Coronation Street

And having made a big deal about not doing their stunt in BGT week because that's when viewers expect it they've now found themselves with a very weak week to run alongside BGT where the reveal of the culprit behind the factory roof collapsing is just something nobody cares about.

Popular Programmes in 2000


Euro 2000
... from Hell

Was that a review of England's performance? Laughing

God though, we moan about TV nowadays and without checking the evidence I'd have thought 2000 was a pretty good year but that list is somewhat embarrassing. The most noticeable thing is how low rent all the drama is compared to what rates nowadays.

Eurovision 2019

They don’t even play it on Radio 1 here, never mind top of the charts. I doubt it ever gets mentioned on commercial radio either.


Eurovision is far more Radio 2 than Radio 1. In other countries it is more likely to be linked to their Radio 2 than their Radio 1 equivalents. If you look at what songs have been successful in recent years - they have been far more Radio 2-friendly in UK terms. The same is true elsewhere.

Is it the case abroad though? I do wonder if taking the view it's more Radio 2 than Radio 1 is part of the problem.

Channel 4

Considering ITV so needed ITVBe because ITV2 just didn't have enough ad time to sell I'd have thought there is a similar argument for a second E4 channel, and there is definately a bit of a gap in the market for it. Maybe just reviving the E4 Music brand for the channel would let them tick both boxes, though now they've emphasised the 4 branding on all channels can't see them doing that.
