Schedule reel

ITV1 are revamping their weekend line-ups, then. With Coronation Street and Emmerdale returned to weekdays (two eps of the former on Friday nights, an hour-long edition of the latter on Tuesdays), how do the first new-look Saturday and Sunday evenings stack-up? Well…

Saturday 12 January
3.05pm Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
5.45pm ITV News and weather
6pm All New You’ve Been Framed
6.30pm Harry Hill’s TV Burp
7pm Primeval
8pm Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Celebrity
9.05pm Thank God You’re Here
10.05pm Shaun of the Dead

Note, Thank God You’re Here, Paul Merton’s new improvisational comedy show based on an Australian series, is OTT’s tip to be axed after three weeks.

Sunday 13 January
3.30pm Lewis (repeat)
5.30pm Local news and weather
5.45pm ITV News and weather
6pm Dancing on Ice
8pm Heartbeat
9pm Dancing on Ice: The Skate Off
9.30pm Kingdom

So there you have it. Sunday looks particularly strong. I wonder what they’ll squeeze in once DOI drops down to hour-long episodes. Wild at Heart?
