Working from home has done nothing to dent Graham Norton's chat juggernaut and the calibre of guests (confirmed nearer to showtime) is as A-list as ever. One of the highlights of Norton's video interviews is that you get to see the celebrities' houses, while the lo-fi musical performances are equally disarming.

How shows are coping without a studio audience

If somebody tells a joke, and nobody is around to hear it, was it actually funny?

Steven McIntosh, BBC, 28th April 2020

How long can "live" shows, especially those allegedly based on wit, survive video-calling and self-isolation? Graham Norton seems to work, chiefly because he's good, and talking one to one, with decent guests, and pauses before question and answer. Plus, he gets to mull on the concept of his own show, the big red chair being designed to let "ordinary" people tell their own "stories": "That's the concept anyway. In practice, it's usually New Zealanders telling how they shat themselves."

Can a chat show work without an audience?

The Graham Norton Show returned on Friday night, but this was the Coronavirus version. The guests were onscreen at home and there was no studio audience. No studio in fact. Norton conjured one up through the magic of television. But apart from that there wasn't much magic on display.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 11th April 2020

It is comforting to see that it's business as usual for Norton's chat juggernaut as he welcomes virtual guests to his sofa for the 27th series. The lovable presenter is filming at home and in this even more relaxed format, the stars will keep the stories coming over a few glasses of wine.
