The Hasselhoffs set to debut in the UK

Post by Matthew » Tue May 24, 2011 4:22 am

Hi guys,

I was just channel hopping, and caught the tail end of an interview with David and his two daughters on the BBC breakfast show. According to the hosts, the show begins next Monday at 7pm on the biography channel, which is Sky channel 156. :good:

Hmm ... a shame it's on pay TV rather than a normal channel. Maybe I'll have to download it instead . . .

Just caught a tv spot for it and it said that it's playing on ITV1 on Monday. Can't remember the time. I know it's in the evening. I saw a very brief glimpse of KRFII.

Hope I'm on it! lol.

It's more likely you saw part of a trailer for Britain's Got Talent which is on ITV1 on Monday evening before Corrie.

ITV1 schedule for Monday evening:
19:30 Britain's Got Talent Live
21:00 Coronation Street
21:30 BGT Results Show
22:00 ITV News at Ten

If "The Hasselhoffs" was going to be broadcast on any of ITV's channels, it'd most likely be ITV2 ... a channel that
consists mainly of reality shows, celebrity stuff, re-runs of Corrie and Emmerdale ... plus that BGT spin-off show.

Saw the tv spot again, minus KITT this time. It definetely said ITV1! However, looking at the ITV guide now, it's nowhere to be found on that channel on Monday, unless I've overlooked it. Strange.

Strange ... there's nothing on ITV's website about "The Hasselhoffs" either. The only things that come up
on a site search of ITV.com are references to The Hoff's involvement as a judge on Britain's Got Talent.

It does say on itv.com somewhere that The Hasselhoffs is on the Bio channel on Monday at 7pm but nothing for any ITV channel. No idea.

Skav - The trailer you saw for The Hasselhoffs on ITV1, was for their appearance on Daybreak the ITV morning show on Monday morning to promote the show on Bio. Hope that clears things up The show airs in the UK from 6am!

MAY?

I thought it was March 16th, or around that date? I was told so. Is the May date confirmed? Me and my friends were already looking at dates for March because of it.

Indeed ... it'd be ideal for the current target audience of ITV2 ... fans of reality and celebs stuff.

"Next Monday" has come and gone. So did it air? Does anyone know how many episodes were actually created?

It appears to be airing nightly in the 7pm timeslot with the fifth episode scheduled for tonight.

To be honest though, I'm not surprised that it was cancelled so quickly in the US. I couldn't even sit through the whole of the opening episode due to the contrast between David's style of narration and the way he was speaking to his daughters. Essentially, it was The Hoff narrating, and David Hasselhoff talking, and that kind of clash of styles just isn't for me.

iirc, the second episode was much better. but the hoff isn't as well liked in the US unfortunately as he is in the UK or europe, so that also probably had something to do with the cancellation..
