The Graham Norton Show BBC America

The Graham Norton Show BBC America - anyone hear why they started airing Season 18 four weeks ago and then stopped, replacing it with repeats and compilations? Seems like an odd move, since all the guests for the first five weeks have been on and promoting current film releases.

That is a very good question.
At first I thought my Tivo just wasn't recording it.
I have no idea but I have wondered...

I just realised that ours wasn't recording any of his shows in a while. I went to their Face Book page and they posted the following:
BBC America We hear you and we're sorry -- we've had unavoidable delays with delivery of 'The Graham Norton Show.' We truly thank you for your patience!

I've been getting the reruns. I've had that show on record all for years as it is one that often gets mixed up on first run date.

Should we tell BBCA about Bit Torrent?

I thought the same thing. Seems preposterous in this day and age they are having difficulty delivering the show to BBC America.

I'm sure it's not a technology issue and that they're able to physically get the episodes to the US if they want to. I'm certain it's a licensing/regional thing. Probably something like they don't have the rights to play the music in the US and if they do, it will increase their costs significantly.

Music shouldn't be an issue. They cut the show anyway for time. Cut out the musical guest. Problem solved.

I did some checking and it appears that it is being shown in the UK but not here in the USA. A lot of the season 18 is available on you tube.

so what happens when U2 does a week on Fallon? Music rights are the cost of business. I think BBCA doesn't want to pay what BBC wants for the show, likely based on viewership numbers. I constantly ask everyone I know, "have you ever seen GN on BBCA", to which I get two answers: "we don't get BBC" (?), and "oh, we'll have to watch that", and then I never hear from them again.
Look how many replies there are to this I started two weeks ago - not many.
To me, it's the best talk show on tv, but I can't get anyone I know to watch.
That's frustrating.
And yes, BBCA - there are so many ways to get this show, your reason is sad and pathetic.
Enough of the Star Trek reruns. Start playing some BBC!

None of this explains why they aired the first show of the new season and then went to repeats.

the only thing that makes sense is that BBCA didn't pay a debt. I sent them email two weeks ago and asked why .... no answer. Great PR, BBCA

still no email from BBC America on what happened to Graham Norton this year. Considering nearly every episode has involved topical, weekly film releases and their stars, starting it now would be pointless. Season 18 - I imagine we'll never see it over here.

There was a comment by someone a few weeks ago that some third party had bought the broadcast rights for Graham Norton in the US and had not licensed anyone to air it yet. BBCA would have to purchase the rights from that group in order to show them. I got the idea that no deals with anyone were done yet. So it appears to not be the fault of BBCA, but the people that have the US rights (I didn't pay any attention to the name of the organization).

wow, that would be crazy if true - how on earth could BBC America let this slip thru their hands? I'll search on these grounds. thanks

I don't remember where I found the explanation; it wasn't here on the tivo forums.

BBCA doesn't get special treatment from BBC, they have to bid on programs just like anybody else. They're a separate profit center.

sure, that's right. But BBC Canada runs GN, Top Gear, etc. They also run some news programs from time to time. Maybe BBC America should just rename itself The-Star-Trek-Generations-Marathon-Channel..... 😜

I started getting Graham Norton via alternate means when it was frustrating to see how much was being cut. Seeing a musical guest wave from the couch at the end credits when the guest hadn't been shown performing was the last straw.

Here's a quote from "Community Voices" blog:

Q: Do you know why new episodes of “The Graham Norton Show” are not being shown on BBC America? It has been all reruns Saturday nights.

- VIA TWITTER

The company that produces “The Graham Norton Show” was sold and the Weinstein Co. bought U.S. distributions rights to the series which required a renegotiation with BBC America, which has not yet resulted in a new deal for the show. If/when a deal is finalized, expect to see new episodes return to BBC America’s air.

Also, see article at:

Just noticed on my TiVo that the New Year's Eve Graham Norton show is scheduled for tonight. Don't see any other shows on the schedule though, of course I've already seen it anyway...

Yes, the one shown on Monday the 18th was a new one for BBCA. Very strange, maybe they've reached a deal with the distributors.

Our season pass recorded the NY Eve show this week. Hopefully things have been worked out so the show continues. I like the format of the show better than our night time ones. I like that the group of guests usually are seated at the same time and can make comments between them.

Well I guess it's just more of a British thing, way back to Parkinson, Terry Wogan and probably earlier. Maybe those guys got it from some US show.
