Even though I hate his singing, I prefer the old style where he came on a and sang the theme tune when the guests were also displayed. It seems so cheesy to say who is coming up at the start of the show. And it seemed to flow easier. The start where he does the stand up bit seems to have lost something. And they have lost his recorded sketch bit, where he used to dress up as people, as the end of the stand up bit he would say "Now that reminds me of something/someone", then the VT
clip was played whilst he sat down.
It seems to be as good though with his banter with the guests during the interviews. This has been a comedy chat show night with the kumars at 9:30, graham norton at 10, and frank skinner at 10:30.
