Learndirect are shocked, just shocked, by Jeremy Kyle

Last week The Jeremy Kyle Show was branded as a human form of bear-baiting by District Judge Alan Berg. He is probably quite right. I say “probably”, because I have not actually sat down and watched a full episode of The Jeremy Kyle Show. The man’s demeanour is enough to put you off after just […]

What else were Channel 4 supposed to do?

What I find most strange about this whole Celebrity Big Brother hoo-ha is the idea that Channel 4 should apologise and the fact that the Carphone Warehouse have felt the need to withdraw their sponsorship of Big Brother. So Carphone Warehouse finds the racism broadcast by Channel 4 deplorable. Presumably Carphone Warehouse want to dissociate […]

2006 has gone

Well a happy new year to you, now that we are actually in it. I notice that a few bloggers (like Will) have been posting their top five posts. I can assure you that the five most-viewed posts of the year will not have been my five best posts of the year. They will just […]

Welcome to all my manky new visitors!

Sorry I didn’t post much during the weekend, but I was worried that I was going to run out of bandwidth, so I was doing my own little part to limit the damage. I was probably going to run out of bandwidth for this month anyway, but I waited until the end of the bank […]

Oh dear…

Look at what’s causing a spike of traffic to this blog… And I haven’t even highlighted all of them. Crazy old internet, huh?

Big Brother’s Big Saviour

This year’s Big Brother has been a pile of old bum apparently. A bunch of the original housemates turned out to be possibly too ill. A series of stunts devised by the producers has backfired — the Golden Ticket housemate turning out to be an immense dullard, and the building of a “secret house next […]

Brooker on Galloway

Charlie Brooker: Supposing… Galloway really tried to balls up his career: [Upon eviction, George Galloway was] greeted by what sounded like an explosion in a boo factory… In PR terms, it’s hard to think of anything worse he could’ve done during his stay in the house. But I’ll have a go. He could have 1) […]

Big Brother viewers are the REAL clever ones

I had a bit of a debate yesterday with a friend who is the second person I’ve come across (after Meaders) who thinks that George Galloway taking part in Celebrity Big Brother is actually (snigger) a good idea. My friend was convinced that George Galloway’s appearance on Big Brother was a masterstroke, designed to get […]

Channel 4’s late afternoons

Channel 4 has poached Paul O’Grady, which I think is just all-round odd. Surely the only slot he could fill would be Richard & Judy’s, so what will happen to them? It’s hardly as if Channel 4 have problems filling their tea-time schedule. In recent years, Countdown has been pushed back to mid-afternoon to make […]
