After the success of Thursday’s Alternative Election Night talk amongst David Mitchell fans has signalled that we are really missing a wry, witty and informed take on the current bizarre – and ripe for satire, political landscape. We feel a David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman lead weekly news show may be the only solution to help us make sense of it all. After the marathon broadcast I found myself thinking: ‘I wonder what David and Jeremy would be saying about all of this now?’
After 10 0’clock Live came to an end C4’s only satire comes from The Last Leg, unquestionably a great show, but also primarily a chat show. There is a gap in the market for a full on political analysis show for Channel 4. That’s why I want us to try and make this happen!
We can do this by tweeting C4’s @4viewers twitter feed telling them what we want which is roughly this:
@4viewers After the Election Night I’d love David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman to host some sort of weekly political show!
