Hi everyone!
There seems to be no discussion lately on the best breakfast show
So I have opened this thread for GMTV discussions

I would like to start with the studio and graphics what does everyone think about them?

No need for a new theme tune - the one now is excellent.

Also does anyone else find it funny at the top of the hour with what Penny does e.g. on the telephone...

PEnny's funny bits at the start are all i tune in for!

Did anyone see GMTV last week, at 7:25am 5 min before the weather Andrea was sitting on the newsdesk, the camera got a shot her at the desk because Kate and Ben were talking to her about snow or somethin

Andrea would look good reading the news Laughing

I like the Newshour theme tune, but I'm not too keen on the Today theme...

I like both the themes. I doubt the Today theme will ever be changed dramaticaly. It was a couple of years ago, but it wasn't popular, and was soon changed back. There is actually a clip of that short - lived theme on Tv Ark.

God the whole of GMTV desperately needs new theme tunes, sets, graphics, presenters...the lot! While yes I can see that it appeals for a set audience and does feel 'warm' and 'comfortable', it is so unprofessional and dated next to the likes of BBC and Sky News, even with the fact that it is a less news-based programme. I watch it every morning but still...2005 guys!

They've just got a new set last year !!!!

However I agree about the graphics package, which I think looks quite cheap. But I like the rest, and the theme is brilliant.

Thats what i like about GMTV. It doesnt try to win you over with big flashy graphics and news walls and projectors etc. Its all about the people & guests on the show itself. I think thats what makes GMTV different, it doesn't follow the crowd so to speak.

Why has everything got to be bloody news based?! Why should it be doing exactly what the BBC are doing when it consistently rates better??

However, change that god awful blue generic town/city backdrop it's absolutely dreadful...

Compare Australia's Today show from Channel 9 to our crappy GMTV studio:

Today Australia 1
Today Australia 2
