Allen's Tv Show Flops
LATEST: Pop star Lily Allen's new TV show has disappointed programme-makers by failing to attract a large enough audience when it aired on Tuesday (12Feb08) night. The singer has taken a break from music to record Lily And Friends - a chat show featuring celebrity guests and live music - to be shown on British digital channel BBC3. But according to official figures the show's debut episode only attracted 255,000 viewers - just two per cent of the potential audience. A BBC spokesman called it a "solid start" but the news has fuelled speculation the programme will not be commissioned for a second series. It had been previously reported that members of the studio audience were so disappointed with Allen's performance they got up and left before the cameras finished rolling. But the 22-year-old hitmaker denied people were "bored of the content" insisting audience members only walked out because recording went on for longer than expected.
