The Day Today/Brass Eye Return

Chris really should bring back one of the shows or another like it. I don't get how he couldn't see that now is the absolute perfect time in our current political/celebrity climate to do it.

What could he even satirise at this point?

To be honest, there's almost nothing crazy he could do with the news that hasn't already been done. Even the Brass Eye Special seemed weirdly old hat a mere five years after the series. Best to let it lie.

With evening television no longer being the dominating cultural factor it was between early 70s to mid-00s, any programme it was parodying would already have less exposure and less impact.

However, Amstell's show Carnage proves there are subjects out there that could be satirised with a bit more imagination applied to the medium the satire is used in.
