The Paul O'Grady Show
This comedy Talk Show ran from 2004 to 2005 on ITV, 2006 to 2009 on Channel Four, then back to ITV from 2010.

Paul O'Grady, previously best known for his Disguised in Drag role as Lily Savage (a character now retired), hosted an hourlong show at 5pm on weekdays, before switching to a weekly show at 9pm in his retun to ITV. The show features interviews, games and music.

There are also his pets. One pet dog, Buster died in 2009, but O'Grady has another, Olga. In the afternoon run of the show, the dog sat on his desk. In the new run he's been accompanied by other pets, including a pig.

This show contains examples of:

  • Channel Hop: From ITV to Channel 4 and back.
  • The Ghost: Bert, a producer who Paul addresses every now and then.
  • Leno Device: The show made an appearance in the Doctor Who series four finale on the occasion of Earth moving to a new place in the universe. Apparently Ianto is a fan.
  • Pantomime: An annual one.
