The BBC have already said "they're happy with the ratings" and that "viewers will get used to the new format."

That's BBC speak for. "Sod off it's our ball and we just don't care."

Wimbledon 2Day

This naff title sums up this "dog and pony show."

Why do they need an audience?

The introduction seemed more like the beginning of a game show,...

I think some of these commentators are not on long term contracts, so move between channels for different events. It'll be more cost-effective.
