    As someone who finds it mind-numbingly boring, this is great news.

    Perhaps now they can find time to put Countryfile back to Sunday mornings/ early afternoon, where it fucking belongs :mad:

    Is it being rescheduled or shelved?

    Seems a bit weird. Eastenders omnibus on a Sunday afternoon and Antiques Roadshow on the evening Mixed with the gnawing anxiety of impending work/school the following morning traditionally always made for a depressing Sunday.

    Seems a good idea. They should do that with all omnibuses (?) and people can still watch it on Sunday afternoon on iplayer if they so desire.

    I liked waking up on a Sunday to green pastures and fluffy sheep.

    Is that why it wasn't on on Sunday!

    I switched on TV on Friday and the Omnibus edition was on then. I figured they must have moved it for some sporting event on the Sunday

    Eastenders is depressing, tedious, predictable, repetitive, clichéd drivel made by cretins, starring arseholes and watched only by those who are, or certainly should be, lobotomised.

    Interesting opinion, given your username. I had you for a fan :D

    I am a fan of very little. TBF, I loathe & despise all soap operas, Eastenders is no more abominable than Coronation Street or Emerdale Farm, etc. They're all just utterly, shockingly awful.

    With iPlayer on almost every device and lots of TVs now I don't know why they still bother with it...

    I don't like watching TV on a computer, I doubt I am the only one.

    Who said just computer? I said its available on pretty much every device, I watch via my xbox 360 for example others via their laptop, some via smart TVs...

    Eastenders is great - but I wouldn't want to spend my whole Sunday afternoon watching it. Especially now they also show it at 22:00 and on iplayer. (iplayer comes with virgin, which means I can watch it on tv as I also dont' like watching things on the computer.)

    Quite right, preferably coupled with the sort of crippling hangover that means you can't physically drag yourself away from the screen. Anything else just isn't British.

    The theme tune to Antiques Roadshow still gives me the feeling of dread that I've not started my homework yet.

    Well, a laptop is a computer. I don't have an xbox or a smart TV.
