon be region locked for us on this channel. This lock does not apply to every country. This channel has been a Godsend for many of us, and as much as I'd want to support seeing this on a national channel, I'll be watching what basically amounts to re-runs where I know everything that is about to happen and will probably be heavily edited. I guess we'll see... I actually liked the Comedy Central version, thought it had a lot of potential.
