Not the Nine O'Clock News is a television comedy sketch show which was broadcast on BBC2 from 1979 to 1982. Originally shown as a comedy alternative to the Nine O'Clock News on BBC1, it featured satirical sketches on current news stories and popular culture, as well as parody songs, comedy sketches, re-edited videos, and spoof television formats. The show featured Rowan Atkinson, Pamela Stephenson, Mel Smith, and Griff Rhys Jones, as well as Chris Langham in the first series. The format was a deliberate departure from the Monty Python's Flying Circus stream-of-consciousness meta-comedy, returning to a more conventional sketch show format. Sketches were mostly self-contained, lasting from a few seconds to a few minutes and often had a degree of naturalism in performance. The series launched the careers of several high-profile actors and writers, and also led to other comedy series including Blackadder, Mr. Bean, and Alas Smith and Jones.

Six O'Clock Rock was an Australian Rock and Roll television show which showed on ABC from 28 February 1959 to 1962 and was broadcast at 6PM on Saturday evenings. Inspired by the BBC program 6.5 Special, it had a similar format to its rival on the TCN9 network, Bandstand compered by Brian Henderson. This was ABC-TV's very first youth oriented music program, long before the start of Countdown. The show initially opened with American girl Ricki Merriman as compère and Johnny O'Keefe and his band the The Dee Jays as guests. After six shows O'Keefe had taken over the hosting role. The show usually opened with O'Keefe singing "Weeeeeell, come on everybody its 6 o'clock huh huh huh". The first episode also featured Reg Lindsay, The Australian All-Stars, The Graduates, Terry King and Johnny Ball. The dancers in the opening title sequence were Lee Nielson and Milton Mitchell. Many entertainers got their first big exposure on 6 O'Clock Rock and these included Lonnie Lee, Barry Stanton and Warren Williams. The show was produced by Peter Page. The show originally contained a mixture of Rock and Roll and Jazz, but O'Keefe wanted the show to be all Rock and Roll, so the Jazz content dwindled for a time.
The Six O'Clock Show was a regional television magazine show broadcast in the Greater London area and produced by London Weekend Television between 1982 and 1988. The Friday evening programme was launched on Friday 8 January 1982 and presented in front of a live studio audience by Michael Aspel with co-hosts Danny Baker, Andy Price and Janet Street-Porter. Later presenters included Paula Yates, Shyama Perera, former Page 3 model Samantha Fox and Mastermind champion Fred Housego. Devised by Greg Dyke and intended as a light-hearted introduction to the weekend, the programme included a 15 minute news bulletin produced by Thames Television alongside current affairs, features and entertainment. There was also a short-lived Saturday edition of the programme, which ran for six weeks during May and June 1985. The Six O'Clock Show went onto become one of the most watched regional TV programmes in Britain. Concern from the Independent Broadcasting Authority about the lack of a proper local news service at weekends forced LWT to introduce its own service of LWT News bulletins throughout the weekend in 1988. The Six O'Clock Show was axed around the same time and replaced by a smaller scale magazine show entitled Friday Now. This in turn was replaced a year later by Six O'Clock Live, presented by Frank Bough with reporters Danny Baker, Jo Sheldon and Nick Owen.
