Yes, but at weekends they don't tend to have studio interviews, making being out of London less of an issue. The weather is something they could move too - very much a token effort but means something every weeknight is from Leeds.
I hope they don't go down the two studio route for the main show - personally never think that really works. IIRC they were looking to commission a daily live show to come out of Leeds.
It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.
