I wonder if they are going to get episodes in the can and ready to air in early July when these lockdown specials end. Assuming they filmed the lockdown episodes last week and this week can we expect them to film episodes for early July next week and how is it going to work as social distancing still needs to happen in the work place.


I might be wrong, but I think they've already started filming the post-lockdown episodes. Certainly they've stated the show will be back up to 3 times a week from the 29th June, so they must be confident they can get production going and enough episodes in the can by then for them to do that.

I thought they said the lockdown episodes were going to take 2 weeks to film and they started sometime last week. But they could have other actors filming other scenes at the same time. They do seem confident they will have 3 a week from 29th June so I guess reducing to 2 a week for the lockdown eps has given them that extra week.

Almost makes you wonder what the point is, because that slot is usually repeats. I at least expect it to appear at 6pm.

For some reason Ninja Warrior UK is still on next week. Of course that's a repeat - and since they just showed last year's final, it must be the start of an older series - it must be doing well for them to do that instead of ending the run because a series was completed.

Epic Gameshow moves to an earlier slot now that BGT is finished for now, and then they're showing James Bond. Why couldn't Casino Royale be an hour later next Saturday, like Captain America Civil War was? Then the programmes before could be on an hour later too, and Masked Singer USA wouldn't be on before some people even get home from work!

Series 5 repeats (the 2019 series) have just finished, so its Series 4 from 2018 next week.

The thing with Ninja is its light easy viewing, you can dip in and out of it, miss an episode one week, join in again another week and still know whats going on!

Its such easy viewing, makes you wonder why they have not made a Series 6?

Its sort of the modern day, gladiators...(which tbh could make a successful comeback if ITV could be bothered to do it right, i.e. full on arena and atmosphere, "we will we will Rock you" and all that....)

It's odd they didn't make series 6 of Ninja Warrior UK last summer.

Apparently a Series 6 was filmed earlier this year for broadcast this autumn.

It seems alot more suited for ITV2 than the main channel, The X Factor USA and Amecian Idol were never really seen that much on the main ITV, why does this?

Agree. ITV would be better off airing films, or frankly Tipping Piint/The Chase in the slot. Damned of they do, damned if they don't though.

Has the racing been scheduled yet - when I looked yesterday it hadn't but I'm sure it's on ITV next weekend.

They seemed to dither over it and it wasn't certain it was coming back. Think it was eventually recommissioned but not sure if filmed.

Although it is a show you can dip in and out of given how the 2019 series concluded the narrative is now lost going back to 2018.

Yeah, if they were going to show two seasons back to back, wouldn't it have made sense to air them in order? That makes me think showing series 4 again wasn't originally planned, but only decided on when series 5 repeats rated so well.

Good point about the racing. Radio Times doesn't show it in the schedule yet, but it should be on. ITV4 can't show it, they've got snooker.
