God, these are so predictable aren't they. How about shooting from a high or low angle? Just inject something into the shoot to give it some interest. This is just such drab rubbish.

Focusing, again, is a little suspect, for me.

At least have some fun with it. Even if the concept was irrecoverably bad (which it isn't), there'd still be no reason to bore everyone to death. Embrace it, get inspired...

Looking forward to seeing what they do with it. The addition of the "celebrity judges" seems unnecessary to the format but who knows?

I'm pretty sure that Gen Game has had 'celebrity' judges before. In games where there's not an expert teaching them something and weren't points based I'm sure they used to get a famous guest on to score them

It definitely happened but I couldn't tell you the calibre of those who came on to "score" things. Although that being said regardless of who did the judging there was often sod all to judge on particularly with those baking or making tasks they used to do where the expert made something beautiful in two seconds and Fred and Daphne's effort after three minutes looked like it had been in an earthquake.

Sounds like a good day to rebrand...

Especially if it’s moving to a substantially decent EPG slot on the platform.

Currently, The Store occupies LCN 39, so either it is moving or going as far as to completely close. ITV can’t do much with it. It’s turned into a phantom channel ever since the chatmercial block was scrapped, even more so after Blaze launched.


Will this mean CITV Until 9pm?

No.

The Store operates in the late hours of ITV2+1 capacity (3am - 4am).

CITV isn’t going to extend hours anytime soon. COM4 is virtually full and at this rate there’s no way to solve this shortfall in broadcasting hours until ITV manages to create new capacity.

It was recently said that Gamal had appeared everywhere apart from Sky News Tonight and never presented from Millbank. Well he's presenting from Westminster now and Sky News Tonight, but his delivery seems different,

No surprise Sophy was missing, she's looked a little ill quite often the last few weeks, I wonder when she is on maternity leave, since that was the last SROS I assume she may already be?

Darts Graphics are unchanged still using all caps.

However they have added an annoying "sky sports" logo under the scoreboard, made to look further worse by the fact, that itself the logo is in a box with borders.

You've got to wonder if all the attention on Piers and Susanna is starting to grate on Charlotte, Kate and Ben - they do actually present the program too. Charlotte isn't even mentioned in the article above, yet is pictured in the header image. Given that Piers and Susanna only present the program for three days a week, there seems to be too heavy a focus on them.

I for one will be glad to have a bit of a break from them over the summer, before the love/hate thing starts to get dull.

A look in this video posted by Sky at the new MNF studio, new Cricket studio, new EFL studio, new teamsheet graphics alongside many other things:


Hmm.. Rendered images of the studios - but either they've built 2 identical sets, or they are planning on using one set and letting the LED lighting around the plasma screens do all the leg work - only the table and chairs will alter.

However, for the Cricket, thank god they have binned those awful red waist high 'perch' seats. Never looked good on screen.

Back in the days of using terrestrial links, they used to employ a nightwatchman to keep an eye on the kit at the midpoints.

Although on one occasion the nightwatchman was more of a hinderance to getting on air than a help!

Back in those days mobile VT wasn't really a thing, so OB scanners would feed back to a studio centre for recording.
Write that down in your copybook now.
