Worth noting that apart from the morning line up tomorrow and the news everything on ITV (from 12.30pm onwards) tomorrow is a repeat, with yet another showing of the first Harry Potter in early evening, the news at 7.30pm and a Vera repeat at 8pm.


That sounds like something the Daily Mail would run with.

Ignore all the new content before and after and once there is a day with lots of repeats, pounce on it and do a story

This sort of thing is perfect tabloid fodder, especially after the axing of Jeremy Kyle.

I can just imagine the headline:

Viewers OUTRAGED as cash-strapped ITV shows a whole day of repeats!

Given the changes which are happening to the X Factor this year, its days could be numbered, so they could be looking for a potential replacement.

They may end up commissioning several new shows, to initially run alongside the X Factor, before they a find a successful show to replace it.

The Masked Singer sounds like a great format. Hopefully it works.

Has BGT always been scheduled to 10:15pm this evening? Or is this a last minute change?

It's worked in America and Korea so I'm hoping it works here too.

Interesting to see LWT in that list, given that it's effectively been 15 years since it ceased to exist.


...and Central South as that area was given up during the mid 00s for a new Thames Valley region along with Meridian North.

...and the Isle of Man moved from Border to Granada about a decade ago! Rolling Eyes

Mind you, the "what BBC/ITV region you live in" drop-down menus for our Profiles right here on TVF also persist in being infuriatingly selective/inconsistent about how up-to-date/stuck-in-the-past they are. (e.g. we still have a Central South option. Also, Westcountry & HTV West should actually now be West Country west/east. And yet we do have STV Central/North options, rather than persisting with calling them Scottish/Grampian) Rolling Eyes Mad Thumbs down

Quick BGT question:

How are they able to create a highlights package of the acts so quickly during a live broadcast?

Another quick BGT question:

How have they allowed the channel to be referred to as "ITV1" all week on the white card which introduces all the acts for the night, at the start of the show? "ITV1 Presents". A mistake which happened last year and probably the year before that. Incidentally, it was corrected for the Final tonight.
