According to David Stevenson, Channel Four's Controller of Entertainment and Youth Programmes, the show's title was inspired by Madonna's 1993 Girlie Show world tour: "I nicked the idea for the title off Madonna. She was doing a tour called that at the time." See more »
These were the days of "Girl power", this show was presented by a load of yep, you've guessed it, girlies! The girlie show was hosted by Claire gorham, Sara cox, Rachel williams, and Sarah cawood.
Broadcast late at night, they had the authority to dig up the dirt on just about anyone and everyone, from TV celebs to singers and anything else you can think of.
The show had special guest appearances. Funnily enough the title of the show also sounds familiar to another show at the time, yes thats right - the Sunday show, which if you like was the cleaner version of this.
TGS was infamous for its celebrity mocking, when the time came the presenters would all chant out "and now its time for the W***** of the week!" Ahhh, happy days...
