The Christmas day schedule on BBC 1 is truly dreadful. Its the worst in years, surely?
There are some regulars:
Strictly now occupying the Doctor Who slot.
Michael McIntyre has been promoted once again to Christmas night, and since he pulls in big ratings on a Saturday, Michael is the perfect family friendly entertainment for Christmas night.
The usual Call the Midwife, 90 minutes is a very long special.
Eastenders as always, usual mix of sadness, murder and complete bleakness for your Christmas night
The obligatory Mrs Browns Boys - I am getting a bit tired of this show now. Get ready for the recycled jokes, 1970s material, pretend "outtakes" left in (usually rehearsed as I have discovered) and the feel good Christmas singalong at the end.
Why is Outnumbered on at 10.50pm? This I assume is the 2016 Christmas special? BBC seems to have given up after 10.50pm.
