Coronavirus - Impact on live/recorded shows

Several talk programmes have cancelled studio audiences

One of C4's first panic lockdown commissions made it to air tonight - Celebrity Snoop Dogs. Turns out dogs aren't that great at camera work.

A review from the Independent sums it up - seems for the critics it was as bad as we all thought it sounded, but looking on Twitter it may have hit the "so bad it's good" audience.

Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Channel 4 commissioning an ill conceived idea, who’d thunk?!

I thought I'd give this go, I'm normally up for 'so bad it's good.' Nope, it's bad.

Worth noting Thursday saw the screening of one of two QI episodes which were filmed without a studio audience.

As I mentioned the other day, the Aussie Chase has started to air its socially distanced episodes. Now the German version has too but they've taken a different approach - they've put screens between the contestants instead of distancing them. Looks surprisingly good imo.

Have they extended the desk as well?

Visually that looks much better though and would be compliant I think with the 1m+ rule as they're all side by side.

Never a fan of this sort of stuff being done while a leader is still in office.

I believe the desk has always been that long. Looks like the screens are fixed too since they haven't centred the three players at the desk. It might be an easier solution than the podiums used by the Australian show.

Looks a lot better than the Australian zig-zag.
Guess who's big in the back time!

I would imagine ITV will see which set up works best before applying to The Chase in the UK.
