The 11 O'Clock ShowThe 11 o'Clock Show — Standard English naming conventions, and those of Wikipedia, are that prepositions aren't capitalised. Mel Etitis (Talk) 23:08, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Survey - in support of the move[edit]

Survey - in opposition to the move[edit]

  1. In modern usage, "o'clock" is a single word. Traditionally, it should be rendered as "o'clock" or "O'Clock", some sources use "O'clock", but I can't find a single source to support "o'Clock". Chris cheese whine 00:09, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
  2. Oppose, as per my discussions last month at User talk:DeLarge#Capitalisation rules and Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (trademarks)#"O'Clock" in a trademark or proper name --DeLarge 16:13, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
  3. Oppose. 11 O'Clock is in common usage, 11 o'Clock is not. Kyaa the Catlord 17:10, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

This was added a considerable time after the discussion was closed. Perhaps the "please do not modify it" needs to be bigger and redder. ;-) Chris cheese whine 21:40, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

#Oppose. Per many of the above assertions and comments. —Sarcha 45 18:29, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Iannucci[edit]

Wasn't Armando Iannucci a one time presenter of the 11oC show???? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.247.33.223 (talk) 21:28, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

No, he's loyal to the Beeb. Perhaps you're thinking of the Friday Night Armistice? Beanhead McGinty (talk) 01:39, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Popularity[edit]

Roughly how many people watched it? Many Wikipedia articles on television shows state their ratings. Why did it end after only two years/ I would have thought, due to having many good jokes, been popular with a young audience, and would have had no problem in getting comedians / comedy actors to appear on the show. A substantial proportion of it was topical, so new material would not have been difficult to find inspiration for. F W Nietzsche (talk) 15:02, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
