So I guess it will be This Week in all but name? The only reason Andrew left This Week, and pulled the whole programme down with him with his exit was that he just found it too late at night. 7pm, up against the might of Emmerdale, The One Show and Channel 4 News - my guess it will fail after a few weeks, unless they can attract a loyal audience at 7pm.

Surely the whole point of this (and Channel 4 News) is to provide an alternative to the likes of The One Show and Emmerdale at that time.

Yes, although back in the four channel analogue era there was a sort of gentleman's agreement between BBC 2 and C4 not to compete with each other with the same genre programmes in the same timeslot. That's all out of the window now of course.

Talk about being negative.

Andrew Neil is widely acknowledged as the best political interviewer around right now.

I can’t see him suddenly becoming a failure overnight.
