After the News

They will be airing it, just after Scotland Tonight though.


It's not. As I said, confirmed schedules on DigiGuide show no signs of the programme at all.


Our John Mackay said on Twitter it will be shown, just after Scotland Tonight.


I stand corrected. Someone should tell the schedulers though. If it's not in listings up here it won't stand much chance.

STV News

STV News Tonight has been on air for 8 weeks now - but according to viewing figures from BARB, it hasn't really made much of an impact. The most amount of viewers it has had was on the 10th May, when 17,000 tuned in.

Arrow w/e 7th May: STV NEWS TONIGHT (FRI 1900) - 12,000 (7th most watched)
Arrow w/e 14th May: STV NEWS TONIGHT (WED 1900) - 17,000 (4th most watched)
Arrow w/e 30th May: STV NEWS TONIGHT (TUE 1900) - 12,000 (9th most watched)

Here is a list of the 10th most watched programme on weeks where STV News Tonight hasn't made the list:
Arrow w/e 21st May: PETER & ROUGHIE'S FOOTBALL SHOW (4) (WED 1932) - 11,000
Arrow w/e 28th May: STV NEWS F/B WEATHER (WEEKDAY) (TUE 2624) - 10,000
Arrow w/e 4th June: STV NEWS AT SIX (2) (TUE 1800) - 11,000
Arrow w/e 11th June: PETER & ROUGHIE'S LEGENDS (1) (SAT 1531) - 9,000

It seems that since STV2 launched (well, added three new cities to its broadcast area) - it hasn't added viewers at all...

The earliest on-screen URL

I'd argue Twitter handles have even started to replace URLs.
On a related note, I remember several years back there was a bus stop advert that ran, which simply featured a search box with a search term in it (that I can't remember now). Upon searching said term, the first result was for some internet marketing company. I remember shortly afterwards, it seemed every advertiser was suddenly saying 'search for [insert company name or product]' or instead of directing people to a specific URL. That fad appears to have died off now.


ITV News London do that...seems a bit daft nowadays.
