The “chat show” is perhaps the most precious to the denizens of the UK, and while there’s more hosts than we can keep up with stateside, Graham Norton stands above the rest. The show bearing his name is an institution across the pond and stateside.
Each hilarious episode, Norton discusses the people, trends, and news that interest him most. The show is rife with sketches, funny stories, celebrity guests, and topped off with musical performances. There’s even madcap audience participation segments. It’s Graham’s party and you’re invited.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch The Graham Norton Show.

- Metacritic score: N/A
What the critics are saying:
- “He [Norton] is so high-octane, even his ears, his eyebrows look animated. When you’ve been doing it so long, maybe the question is not how do you keep such a pitch of enthusiasm, but how do you stop?” –Zoe Williams, The Guardian
- “It’s almost a throwback to Johnny Carson putting multiple people on the same stage and finding the extra magic that comes from sitting back and letting them work off each other.” –Jenny Cohen, USA Today

BBC America is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.
BBC America Streaming Service Guides
Philo is the least expensive streaming service, but it has some limitations. You won’t find the sports channels that dominate other packages or local channels. However, it’s the cheapest way to gain access to 60 great entertainment channels for only $20 a month. You’ll get popular channels like Animal Planet, MTV, Discovery, IFC, AMC, Lifetime, Nick Jr, and the Paramount Network, as well as deep cuts like ID and Game Show Network. You also get free cloud DVR, but shows recorded are deleted after 30 days, so binge responsibly.
For a more à la carte service, look to Sling TV. It offers two cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. If you grab them both (Sling Orange + Blue) you can save $10 per month. Sling Blue offers more bang for your buck with over 40 channels, including sports necessities like FS1, NBCSN, and NFL Network. You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Whichever package you choose, you can save $10 on your first month. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.
Currently, Sling is also run-in a promotion that allows folks who want to dip their toes in the world of online Live TV streaming to try its service during primetime with its Happy Hour Across America promotion. From the hours of 5pm to midnight, Sling will be totally free. For more information, check out the full offer details.
FuboTV was built from the ground up with sports fans in mind. There are different channel packages available whether you’re looking for basketball, soccer, golf, or even outdoor sports like rock climbing. But no worries, all the great cable channels you’re after are here too, including Viceland, Bravo, TBS, and IFC.
There’s a good chance that you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs. The second you sign up, you’ll gain instant access to 45+ channels, including local channels and even free HBO in the Plus and Max channel suites. Plus, it comes with CloudDVR, which lets you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. One account works on two devices, but you can add more devices for only $5.
YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. You can’t beat the variety, either: There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels, while Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.)
BBC America lets you watch their programming online on its website or app (iOS and Android). To use it, however, you will need login information from a cable provider or live streaming service. Philo, PlayStation Vue, FuboTV and YouTube TV logins will work, but unfortunately, Sling TV won’t.
