Spitting Image to return on BritBox

It was billed as a US election special but it didn't seem like there was a particular focus on it - there were more UK sketches I thought.

I do miss the 10pm ITV Sunday night slot where Spitting Image reigned for over a decade. It was also the slot that brought us the superb Rik Mayall in The New Statesman, a programme my family loved. Brightened up a boring, dull Sunday night.

Shame ITV do not return to the 10pm Sunday slot, bring Spitting Image back soon after it ends on BritBox, and commission some new comedies, panel shows etc.

The last commission specifically for that Sunday night slot that I can think of was Adrian Child’s ‘That Sunday Night Show’.

The chances of ITV commissioning new comedy for 10pm are pretty slim. It's just not worth it financially.

I still find it alien when anything gets shown after News at Ten that isn't a repeat.

They tried The Imitation Game on Sundays at 10pm in Autumn 2018. It didn’t do well.

I see this "US Election Special" included one sketch featuring Joe Biden, in which he had two lines.

Should’ve probably been billed as a Halloween special. Do generic ITV Saturday night viewers care too much about satire billed as “US Election” based?

Interestingly this was ITV's highest rated show on Saturday after the rugby and won its time slot so wouldn't be surprised if we saw more specials on ITV.

Annoyingly it isn't on the ITV Hub for those of us who missed it, so you still have to subscribe to BritBox if you want to see it.

I don't think that's wholly unreasonable given that the whole point of it is to drive viewers to BritBox.

In a sketch that was mostly based around Boris Johnson.
