The series has a bizarre premise, no doubt, the gist being that Hill is creating a showreel to convince aliens that humankind is too hilarious to be destroyed.
Joining Hill on his alien-convincing mission tonight was actor Patrick Robinson, Josh Widdicombe, Emmerdale's Kelvin Fletcher and Sara Pascoe.
The highlights included Sara singing 'Rolling in the Deep' while hitting herself in the head with a metal tray, Kelvin singing 'All About That Bass' while hitting himself in the head with a metal tray and Josh singing 'Shout Out To My Ex' while hitting himself in the head with - you guessed it - a metal tray.
It was mental (granted) and bizarre (certainly), and guest panellist Josh declared it "the most fun I've ever had on TV".
But what did viewers think?
These guys loved it:
