Yes, I felt EastEnders fitted into the schedule better when it aired early evening and then a bit later. Agree with other Call the Midwife is just too long too, though is Strictly shorter than usual - think that may have been 90 minutes in previous years.
Although the last couple of episodes of Car Share were not great at all throwing them out in the middle of the year seems like a waste - that would have fitted into the Christmas Day schedule quite nicely. Hopefully to if the Not Going Out live special works this year they'll get a chance at the Christmas Day slot next year - they've had a couple of Christmas Eve episodes which have done quite well I think, and more importantly been quite funny.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
