The purpose of the show is to be in the final to win the jackpot . The jackpot starts with £ 1,000 and if it is not won, the next show £ 1,000 added to the jackpot.
For the show are asked a series of questions to 100 people. Each question is noted how many people could give the correct answer and this number determines the score from the right answer. If none of the 100 people know an answer to a question, is the score of this answer so zero, or a pointless answer.
The presenter Alexander Armstrong presents the quiz show since the first episode and is assisted by his assistant and old fellow student Richard Osman, who sits at a desk behind a laptop. The show begins with four panels of any two people. Alexander Armstrong, the panels a number of questions, to which each panel a question figure out the right answer in their opinion the least of which will be known. The lower the score, the more likely to go to the next round. As a pointless answer is guessed, the jackpot is £ 250 when added together. On each iteration of this response delivers Richard Osman, also known as Alexander's Pointless friend called, commentary and often tells an obscure fact about the right answer.
The show has four rounds:
- The first round
- The second round
- The third round: the Head to Head
- The fourth round: the Final
On one day, four episodes filmed.
