Randling, is a game show that hearkens back to the good old days when a point was a point and a team was something worth barracking for. Using sporting competition as inspiration and framework, Randling pits ten amazing teams against each other over 27 rounds of bone-crunching combat. White-water rafting for the brain, Randling is a show where smart people can be funny and funny people can be smart, where actual knowledge may help you, but just as likely won't. It's a cheeky, surprising show that allows Mr Denton to live up to his hosting motto: 'I'm Andrew and I'm not here to help'. Mostly, Randling is a show where brilliant performers can come to play. And that's play for fun as well as play to win. It's a half hour filled with insight and insults, brilliance and bullshit. We guarantee every episode will leave you at least 1% smarter and 100% happier. Each week, two teams play for keeps, fighting over every point to fulfil their dream of taking home the 2012 Randling premiership. In tonight's first round match, The West Coast Odd Sox, radio host Merrick Watts and political journalist Annabel Crabb, continue their hundred-year-old blood feud with the Southern Furies, TV host Julia Zemiro and Wheeler Centre director Michael Williams.
