This is a show in which comedian Russell Howard takes a light-hearted look at the news this week. Sound familiar?
The Russell Howard Hour does on the surface sound just like his old BBC show Russell Howard’s Good News. In fact, if taken into account the former’s extended edition, Hour seems like Good News Extra plus 15 minutes of adverts.
But if the previous form is anything to go by, Howard should be as good as ever. You do wonder, however, if his new bosses at Sky are going to give him as much creative freedom as he had on the BBC, or maybe a bit more.
The Russell Howard Hour is on Sky1 at 22.00.
