If anyone’s been following the Edinburgh TV Festival, ITV’s Director of Television has talked about the Nightly Show.
He concluded that it never worked at a 10pm slot - and the fact that it struggled to find its feet with the idea of revolving hosts each week.
Sums it up really. Seeing that ITV has quickly seen what went wrong with the Nightly Show (with all of the points raised in this thread), they could continue with it, but at a later timeslot and with a permanent host.
Incidentally that was also hinted at, partly by Lygo.
'Even by our standards, that was remarkably unproductive.' - Andrew Neil
