Added DiffLines:

* Most fans of ''Gran Hermano'' (the Spanish version of ''Series/BigBrother'') can attest that the show hasn't quite felt the same since original hostess Mercedes Milá decided to leave it behind for good after series 16, in 2015, and was replaced by Jorge Javier Vázquez. Before that, Milá had been replaced by Pepe Navarro for series 3, with a ReplacementScrappy reaction similar to the one Vázquez is getting now that led to the station promptly bringing Milá back for series 4.


* It's generally accepted that, aside from the general improvement in the standards of the competitors and higher production values, the thing that really made the second season of ''Series/RobotWars'' take off was replacing Jeremy Clarkson (who was deadpan and often [[{{Jerkass}} quite rude to the contestants]]) with Creator/CraigCharles as host (it helped that, while Clarkson genuinely didn't like the show, Craig's [[LargeHam bombastic enthusiasm]] simply ''couldn't'' be faked). Whether Creator/DaraOBriain has managed to live up to Craig's legacy in the show's 2016 reboot is [[BaseBreaker a matter of some contention]].

* Try and imagine ''Series/{{QI}}'' without Creator/StephenFry or Alan Davies for a second. Davies once missed a show, and they left his seat empty rather than replace him.
** No need to wonder how it would be without Stephen Fry for much longer. Time will tell if Sandi Toksvig can carry it on.

** And also Chris Tarrant makes the British version of the show what it is. The guy knows a heck of a lot, and never gives anything away with his [[CatchPhrase "Is that your final answer?"]]

Added DiffLines:

** It's also likely why the Australian one brought over Anne Hegerty as one of the Chasers, and then brought in Mark Labbett a few years later.


* Viewing of ''Series/AmericanIdol'' dropped drastically every time judges were replaced. When Simon left to run the American version of ''[[TheXFactor X-Factor]]'' in 2016, Idol ran its final episode.

Added DiffLines:

* For a great many British viewers, the only reason to watch the Series/EurovisionSongContest was for Radio/TerryWogan's acerbic commentary, to the point where the first words uttered by replacement commentator Graham Norton when the 2009 contest began were, "I know, I miss Terry too." This did not always endear him to viewers in other countries where the competition is, if not SeriousBusiness, at least seen as something more than SnarkBait.


* Both the Japanese and American incarnations of ''Series/IronChef'', with Chairman Kaga and the Japanese commentators/Alton Brown respectively. Gordon Elliott (in the ''IC Japan'' New York special) and Creator/WilliamShatner (the doomed ''Iron Chef USA'') have both tried to fill the host role- the former failed, the latter was damned awesome but got hamstrung by UPN's typical idiocy.

** The British version, ''You've been Framed'', was pretty much so-so and just cheap infill on an early Saturday evening, before the good stuff started- like the above mentioned ''Catch Phrase''. And then off-the-wall comedian [[Series/HarryHillsTVBurp Harry Hill]] took over doing the commentary and voiceovers. It's now the Harry Hill Show, with background film provided by members of the public.
