"After Graham's short monologue"...[edit]

Hi, I took this section out when I was reworking the article. I notice now it's been re-included. I think I should justify why I took it out in the first place and see what people think. Here's the paragraph again for reference (added by

After Graham's short monologue, he always introduces two guests. If there usually is a third guest, they are usually introduced later in the show. If the first two guests are connected in some way (for example, Dustin Hoffman and his wife), they are the only ones introduced at the start. As for musical guests, it gets a bit complicated. The bands are always introduced at the end of the show and are always interviewed during the cool down. As for solo performers, some such as Enrique Iglesias come on stage from the very start. Others,such as Gareth Gates come on stage about 10 minutes before there performance for a quick interview. Finally, there have been a couple ,Mika for one, who just perform at the end of the credits and participate in the Cooldown section of the program.

The whole paragraph appears to be about show running-orders – i.e. production-level detail – I really don't think such detail is important. In fact, including too much trivia in articles is often what reduces their quality. It makes it too difficult for readers of the subject to follow and glean information from. Personally I don't see why it matters when guests are introduced. Perhaps, the number of guests is useful and when musical performers are interviewed – since this is sometimes only in the cooldown – (however, for the latter there doesn't appear to be much of a rule, so why try to make one?). The other thing that might be worthy of reintegrating is examples of the musical guests, however, there is already a complete list further down the page. Kevin Judson 23:35, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

Just to say, if there are no objections, I'll edit in light of what I've said above. Kevin Judson 02:11, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

G.Norton on BBC America[edit]

There is a slight error regarding the show's first series run on BBC-America. No episodes were omitted, but the sequence was not in the same order (newer episodes shown first, and then the the older episodes). If there is no objection, I will delete the error.

Recent corrections[edit]

Please do not remove airdates or links. The airdates that were removed have been confirmed by and Radiotimes as being aired at that date and It is also confirmed that the final episode of the year is an hour-long Christmas special. As for the link, this is a link to the American broadcaster BBCAmerica who broadcasts the show. This link was put in a few months ago due to the early reveal of the episode guide on their site. This site is not useless as it also serves as a link to the US carrier of the Graham Norton Show. (talk) 20:31, 15 December 2007 (UTC)samusek2

Well, can you please cite the new airdates? Also, it is probably not best to talk as if the event has passed (Note: Episode 12 was shown on a Wednesday (Boxing Day) and was extended to 1 hour.) as the event hasn't happened yet. I'll re-write that in the future tense. ~~ [Jam][talk] 20:37, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
Plus, the BBC America link needs putting in some context. Please either write it into the article, or find somewhere else for it. ~~ [Jam][talk] 20:38, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
I've re-written the bits I mentioned before. However, there is still a lot of uncited text on this (relating to the BBC America side of things). If you can find some reliable sources for these, then I'd much appreciate it. ~~ [Jam][talk] 20:46, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Christmas episode[edit]

I have added an extra episode for Series 4. On SROAudiences, as of this week, there are 6 tape dates left (as opposed to 5 if there were 12) Also, on the TV listings on BBCAmerica, the episode right before Christmas is titled Episode 13, jumping from Episode 10 the previous week (I believe BBCAmerica is doing the same thing as last year doing the final 3 episodes in reverse order, showing the Christmas episode before BBC2 does). Also, this series started a week before Series 2 did. So, it looks like there will be 12 episodes and a Christmas special. (talk) 21:36, 18 November 2008 (UTC) samusek2

List of episodes established[edit]

I've created a new page for the episodes, located here. But I've left series six on the main page to keep the article current. Iamthedoctor2009 (talk) 15:22, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Episode numbering[edit]

Wondering where did Wikipedia get the episode numbers from, as the BBC iPlayer has the Friday ep. (Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Stephen Merchant, Jo Brand and Blue) listed as Ep 19, and all previous episodes as one less than Wikipedia says. I would change the numbers myself, but obviously that leaves one episode hanging in limbo... (talk) 02:54, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Red chair origin[edit]

Ronnie Corbett was a guest on the 2008-05-23(?) show, and as a tribute to his regular bit on The Two Ronnies of telling a joke while sitting on an easy chair, they introduced a brown version of the infamous red chair. Could this have been the first appearance of the trick red chair on the show? — Loadmaster (talk) 04:27, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
