BBC One's new quiz show The Hit List didn't go down too well with viewers tonight (May 25) - but maybe we shouldn't judge it this early on as it was only the first episode, after all.

Presented by married couple Marvin and Rochelle Humes – who reached fame as band members of JLS and The Saturdays respectively – The Hit List pits three teams of two contestants against each other to name a track, along with the artist, as a section of music is played to them.

Pretty simple, right? So what's the problem?

Well, the general consensus from viewers is that there's not enough music being played or buzzers being bashed, as there's supposedly "too much chat".

Below we've plucked out some tweets highlighting this 'problem'.

But not everyone was so impatient to hear some tunes. Several viewers seemed to enjoy the whole casual format and how it incorporated conversation into the quiz.

Meanwhile, Rochelle's other TV series Ninja Warrior UK returned to ITV tonight, where the Eliminator round dramatically played out – leaving a number of highly skilled gymnasts sadly heading home after valiant efforts.

However, there's still several strong finalists set to compete next week – so will the towering Mount Midoriyama finally be conquered?

The Hit List returns next week (June 1) at 7:30 on BBC One.
