What did people say about the new ITV chat show hosted by David Walliams?

Not good.

*The Daily Telegraph said it "fell as flat as a Shrove Tuesday pancake... The Nightly Show needs to improve fast if ITV are to avoid expensive dental bills - not to mention egg on their faces."

*Mark Lawson in the Guardian wrote: "If the first night proves representative, the show may struggle to equal, on any of its five nights, the level of star power that Graham Norton manages on his one. It will need to answer firmly the question: why this at that time?"

*Comedy review website Chortle wrote: "Walliams joked that confused viewers might think ‘the News At Ten’s gone a bit down-market’. Downmarket’s not the issue, bland is. The Nightly Show does not feel like the mustn’t-miss proposal that ITV need it to be. The gamble hasn’t paid off."
