I was just reading some comments about the US talk shows, and it looks like none of them will be returning any time soon to their studios, with the likes of Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel resigned to the fact that they are going to be producing their shows from their homes, possibly for the remainder of 2020.
How will UK talk shows do? We really only have two - The Graham Norton Show and The Jonathan Ross Show, with The Last Leg too.
The Last Leg confirmed they will be back in late October 2020, but will they return to the audience less studio environment they did in March 2020 or will we be getting the same lock down versions via their own homes?
That could also be a way to get the UK Chasers back on the Aussie version if they can work around any delays that would cause. Could also make it possible for the other UK Chasers to appear as guest Chasers. Although I doubt they’d want to record many episodes that way.
I know with QI each series is based around the letter but I assume they can broadcast episodes within the series in any order they choose.
It is up to the production team to decide when each episode should air. the producers Piers Fletcher and John Lloyd will certainly have a say over the order of transmission they provide to the BBC, as they feel a certain flow of episodes would work better.
