She seemed to inject some energy into the show, and she's a brilliant presenter.
David Walliams, John Bishop and Davina McCall have all fronted the programme but have been subject to criticism from some viewers. The Nightly Show took another blow when Mel and Sue decided they would not be hosting, blaming busy schedules for their decision.
Arrogant Piers, 51, was discussing the new live ITV series, which was billed as the United Kingdom version of the late night chat shows popular in America and hosted by the likes of Jimmy Fallon and James Corden.
He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I think we have to give it a few weeks".
And ratings have dwindled since it began - dropping below a million viewers last week. And now the controversial TV presenter has declared that he is the man to SAVE The Nightly Show. "They're trying to be a bit American for me".
Mark Labbett (The Beast) took to Twitter to ask ITV if he could present the show with his fellow chasers. "I have watched a few of them and some seem to work better than others". I want to see who works. "But I'd be brilliant", he added, modestly. "And I can't do morning and night", he said.
The Nightly Show was pulling in more than two million viewers at its peak but now is in danger of the axe if things don't improve.
Reports have surfaced to suggest that Paul O'Grady was approached to host the show for one week during its eight-week run on ITV, but he said "thanks, but no thanks".
From Monday evening, Dermot O'Leary will be taking over the show, and it could potentially go well - it could be a turning point for The Nightly Show.
