    In my opinion, Sky doesn’t really pay enough attention to it’s schedules on Sky News. The prestige channel is just a bit… erm… stale. They’ve been concentrating too much on Sky News Today recently. Which part of the schedule do you think needs the most attention?

    Dunno, but there should have been an option in your poll for the adverts. I don’t have a problem with much in the Sky News schedule, but the commercial breaks and that Halifax ad just before the weather drive me up the wall. It’s the one advantage that BBC News 24 has, no adverts. (It’s just a pity about their dull presentation. – They are getting better though, I’ll give them that.)

    there’s nothing you can really do about the adverts – they have to exist to fund the channel – no ads, no channel – it’s simple. I know they didn’t have many/any ads during the war last year, but i’d imagine they lost an awful lot of money then.

    IMO ITV News is worse for ads – every time I flip onto that channel they have an advert on.

    With regards to BBC News – its funded by the licence fee, so they don’t have to worry about advertising etc.

    That always seems to be the case with me too, although I think Fox News is even worse.

    I remember in the aftermath of the events of 9/11 Sky News didn’t have any commercial breaks for days!

    I hate adverts! Necessary they may be, but they are still bloody annoying at times.

    I would like to see some Programs on in the back half hour. Maybe bring back technofile, Showbiz, Money, Your call ETC..

    I was looking at Sky News’ ratings in 1998/9 and program’s like Sportsline, Fashion TV and Technofile were in the ten 10 for most watched programs on Sky News (per week)

    The Saturday edition of Sunrise (8am) is currently the most watched show on Sky News and has been for the last 4 weeks.

    (Ratings information from BARB)

    Is this because Emma is presenting the Saturday edition of Sunrise?

    Id say so and dont forget its normally Steve Dixon aswell whom Im sure the girls dont mind looking at!!

    But I do find it strange that the Saturday edition beats the weekday ones-like u would assume ppl are in bed that hour of a Sat morning, wouldn’t you?

    Well, Sky News does have a good track record at the weekends in term of audience; the evening bullitens often do well. It’s essentially, I believe, to do with the fact that terrestrial news programmes are thinner on the ground over the weekend.

    IMO Sunrise should try to get viewers from BBC Breakfast. Have more discussion like Brekkie, and make good use of the newswall.

    Stevo has a point about the adverts. Necessary as they are couldn’t they have fewer but longer commercial breaks. Also, the music used at the top of the hour when they are reading the headlines doesn’t sound as good since they changed it. They should have left it as it was.

    I’m surprised by the poll results to date. Now with Lorna, Sunrise is twice the program it was before (she joined).

    8-12 is bland. Weekend is dull.

    The poll was started quite a while before the Sunrise revamp though. I’d agree that Sunrise is much MUCH better now though.
