      • Christmas (almost) Cancelled: After announcing that the traditional Top of the Pops Christmas Special was to be replaced with a series of Christmas themed editions of TOTP2, many complaints were received by the BBC. Additionally record executive and television producer Simon Cowell offered to buy Top of the Pops and relaunch it on ITV. The BBC refused Cowell's offer and shortly after announced their redecision to produce a Christmas special and also a New Years Special. Rumors also surfaced in the press that the BBC wished to relaunch the weekly episodes during 2009. This has, so far, been denied by the BBC.
