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.
Explain to me where in my previous statement did I say/predict it would be a failure? I didn't. I like Andrew Neil, and I would have preferred This Week to have continued. Good Luck to Andrew - I hope it works, I just think it would be better in a slightly later slot.
my guess it will fail after a few weeks, unless they can attract a loyal audience at 7pm.
Also that statement is a bit like saying “it will fail, unless it doesn’t”.
I also said - unless they can attract a loyal audience at 7pm - I never said it will be an utter failure, time will tell if they get an audience, and I want it to succeed, as This Week did, it is just politics at 7pm is not appealing to viewers, with Channel 4 News doing their bit, I suggest a slightly later slot, before 10.00pm would be better.
