The final episode of TV Burp aired earlier today, so we’ve decided to take a moment to reminisce about many great years of your favourite Saturday night show!
Back in 2001, a little TV show, picking up on the week’s TV highlights, started up. Over 10 years later and 150 shows, TV Burp has come to an end.
No more TV Highlight of the Week, Poetry Corner, matcap songs, Knitted Character and of course, the fights. TV Burp has become somewhat of an institution, with families gathering around the TV on a Saturday night for a right good laugh, but it is now no more.
When the show started, Harry had moved from Channel 4 to ITV after The Harry Hill Show was axed. As well as producing a new version of this show, he also created TV Burp. However, the show was very much a different beast to the polished product now. Originally found in the dark depths of a Thursday night, ITV struggled with what to do with it. Whilst it was getting a good audience, it was a questionable slot, especially as the comedy remained family friendly. After several years, the show eventually got a Sunday teatime repeat and after picking up an audience, moved eventually to Saturday teatime and then primetime.
