All very true - I don't think Corrie primary was the reason why The Button didn't find it's feat - so perhaps I phrased my initial post a little clumsily - however the scheduling of it being relatively late on a Friday night for being a more family friendly light entertainment show seems odd, when it seemed perfect for an early Saturday evening slot. Ah well, guess we will never know now!
Well, it's true enough, and it probably also didn't help it being launched on the first hot day of last year, I remember it was boiling while episode one was on.
It's swings and roundabouts, though, because people always say they want to see new things in the schedules and excitement throughout the week, then when they try something in a different slot it doesn't always work. It's a bit like how C4 said they wanted to show more entertainment throughout the week rather than just on Fridays, so they put Host The Week on in midweek and it died on its arse. That said, it was crap as well.
