Just looking at the schedules on Digiguide for the next round of the World Cup where the joy of alternative schedules will come in and they've got two episodes of Alright on the Night scheduled, the first, provisionally on Monday 2nd July, entitled "David Walliams Presents... Return of Alright on the Night", and the second the next night being "David Walliams Presents... Revenge of Alright on the Night".

Can't find any press release or news articles about it. The last episode with Griff Rhys Jones aired in June 2016

It's great that everybody gets sarcasm.

Shame. It’s a show they shouldn’t tinker with too much considering it’s one of ITV’s current longest running shows and I think Griff gave the show an essence of what they had with Denis Norden but with his own twist of humour.

I could imagine David being quite similar but it wasn’t broke... so why fix it?

And I've not seen tickets for these two shows being touted on the regular audience ticket websites - and I do a trawl of them fairly regularly.

So expect linking with a straight set, and canned laugher - or just like the last couple of shows in the Norden era, a CGI back of people's heads added in post.

Maybe Griff Rhys-Jones didn’t want to host it anymore.

Is there even a need for this show any more? These days "hilarious" TV moment clips end up on gutter press and social media within seconds of them happening, and are quickly forgotten about seconds after anyway!

The show is mostly outtakes that won’t be seen live - I very much enjoyed the most recent editions and don’t see any reason not to continue. It’s certainly not a unique format anymore but it’s still the best compared to its imitators.

No filmed links - all V/O I'm led to believe.

I think it will lose something then, the links do add a sense of quality in a way I don’t think it mattered to You’ve Been Framed.

Also I could understand if it was a batch order but if you’re only doing two episodes it doesn’t really make sense.
