Jason Manford thinks that ITV's The Nightly Show deserves a second series, albeit with some changes.

The comic hosted the penultimate week of the eight-week long series, which aired at 10PM, Monday-Fridays in place of the usual News At Ten.

Reaction to the show has been mixed and ratings a bit all over the place, with an average of 1.2 million watching this week's final five shows with host Dermot O'Leary.

Writing on his Facebook page about the show, Jason said: "Obviously for some people it was never gonna recover once it replaced the News at Ten but I think a lot of people have seen that it's good to try new things.

"Hopefully ITV will learn from it and maybe create something off the back of it-it's always good to try new things."

He added: "It's also not perfect and I'd love another go on it someday but I've enjoyed myself a lot and I hope you have to. "

Jason had watched countless episodes of The Late, Late Show with James Corden, The Graham Norton Show and Tonight with Jimmy Fallon ahead of his stint as guest host in a bid to improve the show.

However he suggested more fundamental changes were required to the format, saying that the current 30-minute time slot needed to be extended or see fewer guests.

As yet ITV have not confirmed a second series of The Nightly Show although rumours are it may come back but in a later 10:30PM slot.
