Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) and legendary comedienne Joan Rivers join Graham to dish on the Oscars and cosmetic surgery.
In the "What are you up to tonight- segment, Graham and his guests visit (via remote telecast) with the very brave Elliott as he undergoes having his rather hairy back waxed. Graham eggs him into more, which Elliott finds most painful.
Later in the show, Joan puts her product pitch-person skills (honed on QVC) on display as she 'pitches' odd items such as a Britney Spears hair clipping kit and George W Bush's cowboy boots. Yes, Joan Rivers can sell anything.
Graham Norton returns to the format he's most comfortable with since his Channel 4 days, briefly on BBC2 and now on prime time BBC1. Each week celebrity guest(s) join Graham to discuss what's being going on around the world that week.
The guests poke fun and share their opinions on the main news stories that have happened. Graham is often joined by a band or artist to play the show out with. Throughout series one the show was recorded on the Wednesday at 7pm before it's transmission at 10pm on the Thursday.
