ITV plans to shift News at Ten for new nightly entertainment show

15 September 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Broadcaster thought to be planning James Corden-style talk show, but insists flagship news bulletin will not move permanently

ITV is preparing a new entertainment show to air nightly at 10pm that could displace the News at Ten for at least eight weeks.

The plans are thought to be an attempt to create a new Us late-night talk programme in the style of James Corden’s The Late Late Show. It would go up against the BBC’s flagship 10pm bulletin, pushing the News at Ten back by half an hour.

ITV denies it's moving News at Ten – but is 'relaxed' about occasional switches

1 September 2016 2:31 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

New director of television Kevin Lygo has no plans to permanently move bulletin, say sources

ITV’s new TV chief is to take a more “relaxed” attitude to occasionally airing News at Ten at a later slot, a strategy that would free up more primetime space and make for fewer clashes with the BBC’s 10pm bulletin.

It is understood that Kevin Lygo, the ITV Studios boss who replaced Peter Fincham as ITV director of television earlier this year, has no intention of permanently moving its nightly news bulletin to avoid the so-called “battle of the bongs” with the BBC.

“To Murray’s credit, he does get the forehand through the court a lot faster than in the last 18 months… so it was a positive miss.” This was exactly the kind of comfy-bath thing we’ve become used to since 1966, arguably since the end of empire: partisan BBC commentators talking up a plucky Brit with insane praise. Paul Hand and Simon Reed were the DJs on hand as Andy thwacked it so firmly out via the tramlines at a crucial stage of his final against Del-Boy Potro, but »

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 6 review

Line Of Duty cements its status as the most thrilling drama on television with a stunning finale to a stunning series…

This review contains spoilers.

Like many a modern idiot, around my wrist is a special watch that monitors my heart-rate. It syncs with my phone and shows me a graph of what my pulse is doing at any given moment. If I were ever to kill someone, I suspect it could be used to incriminate me. Murder must play havoc on the cardiovascular system.

Fifteen minutes before the end of Line Of Duty’s series three finale, you’ll see a significant spike on the graph. My body was sitting lazily on the sofa; my heart was doing laps of the park. This might be the first occasion on which I hand over my TV reviewing responsibilities to a Fitbit.

BBC coverage of EU referendum results set to be fronted by David Dimbleby

14 January 2016 4:17 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Veteran broadcaster poised to be named for high-profile role despite his contract ending this summer, after the success of his general election coverage

David Dimbleby is set to front the BBC’s coverage of the EU referendum results despite reports that he would step back from big political broadcasts after the general election last year.

The 77-year-old’s contract expires this summer and the decision to allow him to host such a nationally important poll will come as a blow to other BBC big hitters, especially Huw Edwards, anchor of the News at Ten.

Daily mail setting me against the Dimblebys: but I Never said he shd go Now! Stop stirring!

ITV's Tom Bradby swaps battle of the bongs for festive bells

4 January 2016 5:11 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

News at Ten anchor takes break of nearly three weeks over Christmas as fellow presenters step up for shifts

The rise from political editor to anchor of ITV’s new-look News at Ten has clearly taken it out of Tom Bradby. Bradby, who stepped into the role at the beginning of November, did his last newsreading stint on 17 December before heading off for some Christmas rest and relaxation. He will return to screen for the first time in 2016 on Monday, an extended break that one wag refers to as sticking to the “parliamentary holiday’’ regime of his previous beat. The other main ITV News presenters all put in appearances over the festive break – Mark Austin on the 28th, Julie Etchingham on the 29th, Mary Nightingale on the 30th, Alastair Stewart on the 31st and Nina Hossain on 1 January – keeping the hot seat warm for a well-rested Bradby. While Bradby was off on leave, »
