The Media Guardian is reporting that Terry Wogan is going to get his own chat show on BBC1. WTF? I know that Doctor Who did well in the ratings, the Parkinson comeback was a success and there’s been a whole series of nostalgia hits on ITV, thanks to the ITV50 celebrations, but whose bright idea was this? Don’t people remember what a disaster it was? This is a re-commission too far.
Wogan’s a good DJ, but he throws such low-ball questions that his interviews are the dullest things in the world to watch. They’re not the total horror that a Chris Evans or a Frank Skinner interview are, but this is not a good idea. Stop it now, BBC!
