Now Harry Hill's Tea Time will go tea time

Sky rejigs schedules

Sky has switched Harry Hill's Tea Time to a more family-friendly Saturday night slot – which will actually match its title.

The second series has struggled in the ratings, with the first episode last month attracting just 85,000 at 8.30pm on a Tuesday.

That compares unfavourably to the first series, which ran on Sundays at 6pm, and launched with an audience of 399,000.

Now, with four episodes down and six still to air, Sky are shifting the programme to 5.30pm on Saturday nights, starting on February 3.

That show features Goodness Gracious Me star Sanjeev Bhaskar as the guest, with Twiggy joining Hill in the kitchen the following week.

At its peak, Harry Hill’s predecessor, TV Burp, drew in up to 7 million viewers to ITV.
