Network Ten’s new game show kicked off its first episode last night, but the overall reception from viewers wasn’t too flash.

Pointless drew an audience of 493,000 last night at 6pm across all three of Network Ten’s channels.

However, many viewers took to social media to leave some savage criticism about the show’s format as well as the chemistry between hosts Dr Andrew Rochford and Mark Humphries.

And it appears Ten’s decision to rest Family Feud and replace it with Pointless may have backfired, with a chorus of viewers calling for Grant Denyer’s return.

Perhaps Humphries saw the criticism coming, having posted a tweet prior to the show’s debut calling for viewers to ” be gentle”.

B&T has contacted Ten for comment.
