They were already mentioned. It is what prompted me to post Freakazoid in the first place. Can't have too much Pinky and the Brain, though

I saw this thing on C5 about 1995

Was Chris Evans really considered cool in those days? I can't recall to be honest.

Don't Forget Your Toothbrush and TFI Friday: The Early Years showed he could be a pretty class presenter when on his game. It was a shame (though probably inevitable) he vanished up his own fundament.

Much as I can't stand Evans (I've never liked him as a presenter or DJ and still don't to this day), in his defence he has said as much himself and is eternally ashamed and embarrassed about the whole R1 and Virgin affairs, not to mention his numerous romances, and, I understand, he is now the model of a perfect decent gentleman, humbled by his experiences.

I still don't like him, though.

Totally 90's - remember the complete fuck up at launch? You had to be on top of a mountain holding a coat-hanger to try and pick it up.

Yeah, he actually was a good presenter when he gave a shit. I really enjoyed Don't Forget Your Toothbrush when it was on

I was in Luton and we were fine. I distinctly remember the Jack Docherty Show (what on Earth happened to him?)

C5's half arsed attempt to have a British equivalent of the David Letterman show which failed miserably. It didn't help that Jack Docherty had zero charisma and the show had a budget of about 1.25.

No idea where he is now.

Still writing comedy shows. He has a new radio comedy with Charlie Higson and Katherine Parkinson, started last week.

I love the fact that radio isn't seen as 'the last resort' for writers or actors in this country. Some of our 'big names' still jump at the chance at doing plays for Radio 4 for example, it's a bit inspiring.

Oh yeah, launched in a blaze of glory and on-screen static by the Spice Girls if I recall.  The most repeated joke that year was the one that compared a wedding to the Ch5 launch - cost a bloody fortune and the reception was still crap.   Then there was the problem with the fact that the frequency was also used by VCRs which often had to be reprogrammed.

As a huge fan of most of the stuff Docherty has done over the years (particularly Absolutely and Mr Don and Mr George), I have to respectfully disagree with the above statement.

The fact of the matter is that 5 paid him stupid money to do something he knew all along (and said many many times, even on the show) wouldn't work, wouldn't last long and that he always said he wasn't right for (if memory serves he spent quite a lot of time in his intro to the first ever episode saying he had no idea why 5 had employed him as a chat show host, but no one of more importance was available and he was nevertheless happy to be able to pay for a new sports car). And, after some reasonably high profile guests in the first couple of weeks, he was quick to say that the show should be cancelled because it had got to a point where he was more famous than most of the "guests" they were getting on there.

I didn't think it was that bad - although Graham Norton deserved the boost he got from when he sat in has host.

Mmmmm...much as I do like Docherty, it wasn't great.

Much MUCH better was the Beeb's attempt at a similar show around the same time - Danny Baker After All. That was genuinely good and, I have to say, better than Letterman (which always seemed a bit false and forced to me). But no one watched it cos it was such a departure from all the other chat shows the Beeb had had up to that point. Rick Wakeman's weekly spot was brilliant - it pretty much completely ignored his "keyboard wizard" status and instead focussed on "a funny thing happened on the way to the studio" proto grumpy old man routine. And, according to Wiki (I have to say I don't remember this at all), but the house band was none other than Mark Kermode's Railtown Bottlers!

Slight problem. I have never been able to stand Danny Baker. Absolute marmite. In the same category as Harry 'never knowingly caused a laugh' Hill.

Right, gotcha. I have time for both - I like Baker's smarts, and Hill's silliness and dogged determination to give out the punchline to a joke WAY after it's been set up.

Mmm - Baker so very obviously liked Baker's smarts too. In an arrogant tosspot in your face way. 

Aaaaannnnnnnd - calm. Vent over.

I feel a deep need to go watch Absolutely now, though. I guess Who Dares Wins is a bit too old - I've always wondered if rewatching that would be as funny.

It is too old for this thread but yes - a lot of it is.

Not as funny as Chelmsford 123, though...

Your probably right there. I always found it odd that a nightly entertainment chat show has never worked on UK tv. We can manage the daytime shows (This Morning) or early evening shows (The One Show) easily but have never managed to replicate a decent Letterman/Leno type of format. These always seem to be relegated to the weekend slots, Graham Norton or Jonathan Ross etc.

Wogan ran for years several times a week - perhaps a little before your time?

That wasn't a late night show, if I remember it was usually on about 7 or 8.
