As of May 2001, the best thing on British television - no argument!
You've only to read my imdb review of The Best of So Graham Norton DVD to know how much I adore this show - I record every episode on videotape so I can watch them over and over again, I have seen two episodes being filmed - the first one I saw was the episode with Sophia Loren and Ben Fogel, the second with Sir Elton John and Kim Wilde! I also cherish the autographed photo Graham Norton himself sent me, signed "For Barnaby, So Much Love, Graham Norton"!
So Graham Norton began in 1998 and by 2001, it became one of the most popular TV chat shows in England! Loyal fans tune in every week to see what shocking/embarrassing/sexual/perverted/unbelievable revelation Graham's audience will reveal, and to see which celebrity guests will be brave enough to chat with the cheekily irresistable Graham Norton!
Infamous for the hysterical websites that Graham downloads on the show, and for his phoning up wacky civilians (usually in America!), So Graham Norton gets better and better each week, and has made Graham a household name in the UK. Surprisingly, So Graham Norton is also incredibly popular with the critics and has won several awards, including a 2001 BAFTA for Best Entertainment Programme.
The current series has come to an end, but will be back in autumn 2001. I for one can hardly wait!
