My5 is to get its first commission, a panel show called Comedy Bigmouths hosted by Ian Stone. Seems like it'll be recorded on Monday evenings for a Friday TX - starting on the 31st at 10pm.


Did this get pulled? I set Sky+ to record the repeat of the first episode last night but have some 'benefits' documentary instead, and episode 1 isn't available on My5 although it seems it was at somepoint as they tweeted about it yesterday. There's a repeat still showing at midnight on Tuesday.

They are also showing it on Friday 7th - might check it out to be fair.

That's the second episode.

My eyes may be deceiving me - the description designates it as the first episode, but Sky+ detects it as the second. I believe that I stand corrected, to be fair.

Aside from that, will be giving it a try (considering that I watch quite a few panel shows!)

You're right, it shows S1 Ep1 in the Sky description for Friday at 22:00 but the website describes it as episode 2 then: http://www.channel5.com/show/comedy-bigmouths/
It's supposed to be premiered Friday with repeats Saturday and Tuesday. Looks like the Saturday repeat of episode 1 was dropped for some reason. Not sure if it went out last Friday as planned but it's still in the schedule for Tuesday. It's all very confusing.

My 5, 5 USA+1 and 5 STAR+1 have (finally!) moved their DOG's to the corner of the screen (where they were prior to the re-brand). The +1 part of the logo has gone from 5 USA+1 and 5 STAR+1 as well strangely. They are also slightly brighter than they used to be.

Channel 5, Channel 5+1, Channel 5 HD, 5 USA, 5 STAR and Spike are unaffected and their DOGs remain untouched.

The timings seem to be off for the DOGs also, they used to be pretty quick in coming on when a programme started and came off screen as soon as the break bumpers started, but now they come on about 5 or so seconds into a programme and disappear around 5 seconds before the programme goes to a break/ends.

My 5's DOG is still in its new position (much better - also seems slightly smaller too) but the ones for 5 USA+1 and 5 STAR+1 have reverted to their old form. Perhaps this was an error, but then why has it been 'fixed' for some channels and not for others, and why only affect 3 channels to begin with? I wish they would just put them back where they were pre-rebrand as they were much better positioned and less intrusive.

The bugs for Channel 5 (HD & +1), 5USA, 5STAR has been moved to the edge of 16:9 safe.

After all that, Comedy Bigmouths was a bit of a letdown.

Good. I hope they stay there permanently.

Yes, all the DOGs now appear to have been moved to the edge of the screen again. Hopefully this is a permanent move. Unfortunately Spike's DOG is still huge and remains as is.

Was flicking through channels and noticed that Spike has reduced the size of its DOG. Remains in the far right of the screen.

Looks much better, not sure who approved of that ridiculous size.
