The Jonathan Ross Show is a British chat show presented by Jonathan Ross. It was first broadcast on ITV on 3 September 2011 and currently airs on Saturday evenings following the conclusion of Ross' BBC One chat show, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, in July 2010.

Production[edit]

The show is filmed at The London Studios, with one exception of one episode in 2013, where the episode was filmed at BBC Television Centre. In November 2011, it was announced that Ross had signed a new two-year contract to host another two series of 10 episodes each and a Christmas special. A year later the show was later renewed for a fourth series to air in 2013.[2] In March 2013, Ross bemoaned his declining ratings due to a poor selection of guests. Some top stars prefer the atmosphere of The Graham Norton Show.[3] He also confirmed that Series 4 had been extended and that he had signed to present one more series of 30 episodes.[4][5] In July 2013, despite previous announcements that the show would end in late 2013, ITV commissioned two more series to air in 2014.[6]
