This Time…with Alan Partridge (BBC One)
It has been 15 years since Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) last graced the BBC (in the meantime, there was a film, a book and a few shows on Sky). Now Norwich’s finest has been handed an ‘unlikely lifeline’ as co-host of This Time, a magazine-style TV show that sounds like another real-life BBC show. But for the broadcaster, this is his moment, “the perfect fit for a man whose broadcasting style has been described as ‘equidistant between chitchat and analysis.’” With so many fish in the barrel, there will be no shortage of targets, with one episode devoted to #MeToo. Prepare to hold your sides, they just might split.
