I don't like how they still call it 'The Kay Burley Show' when she's not there. Reminds me of the American network newscasts that have the anchor's name in the title, so that when said anchor is off, the fill-in presenter has to say '[Main presenter] is off tonight, I'm [the fill-in]'. It's a shame they couldn't bring back the Afternoon Live brand, really. Also, I'm not a fan of how, on the TOTH
on KB's show, they have the coming up bit before the top stories: it didn't work in 2005, and I don't think it works now.
Actually, I do think that the 2005 look was probably the best that Sky News has ever had, and I think it was a real shame that it was basically undone so quickly. In many respects, I'd say it was way ahead of its time, and had it launched more recently, I reckon it would have been received much more warmly than it was. At least it had some life to it back then - nowadays they seem to want to out-BBC the BBC. The journalism is as good as ever, though, and that is obviously the most important bit - I just think the channel itself is a bit boring to watch these days.
