Hmm..
Can't help thinking sticking it on now is a mistake.

Up against the Christmas special of Call The Midwife on Christmas/Boxing Night - now, that would be better.

They should be competing with ITV, not BBC1. Top Gear and Midwife clashing would harm both BBC1 and BBC2's ratings.

Of course those two programmes famously chase after the same audience. Also I'd be very surprised if ITV aren't broadcasting anything in that time slot.

Don't forget we're talking about Christmas Day. I can see arguments in many families when Mum wants to watch Midwife and Dad wants to watch Top Gear...

Chris Evans first tweet "as presenter" confirms he won't be leaving Radio 2... just like he confirmed he wasn't in the running, and confirmed he wasn't not in the running.

I suppose he might do what Jeremy Vine does when filming Eggheads and have an extra couple weeks of someone standing in for him in radio.

If anything goes it'll probably be his One Show roll. Most of the UK based stuff should fit around the breakfast show quite easily, while the foreign excursions aren't to numerous in comparison and not much different from him (or other DJs) taking short breaks to fulfil other TV commitments anyway.

I suspect if they've got any sense they'll avoid a big foreign trip to begin with.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?
