A little birdie has told me that after receiving a lot of flak (for a couple of years at least) for the mindless antics, physical as well as linguistic, on morning shows on almost all of the major TV channels, their decision-makers have decided to provide the anchors with a proper script to minimise the chances of goof-ups.

This is a healthy sign. If the anchors follow even half of what’s in the script, depending on who has written it, they will make far less mistakes and might not wreak havoc on the Urdu language the way they are accustomed to doing. Hopefully, the script writers will also introduce some meaningful topics into the shows, and not just the song and dance sequences at marriage ceremonies.
