What sort of ratings do the main channels get overnight? There must still be an audience there which is equivalent to what some minor channels would get in primetime.

If it's just a case of filling the schedule ITV rerunning This Morning overnight wouldn't be the worse idea.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Anyone remember the 'Come On' lady on Quiz Call? They had her sat there in a bikini for the whole evening and all she could say was 'Come on' They mocked her on Quizmania the day after and had Greg and Debbie saying it during a speed round and Greg shouted "Come on" when the next caller hung up on them.

And they're giving the impression nobody's calling, when in reality the lines are probably jammed and they're refusing to let people through while pocketing the cash.

This was always my biggest issue with these shows. It was disingenuous and done solely to make it look like you would get put straight through if you called, and that you were the only person watching who knew the answer and so must be really clever. It was preying on those who maybe aren’t so savvy about these sorts of things.

Well, the Channel 5 schedule for past New Year's doesn't look promising:

Quote:
Jan 1st into Jan 2nd

1:45 - Criminals: Caught on Camera
2:10 - Teleshopping
3:00 - Access (entertainment news, usually used as a film breaker)


Quote:
Jan 2nd into Jan 3rd

1:00 - Teleshopping
3:00 - Access


Quote:
Jan 3rd into Jan 4th

1:05 - Teleshopping
3:05 - Access


So, it does seem we are getting Teleshopping.
My tweet was read out on BBC Four's Eurovision coverage and Rylan Clark-Neal replied to it. That's all.

This kind of thing still continues. Put on ITV3 during the day, and look out for the incredibly challenging crossword puzzles in the ads. Preying on the vulnerable and the elderly.

Alongside the numerous funeral plan & Fred Olsen Cruises adverts.

Also with those dodgy looking commemorative coin adverts.
