Because I'm fed up of having to shout 'cheats' at the screen when University Challenge is on.
Why are some teams allowed to mutter on for hours and mull over their answer endlessly when it is clear they haven't got a clue what the answer is, and are never going to come up with anything sensible, then eventually admit they don't know.
Whereas with other teams the question is barely out of Jeremy's mouth before he is barking 'come on, come on' at them.
Why is time wasting only clamped down on towards the end of the programme? The amount of time some teams Durham are allowed to witter on could mean the difference betwen winning and losing. I know it's just kids with posh surnames showing off, but the inconsistancy really irritates the hell out of me.
I agree - he obviously has his favourites. Sometimes he is so rude when someone gets a question wrong. And sometimes he seems so surprised when someone gets a question right he is really patronising. And I hate the hours some teams are allowed to discuss answers - gets really boring.
