Less Graham Norton

Talk show goes weekly

Graham Norton has confirmed his nightly Channel 4 show is to come to an end - to be replaced by a weekly edition from New York.

The comic renegotiated his contract after landing a 13-part series with America's Comedy Central.

Channel 4 will continue to air V Graham Norton until December 19, with the last week's shows coming from Hollywood.

Then the new hour-long format, NY Graham Norton, will launch on Friday nights in January.

Norton said the show will be "hot, tasty and packed with stuff - like a sort of Big Apple Pie".

Channel 4 said: "Graham has done V Graham Norton for 18 months, so he's trying out a new format."

Comedy Central signed Norton in September for a two-year deal, including a transatlantic transfer of his chat show as well as hosting various specials.
