Putting The Chase on twice a day might be seen as overkill and hurt it in the long term.
I imagine ITV are already asking for pitches for replacements. I’m not sure how long turnaround could be to launch a 10-20 part studio show but could they feasibly get a show for the Autumn
I disagree that it would hurt the chase by having it on at 9.25am and then 5pm.
Unless they were exactly the same episode shown then I don't see the issue here. There's plenty of episodes they can show.
I think itv are going to have to mix it up until they get the right show for the slot and that could take years to get right.
It's the perfect playground right now. I'm at work anyway at that time but hopefully they'll experiment a little. It could be the best thing to happen to itv in years.
