Of all the shows I've seen, this is certainly One of them.
With it's mix of serious segments and trivial fun it really bridges the gap between Mastermind and Hollyoaks. If you're a person who liked Blue Peter as a child then you'll enjoy the One Show.
Hosted by the lovely Christine Blakely and the effervescent Adrian Chiles the show swings between hand bitingly dull and simply sublime. The two presenters dovetail together nicely, with Christine's cheer counter balancing Adrian 's dour melancholy.
An aspect of the show that has come under critique is their selection of guests. Seeing guests such as Sir David Attenborough sat next to Dom "Don't Get Done, Get Dom" Littlewood is justification for your license fee in itself. But getting them to improvise a conversation about a cat that can drive a quad bike is pure T.V gold.
In conclusion, The One Show is a difficult beast to review. It's the John O'Shea of T.V. A Jack of all trades but master of none.
I found myself turning the TV off.
Go read a book for something actually interesting compared to bland "I love everything" presenters.
This show was enjoyable with Adrian and Christine and all they had to do was talk. Now I will not let anyone even leave it on in the background as they wait for Eastenders.
This is what happens when you have a broadcaster that has guaranteed income regardless of quality.

The review requires a minimum number of lines and it is unfair on concise people contending with dyslexia. Pad. Pad.
Whilst I agree the One (and only) show is a jack-of-all-trades, I would
argue that it is a master one thing: Survival. Great shows - good shows
- OK, tolerable shows always land on their feet in times of adversity.
What am I referring to? We all remember Carol Thatcher's disgraceful backstage antics. we can all remember the embarrassing headlines: "Thatcher banished from The'Wog'Show", "once a Thatcher, always a Thatcher". Yet despite her shocking onslaught, the One show kept it's head up, dealt with the situation and now is as healthy as ever. "The One show must go on" springs to mind.
The One show survived Carol Thatcher, it survived Hardeep Singh. Any show that can survive as many assassination attempts as Fidel Castro deserves a place in the hearts and minds of the British viewing public.
