Richard & Judy Death Knell

It's been confirmed today that Richard & Judy show will cease in July. From The Bookseller:
Richard and Judy's chatshow on UKTV channel Watch is to end on 3rd July, six months before the end of the original contract, because of poor ratings. But Cactus TV said it was in "advanced talks" with "media partners" about the future of the Book Club, saying it "hopes the Book Club will continue beyond UKTV". This year's Summer Read will continue as normal from 13th May.
Hopefully the Book Club will continue... The Book Club has made several Euro Crime authors much better known eg R J Ellory, Simon Kernick and Andrew Taylor.

They'd be better just doing a program about books !!
