We argue about this loads, but Kay Burley should take Vivs place on your weekday line up!

Alann King will have bored the views to death after 6 hours - how about you have Allan King and Paula. Then Lisa and David Foster

I have my theory why they don't have quality prime time programming. I've explained it before but here goes again for all new comers.



Basically, Sky News' audience over the last 7/8 years had remained fairly stagnant. This is despite, in that period, different types of programmes. Of course in that time the subscription base, and therefore potential audience, has increased. The competition has also increased. Indeed, the competition has appeared within the last 8 years.



So what does all this mean? Despite the types of programmes they put out, it makes no odds to the audience in terms of viewership.

Despite all of this, I passionately believe in quality prime time programming. As do many others on these forums. It appears the great Adam Boulton agrees:





What would you like to do before your career ends?



I think there is a lot of room for improvement in Sky News prime time programming. We're the best at covering the news but it's a big challenge to take on the main terrestrial TV bulletins.

the program would idealiy look like this



10.30- headlines



10.46- BREAK



10.50- sport



10.56- BREAK



11.00- headlines from news wall



11.05- business live from bloomburg



11.10- weather



11.15- BREAK



11.19- top stories



11.20- showbiz



11.29- most strange story of the day






Well theres a fresh and original idea. Perhaps they should think about putting something like that on at say . . I don't know . . . 5. You could give it some whacky rhyming name as a title. You know something like Five Live or Live at Five. Oh wait . . . hang on a second . . . *penny drops*

I think that there should be a whole new line up from 8.

8:00 pm - Sky News Live with Chris Roberts and Juilette Foster



8:30pm - Polotics Today - Live Polotics news from Milbank with Adam Boulton or Peter Spencer



9:00pm - Sky News Live with Juillette Foster (solo) - From a new studio. This will make it stand out from its Sky in the day. The Studio should be a dark blue with skys traditional red.



9:30 - Business Today - With David Foster Live from a studio overlooking Canary Wharf.



10:00 - Sky News at Ten - a basic rerun of Sky News at 9



10:30 - Sky News Review - Like Newsnight. - Presented from the Sky News Rooms with Chris Roberts.



11:00 - 12 Sky in Depth Day Review. - Similar to BBC 4 News - with Juilette Foster and Chris Roberts. Same correspndants with the same stories, but more in depth.





Sky News at 9 and 10 to be ran with new graphics - with the pole camera over the gallery . New dramatic theme tune!
