The Jonathan Ross Show is a British talk show presented by Jonathan Ross. It was first broadcast on ITV on 3 September 2011 and 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. as some top celebrities 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]

Ross has stated that, starting with the seventh series, the programme will be given a "shake up" to its format to keep it fresh.[7]

On 20 October 2014, ITV announced that Ross had signed a new contract to continue his chatshow until the end of 2015 consisting of two series and a Christmas special

ITV’s Director of Entertainment and Comedy Elaine Bedell said: “Jonathan is the king of talk shows and a valued member of the ITV family. He continues to attract the biggest names in showbiz onto his sofa and I am delighted that he will remain on the channel until at least the end of 2015.”[8][9]
