The origin story the name Wittertainment as a reference to the show, as told by Mark, is that Danny Baker used to refer to his own show as "infotainment at it's most infotaining", as he disliked the term "infotainment". Mark and Simon had a conversation about this, and between them decided that they were not "infotainment" but were instead "just two blokes wittering". Subsequently a user wrote in suggestion that "wittertainment" was a better term to use, and it stuck, becoming a short code for the Film Review Show itself.

It's use has also spread to be used in the shows social media presence, particularly Twitter and Snaptat.
