  • I have nothing against Russell Brand, but I can't understand what went on with the show last night, it may as well of being renamed The Russell Brand Christmas Show, because that seemed to be the only person Graham talked to for the whole hour!moreless

    I have nothing against Russell Brand, but I can't understand what went on with the show last night, it may as well of being renamed The Russell Brand Christmas Show, because that seemed to be the only person Graham talked to for the whole hour!



    The show's guest bookers should of just told Lorraine Kelly to not bother turning up, in the first 40 minutes of the show, Graham maybe talked to her twice, the rest of the time focusing on Russell. Fair enough their was some funny lines and parts of the show, but Graham has done alot better for Christmas espiacially on his Channel 4 shows.



    I don't understand why the shadow puppet thing or the office party game were used either, neither were that amusing. However the return of the 'Stay Standing' game and the brief appearance of recurring star in So & V Graham Norton, Betty Hoskins was memorable.



    Christopher Biggins interview lasted about 5 minutes like Lorraines, Graham seemed to repeat exactly the same questions that Paul O'Grady used for his panto special, but maybe that was just me? Next Russell again, personally I would have chosen Lorraine or Christopher to ring up the sexline, Russell took it upon himself to not even follow the idea Graham gave him, and made the next part of the show hard to understand and not really that funny.



    The Feeling performed throughout the night, their three performances were quite good, but I don't understand who suggested to sing 'Little Donkey' theirs alot more well-known hymns and Christmas songs that they could of chose to do.moreless
