Late Show With David Letterman axed from Diva TV

According to the Diva TV website, the Late Show With David Letterman will be axed from the channel from next week onwards. From Monday 9th June, the 9pm timeslot will go to The Oprah Winfrey Show.

This is a huge disappointment for UK fans of Letterman – it has only been about nine months (October 2007) since it came back to UK television and now we’ve lost it from our screens again. We thought Diva TV were doing a great job giving it a secured 9pm timeslot every weeknight and reruns on weekends. They had been giving the show a lot of advertising too which was great, and there’s even two shows on tomorrow night (Saturday) for the Sex And The City themed night of programming.

The last broadcasts of the Late Show on Diva TV will be on Saturday 14th June, Sunday 15th June, Saturday 21st June and Sunday 22nd June (all at 10pm) but there will not be any weekday 9pm airings from next week. After the 22nd June, there is no sign of the Late Show With David Letterman in the Diva TV listings from 23rd June onwards.

The listings on the Diva TV website now go all the way up to the end of July and there’s still no sign of the Late Show With David Letterman, so it must have been axed from the channel for certain.

We urge viewers to contact Diva TV regarding the Late Show to register your complaints. The contact form on their site doesn’t seem to be working, so the only email address I can see on there is feedbackuk@hallmarkchannel.tv or try giving them a call on 020 7368 9100.

Please leave a comment on this post if you get any news from Diva TV. Thank you. We will be promoting the Late Show With David Letterman UK television petition again if the axe does turn out to be correct next week.

One thought on “Late Show With David Letterman axed from Diva TV

  1. Here’s my reply from Diva…

    We have moved Late Show with David Letterman from weeknights, to weekends, as we feel that a lot of the programmes that have been coming through of late from the U.S. have a focus on American guests that our UK audience are not really familiar with, so we have decided as a trial run to broadcast the show at the weekends, but picking the best episodes from the week and therefore choosing the programmes that are more relevant.

    We are broadcasting The Oprah Winfrey Show double episodes as this is proving very popular with our viewers, but we may cut the episodes back to one in a few months time.

    We are in the process of making changes and experimenting with the schedule and whilst we are sorry that Late Show with David Letterman has been moved out of the weekday schedule at this stage we cannot say if this is going to be a permanent move or not.
