With a bigger audience than ITV’s coverage of 6-7th May (sorry Guido Fawkes and Will Straw), Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night drew more than 1.6 million viewers. Endemol have now adapted the format into a 15-week series going head-to-head with the BBC’s pedestrian nightly news bulletin.

Anchored by David “Peep Show” Mitchell alongside Charlie Brooker, Jimmy Carr and Lauren Laverne, Scrapbook is hoping for the bastard offspring of The Daily Show and Chris Morris’ The Day Today.

10 O’Clock Live starts tonight at, erm, 10 O’Clock.
