A sort of live variation on Gogglebox, Too Much TV, which begins on Monday 29 February at 6.30pm is a weeknight magazine show taking a look at the best bits of the weeks TV.  The presenters are Aled Jones, Emma Bunton, Sara Cox and Rufus Hound.

The tea-time show will air Monday to Friday live on BBC Two. With more TV available to us than anyone can keep up with, this new series will inform viewers about what’s on, be a place to glean insight and hear opinions, catch the watercooler moments you may have missed, and indulge in a good old gossip about the biggest shows on TV that week.

It will also delve into the archive so viewers have the chance to enjoy again some of TV’s greatest moments. Too Much TV starts Monday 29 February at 6:30pm on BBC Two.

Dan McGolpin, Controller of BBC Daytime & Early-Peak (to think there is such a thing as Early Peak!), says: “This is an exciting opportunity to bring a live magazine show all about TV to early evenings on BBC Two. Viewers will find out what to watch that night, whilst enjoying themselves immensely in the capable hands of our presenters, roving reporters and the production team behind Strictly: It Takes Two.”

He continued “each weekday, two of our presenters will pair up to present the latest TV news, welcome celebrity guests into the studio, showcase first-to-air clips and go behind the scenes to lift the lid on a little TV magic. We are also excited to have comedians Funmbi Omotayo and Susan Calman as part of our Too Much TV family – they will be out and about in their tireless quest to bring you the insider scoop on all things TV.”
