and what is it with JT, he hardly does a week without having a month off?




where have you been? they tried that and it flopped. Sky presenters just aren't famous or interesting enough to have shows built around them.



the reason i hark back to the days of two presenters is because that's what they did best.


Who said they'd be popular, Im know they wouldn't be, BUT it is cheap.

The star presenter thing is a fraud, ITV paid big bucks to get Kirsty Young from 5 only to discover that her show on 5 was popular because of the laid back style of it, it was different, and not because people liked Kirsty Young

The thing is, excusing the American and International news channels, I don't know of any UK news channels managing to succesfully make 'presenter based programmes' work. I even remember the Alistair Stewart show on the ITV news channel, even if that wasn't a sinking ship I doubt it would have lasted much longer.

The KAte Garraway clip is class, guy emails in saying if he won a million he would spend it on taking Garraway on a date as she is the best looking woman on telly and her co presenter then continues 'and we both know it would take a lot less than a million pound'

LOL. Is (was) it raining from where she was reporting?

If so, did she look grumpy and misreable?

Considering Steve Dixon managed to handle Tewkesbury, Evesham and the M5 for 2 days, having JT, Brazier and Burley in all three is a bit pointless.

Oh well, it is sky.....

Anna Jones was out and about aswell.

Great stuff, you are up to your necks in water, have no electricity, no water supply, everything you own is ruined and Sky sends in The Burley Monster.

And that clown on BBC was pathetic, screaming 'who are you and what are you doing?' at everyone who moved
