BBC One

BBC One is Britain's most watched channel. The British Broadcasting Corporation puts its most mainstream and highest rated comedies on this channel, many of which are sitcoms suitable for the whole family. Friday night between 8:30pm and 10pm is where most new series are scheduled. Not Going Out, Have I Got News For You and Would I Lie To You? are amongst this channel's current hits. Before BBC Two existed, all the BBC's TV output was via this station thus many of Britain's most famous comedies are linked with BBC One.
