|Talking of throwing a bomb at their schedule, it looks like ITV’s flagship catastrophe The Nightly Show is slated to return to the channel later this year – much against everyone’s better judgement.Even Bradley Walsh, ITV’s safest pair of hands, struggled with it. He performed one monologue that was so bad during the recording, the decision was made to cut it from the final broadcast. When Walsh found out his jokes had been canned, he hit the roof.
To mollify him, producers blamed it on a faulty camera, saying they had no secondary footage to cut to during the jokes and so had no choice but to bin the entire thing.
The camera was fine though. They just didn’t want to air it.
FYI: Whispers suggest that the show won’t have week-by-week hosts when it returns. Sound like they’ve settled on Dermot O’Leary.
