I suppose it was inevitable, really. From being the definitive parent-annoying popular music show, TOTP had long since sunk into relative obscurity. Numerous changes of format, including the final indignity of being relegated to Sunday on BBC2 couldn’t really make any difference at all. Now that there are more all-day (and indeed all-night) music channels, a weekly half-hour featuring the increasingly irrelevant singles chart just couldn’t compete.
Like most people, I haven’t really watched it for years anyway.
But it is the end of an era, or something.
