And Richard & Judy’s new position is…

…back at teatimes.



Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan’s chatshow on Watch is to move to a 6pm slot in January.

Writing about the shift, Madeley has said: “…Talking of EastEnders, both it and Coronation Street – television’s biggest hitters – dominate the 8pm-9pm slot and our viewers have been telling us they are torn between watching us and their favourite soap. Rule one of telly is always listen to your audience so we’ve decided to test out the 6pm-7pm slot after Christmas. (We’ll still be repeated twice next day, both on Watch and Watch+).”

    It looks like the risk hasn’t paid off with only limited ways of watching Watch, even being experimental in these times can’t guarantee viewers. Maybe time to move to Cornwall R and J…

    Well, considering that it was getting far less than UK Gold +1 got at the same time before the rearrangement (and remember that Watch took UK Gold’s EPG slot, not the timeshift channel), it’s an embarrassment on just about every level for them.
