You Have Been Watching. Charlie Brooker. Image credit: Zeppotron.Tonight's crime-themed special edition of Channel 4's panel show You Have Been Watching has been postponed following the Cumbrian shootings.

The show's host, Charlie Brooker, posted on his Twitter account that: "Given recent events, we've decided to postpone tonight's scheduled ep of You Have Been Watching. There'll be a different ep in its place."

The Crime Special, the last new episode in Series 2, was scheduled to be broadcast at 10pm tonight, and featured guests Armando Iannucci, Josie Long and Rufus Hound talking about crime.

YHBW is not the first show to have been postponed following the recent events in Cumbria. Last night, an edition of soap opera Coronation Street was postponed because it involved an armed man holding hostages. A 'best of' episode of Harry Hill's TV Burp was shown instead. The hastily scheduled repeat - sandwiched between Britain's Got Talent - attracted strong ratings. It was watched by over 6 million viewers, over a quarter of the audience watching TV.

TV Burp is expected to get a further ratings boost tonight as ITV has pulled Coronation Street from the schedules again, and will show another TV Burp special in its place.
