Just a thought... has Alan Davies ever not come last? Or, actually, heaven forfend, has he ever won?

I have always assumed that the scores in QI and other humorous quizzes are fairly arbitrary as it is not who wins that matters but the quality of the content.
Am I totally wrong in this belief?

Thank you, I just wondered.

Gerontius - you're broadly on track, but funnily enough we do keep quite a rigorous tack of the score during the recordings - there's a fellow who does that and nothing else. The trouble is that the recording then gets edited, so that the final scores reflect what happened during the recording but don't normally tie up to what you see in the broadcast.

Of course the other thing is whether or not the contestants are seriously trying to score points.

If nobody tried to score points then the chap whose job it was to record the points would be redundant.

The scoring on 'Who's Line is it Anyway' was good because they realised the futility of keeping score. I mean, who cares who won?

The one Alan won (with 23 points) was

A Series #10 13th November (2003) with Rich Hall, Julia Morris and Peter Serafinowicz

It was shown on 100% QI tonight, well, last night by now technically although it will be on again later, er, it's on NOW actually! UKTVG2
