More people should watch this, it's good.

Maybe they should get Harry Hill on?

There's every chance they will - he's got an ITV1 show to promote, which seems to be one of the criteria

Harry Hill isn't really an improvisational comedian though. His stuff is very tightly scripted.

Do they really need to promote Corrie? I meant that in the way that who doesn't know about it? Rather then it sells itself!

Corrie can actually be quite funny sometimes.

Lee, they're not promoting Corrie. They're promoting Thank God You're Here by having a "loved" Corrie "star" in it.

I see Vernon Kay is on this week's show, He might be ok.

Kirsten O'Brien, I don't know why she is on there.

Plus Phil Nichol is on again apparently.

She was on that comedy game show with the puppet.
She's evidently trying to branch out.

Since when has that had anything to do with ITV 'comedy' (in the past 15 years anyway)?

It's good when they have people who aren't funny on, it makes me feel better about myself.

I last saw Kristen co-hosting the fan banter football show which was a late night comedy football show on Channel 4 so I guess she is trying other things.
