It is 4:00 AM here right now and we have a BBC America channel and this show is on it.

The guests are chef Gordon Ramsey and Juliette Binoche with musical guests, Scouting for Girls.

Is this on in England right at this moment which I think is 6 hours ahead of me--it would be around 10 AM there? 

If this is on at this time for those of you in England and you wouldn't mind telling me the guests for each night it's on, I might try to get into watching this.  There was another show on here that had Iron Maiden on it one night---awesome band!  I wish I could have watched that but I had to go to bed cause I had something to do the next day.

* Graham Norton is funny as fuck, but sadly it's not been on for a couple of months now. It was on Wednesdays and then a longer uncut version on Sunday evening.
 
* Your post was at ten past nine in the morning GMT. I'd be surprised if the American audience get his Irish gay humour (no offence to Americans).
 
* His near knuckle comments are ace. Nobody is exempt from the piss taken out of them. That includes the Beckhams, the Queen etc.
 
* You should find plenty on his website, which mentions his NEW SERIES next Tuesday......

what amazed me was how much he would say the word "shit".  Over here in America, they can say anything on TV, even curse God's name in vain which disgusts me, but they can't say that. 

Yeah, he was funny.  He and Gordon Ramsey had the audience cracking up.  He did a segment of pick up lines for dates which you guys call something different and those were hilarious and then after he shared them, they came from audience members, Ramsey and the female guest did a sort of love scene using them which was funny too.  I wish I could remember them but heck, it was 4 AM.  He does have a strange sense of humor.  He told an audience member he didn't care that she brought her daughter with her to his show which over here, people would find insulting and would probably get up and leave.

The time I posted was no big deal. I just rounded it back to tell when the show started here.  Thanks for the link.  I'll take a look at that.

* Last weekend I watched the first episode of the new series with Eddie Izzard (ok comic and ok actor) and Barry Shearer (does Simpson characters voices).

* I found it interesting that Shearer does both Smithes and Mr Burns and so therefore talks to himself.

* The feature website of www.catsthatlooklikehitler.com was most entertaining, as was the "i've got a big knob" comment someone had posted on it haha.

* Travis singing their new song was cool. One of my favourite bands and it's a shame they are more Radio 2 than Radio 1 these days.

I don't normally watch this show as Im not really a fan of Graham Norton, I find overly camp chat-show hosts like Norton and Alan Carr a bit annoying, but must admit Norton has had far better line-ups of guests lately than Jonathan Ross who's interviewees have been disappointing in recent times.
I also like the format Graham Norton uses by getting all his guests on the couch at the same time allowing them to interact unlike Wossy who generally just does one to one chats.

This past weeks show was hilarious, Will Smith was great fun even if his son Jaiden who was on with him was irriatating as hell, Jaiden's attempt at rapping while his Dad beat-boxed was painful, but thankfully this was rescued by Smith doing his Fresh Prince rap alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff on the decks and then Alfonso Ribeiro(Carlton Banks) came on and did the famous Carlton dances, it was a riot, it's all over YouTube at the moment. It was funny as fuck and a nice bit of nostalgia for people like myself who were fans of the Fresh Prince, I still watch re-runs of the show to this day, crazy to think Will's son Jaiden wasn't even born when the Fresh Prince of Bell-Air ended.

Michael Douglas was a decent guest as well and proved to be way more comical than you'd expect, but sadly he was left until last and couldn't follow the Smiths/Carlton/Jazz segment.

Graham Norton gets better guests because he takes it easy on them and these pampered Hollywood stars don't want to be probed. For example with the guests last week he could have asked Will Smith about his alleged open marriage, but he went on the right show to avoid that. Tom Cruise has been on in recent months and never got asked about his failed marriage or weird religion. Michael Douglas wasn't asked about his cancer or his wife being in and out of clinics. Heather Graham was on but was barely heard from apart from a lame yoga segment which Will Smith just had to get involved in to hog the limelight some more.

The format of the show with all the guests no the couch at once will always mean the big names or biggest personalities will get the Lions share of the spotlight on the show, as was evident with Will Smith.

As for asking more probing questions, pretty sure it's agreed beforehand what topics can and can't be discussed, most Hollywood stars come on chat-shows to plug their latest movie(s), pretty sure no chat-show host would be allowed to ask them deeply personal questions.

Next friday he's got one of his strongest line ups of recent times with George Clooney, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Dwaine Johnson and Snoop Dogg.

Obviously he's had bigger names but it's the fact that from my memory it's guests who have never been on or if they have it's very rare, rather than the same old names he has on every single series.

George Clooney definately hasn't because Graham last weekend at the Baftas was creaming over getting him as a guest because he's not been on before and doesn't think Clooney has been on a UK chat show before.
