Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding hailed as the ‘disruptive change’ Bake Off needs

New lineup will be a hit on Channel 4 precisely because it’s different from what audiences know, analysts say

It’s been referred to as “the stuff that LSD trips are made of”, but analysts believe the new lineup of The Great British Bake Off will be a hit when it launches on Channel 4 precisely because it’s different from the show audiences have grown accustomed to.

On Thursday, the comedian Noel Fielding, best known for The Mighty Boosh, and Sandi Toksvig, the Qi host, were announced as the replacements for hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, who left Gbbo after its move from the BBC.

Britain’s Top Show ‘The Great British Bake Off’ Unveils New Judge, Hosts

16 March 2017 11:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Britain’s most-watched show, “The Great British Bake Off,” has revealed its line-up of hosts and judges as it prepares to launch on its new channel, Channel 4, which outbid the BBC for the U.K. rights to the cooking series last year.

Restaurateur, food writer and novelist Prue Leith will be joining Paul Hollywood as judge on the show, which will be hosted by comedian-writer Sandi Toksvig, and comedian-actor Noel Fielding. Twelve amateur bakers will compete in the eighth season of the show.

On the BBC version of the show, which ended its run in October with a record 14 million viewers, Hollywood was a judge alongside Mary Berry. The hosts were Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. Berry, Giedroyc and Perkins reportedly opted to leave the show.

Channel 4 chief creative officer Jay Hunt said: “Paul and Prue have huge amounts of expertise and warmth. I’m looking forward to seeing them putting our great new bunch »

Why can’t British TV ever make a nightly topical talkshow work?

4 March 2017 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

ITV’s new 10pm show has been slated by critics and deserted by viewers

This was supposed to be a British answer to America’s late night entertainment giants. A nightly mix of topical monologues, comedy sketches and chat modelled on the format that turned Johnny Carson, David Letterman and a host of men named Jimmy into stars and recently helped James Corden become a Us household name.

Unfortunately for ITV its much-trailed new nightly talkshow, The Nightly Show, presented in its first week by David Walliams, with John Bishop, Davina McCall, Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc lined up for future slots, turned out to be more damp squib than firecracker with reviews variously calling it “awkward”, “unfunny” and “as flat as a Shrove Tuesday pancake”.

Corden might have succeeded because he’s smart – but Carpool Karaoke wouldn’t have been as huge with British pop stars

ITV's The Nightly Show pulls almost 3m viewers but News at Ten suffers

News programme records lowest Monday audience of year after broadcaster moves it to 10.30pm to accommodate Us-style show

The launch of The Nightly Show on ITV attracted almost 3 million viewers on Monday night, but the News at Ten recorded its lowest Monday audience of the year so far in its new temporary 10.30pm slot.

ITV is attempting to replicate some of the success of late-night talk formats in the Us, with a revolving cast of hosts each taking on a week of programmes for the next two months. David Walliams is taking the helm for the first week, with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, comedian John Bishop and chef Gordon Ramsay to follow.

'I like your jugs tremendously': The Great Pottery Throw Down is back

2 February 2017 5:14 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

We may still be in national mourning about The Great British Bake Off, but the next best thing returns this week – and it’s got far better innuendos

The marquee is in pieces. The bunting is boxed. The grounds of Welford Park in Berkshire – The Great British Bake Off’s bucolic nesting place – will never again be prowled by the four-footed innuendo-peacock that was Mel and Sue, or the nana of all Middle England, Mary Berry. Paul Hollywood notwithstanding, Bake Off as we know it – that calming, familiar presence on the BBC – is no more. It’s a time of national mourning. But there’s hope, because the next best thing is back.

The premise of The Great Pottery Throw Down is simple, because it’s lifted wholesale from its cakey forebear (both shows are made by Love Productions, also responsible for The Great British Sewing Bee). A group of »
