I was also at the recording last night! It was a good show, and I too am glad Frank Skinner is back on TV. Although his radio show and podcast is still the best thing he does.
In terms of scheduling – they did indeed say it was going out at 8:30pm. Also, it’ll be on BBC1, a first for Room 101.
Its not scheduled to air until January so speculating a day is pure guess work at this stage, but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t on Friday nights. But as we are talking several months away I think even the 8:30pm time slot could change.
And to the poster who asked if Opinionated is coming back – it is, back on BBC2 in November.
