Yes, and it was the highest rated programme over the whole of Christmas. I always wonder what ITV were screening opposite it, because I know the Kenny Everett Show before it got 15.9 million, which...

In the past decade the only films they've shown on primetime Christmas Day were Titanic in 2000 and Harry Potter in 2004, and neither of them did very well. They're both far too long as well, which...

Well, Temple of Doom was only shown at 3.40, so not that different. The Indy sequence is the only occasion of three films in the same series premiering on Christmas Day (the first Shrek premiered on...

This is a bit late, but Christmas Night With The Stars in 2003 was basically Parkinson, a usual edition of his show but I think they had a few stand-ups on as well. And yes, it was opposite...

I would assume so, this would have counted as a midweek fixture list when they're only allowed one MOTD - the same thing that's happening next Tuesday and Wednesday - and presumably with Arsenal,...

We know it did alright now, but presumably the reason is because it can be buried amidst an avalanche of other specials so nobody would notice it. In the past, mind, we've had a pilot on Christmas...

Yes, not always though, I don't think. I remember when Wigan vs Man U was on the last day, they did indeed have two commentators, Alan Green and Mike Ingham, which I thought was a bit stupid because...

Yes, the other one was Spurs, again against Wisla Krakow, with Graham Taylor two years later. What I also used to like about those triple headers was that on at least one of them Colin Murray went...

It was 2006, and a search through this thread's archives confirms that Eurosport did indeed show Blackburn twice that season. On 28th September, they showed their match against Salzburg with TIM...

I am forever staggered by the success of Dancing On Ice, it's the most derivative and cynical programme ever made and the line-ups are rubbish, if you're going to fill it with soap stars at least try...

The Saturday 3pm kick-offs only ever have one commentator, because there are so many other reports, and usually John Murray does them because it's more like presenting than commentating and he's...

Yes, it was a Rangers game, a Sunday 1.30 kick-off. Sadly I can't remember which one it was as despite being the only live match on at the time - a rare occasion where an SPL match isn't opposite an...

For a while, of course, it was a five o'clock kick-off, ITV showed it there in 1993 because they wanted to show the Rugby World Cup Sevens before it, and it rated so well they kept it there for the...
