Today marked the first ever episode of Drew and Shannon Live, which effectively serves as the replacement for Select Live which previously broadcast on C4. Here’s a mini-review of each of the main features of the show:
The set: This portion felt slightly underwhelming to be honest. It felt sort of echo-ey and more empty than that of Select Live (despite having more presenters).
The idents: Very impressed with these – they fit the theme of the show and give a good impression. The main intro was pretty awesome too.
The music: Makes it feel like it’s Select Live just without the viewer decision-making. It is nice to have some music on FOUR, however.
The repeats: I think it’s a great idea having it repeat on C4 later in the evening – it meant I was able to record it on C4 and actually review it! Thumbs up in my opinion.
The entertainment news: Pretty good, although it felt slightly random today. Perhaps it’s just one of those things that will improve over time.
Overall, congratulations Mediaworks on the first ever Drew and Shannon Live! Looking forward to what’s coming up in future editions; although I’ll have to watch it at 7:30pm on C4 due to work commitments.
