Episode 6667 was broadcast on 15 September 2017, as part of Series 77.

Ben Leyburn played Paul Conchie, with Ben Leyburn winning 88 – 85. The Dictionary Corner guest was Janet Street-Porter, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was broadcast at the unique time of 12:40pm, as, later in the day, including during Countdown's normal time slot, Channel 4 was covering the practice run of the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix. Notably, this is the earliest-ever transmission time for a first-run, non-Masters, non-special Countdown episode. The programme's earlier time slot was also only 45 minutes long as opposed to the usual 50 minutes, as Channel 4 usually broadcast re-runs in that slot and thus fewer adverts.
