The Saturday Show

Show Summary

The Saturday Show aired originally with Dani Behr and Joe Mace presenting 9am-12pm Saturday mornings with the occasional spoof from Tiny and Mr Duck.

When the CBBC Channel launched, an additional extra hour of mayhem called The Saturday Show Extra began with Sarra Elgan.

The show was recommissioned for a second series the presenters changed though, with Simon Grant and Fearne Cotton taking charge the pair hosted "Top of the Pops Saturday" which took over from 11.15am-12.00pm and Tiny and Mr Duck were given their own slot called The Tiny and Mr Duck Show airing at around-a-bout 10:50am.

When the show moved to Glasgow Tiny and Mr Duck left the show and old favourite TSS Karaoke returned. The Saturday Show Extra still continued with Sarra Elgan, Fearne Cotton and Simon Grant presenting, the Extra show was soon moved to be directly after the main show but only available to CBBC Channel viewers.

Another spin-off came in the form of The Saturday Show Remix broadcast on Sundays at 12pm, featuring the best bits from the show the day before.

The shows biggest change happened in the Spring of 2004, the show now Aired on BBC 2 not BBC 1 (due to the Olympics) like before and aired from 8.30am till 10.00am were The Mysti Show and a new look Top of the Pops Saturday followed afterwards. The Show lost Fearne Cotton and due to the new revamp, The Saturday Show Extra was cancelled. The Saturday Show Remix had been cancelled so only Simon and Sarra were left. Originally, they were going to front the new look BBC1 show but Sarra didn't like the idea of not doing TSS Extra, so quit. CBBC presenters Angellica Bell and Jake Humphrey were recruited and became the new faces of The Saturday Show alongside Simon.

Since then the show has returned for another series with these presenters, but airing on BBC 1 from 9am to 10.30am. Some episodes also went on to 11.00am.

Their has being rumoured, that by 2007, their will no longer be a live magazine show [Such as TSS] as part of CBBC on a Saturday morning.moreless
