A lot of the TV execs and journalists I spoke to at the end of Edinburgh TV festival seemed a little frustrated or disappointed about the lack of big stories and themes to emerge this year up in Scotland.
Most channel controllers played it safe with a few new programme announcements. The BBC spoke of their version of Roald Dahl's Esio Trot with Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench, Channel 4 talked of a new Danny Boyle Police drama and ITV were happy to discuss the new series of Downton and how sitcom's Vicious and The Job Lot were coming back.
But from what I can gather there could be more interesting announcements to come in the next few weeks ahead.
Kylie Minogue is now a serious contender to be a new judge on The Voice. Whilst Jesse J was sassy, she was not warm and lets just say some people who worked on the show were not shedding any tears when they heard she was leaving.
Compare that with queen of pop Kylie, loved by huge chunks of the UK and someone I am told is very easy going and low maintenance when she has appeared on other TV shows, and you have a really good addition to the BBC show.
Getting Kylie alongside Will.I.Am and Tom Jones, would give them a real chance to throw the dice with the fourth judge and perhaps try a young up-and-coming female star who would be unpredictable in terms of TV experience but capable of attracting younger viewers.
For the moment the BBC says any judges names are "speculation" but I know they are hoping they can get lucky, lucky, lucky with Kylie.
And over at ITV, boss Peter Fincham is desperate to get Simon Cowell to come back to The X Factor next year.
During his controller session in Edinburgh, he said: "We are delighted Simon is on BGT and Simon does X Factor in America. We understand and are completely realistic about it. "If he did come back that would be great but it is an enormous brand."
What he didn't say, but I have mentioned here on RadioTimes.com before, is that Cowell's US career is uncertain after this year. And Peter knows if the US show is canned he might be able to lure Cowell back for 2014 as they are currently negotiating a new deal.
I grabbed Peter after his session and he said: "The contract talks are going well, they have slowed down because everyone has been on holiday but we have a great relationship with Simon and I'm sure it will get signed."
There was a twinkle in his eye when I mentioned the prospect of the US X Factor finishing, and Peter also said: "We would love him on X Factor but we have to see what happens. I wish him well in America."
