The Knowing Me, Knowing You TV show was a 30 minute British comedy series on BBC2 about a ficticious talk show host with a propensity for insulting his guests. In many cases, those he offended made their feelings about the insult very clear on the air in an attempt to disgrace him. In addition, he screwed up just about everything he touched including his relationships with his wife and co-workers.
