I couldn't mark ITV lower. What used to be an OK at best channel in the 90's/ early 00's has morphed into pure drivel. It takes every program, removes the content, puts some laughing presenter on it, adds a sob story or nine and then churns it out week after week to the smiling idiot masses. Programmes like Splash, X Factor, BGT, even as far as a gardening program, i'm serious, contains nothing but soppy sob stories about that time when someones dog ran away. It's pure shite. I personally feel insulted by it's programmes. It regularly tries to paint these idiots (see Towie) as some form of elite, something that should be aspired to. People complain about the sport but at least it is accurate, real. It seems like a pastiche of our world, dumbed down, irrelevant television. I actually wonder about who pitches these programmes, Plebs for example. It's someone who watched the Inbetweeners and thought, I know what will make this better, copy it's style but put it in Rome. Hopeless. I have many examples, too many to write about. Hopefully ITV will find it's feet again and give quality programmes a chance again, you can make up it hasn't been that long since you broke up.
There is never anything worthwhile to watch, especially Saturday nights when one would expect good viewing! Too many reality shows and not enough all round entertainment and variety shows and good dramas. Thank goodness I have Sky TV
Has also been around for a very long time and will continue to do so
I love talent shows. Why do we have to sit and listen to all the drivel and hype and be spoon fed opinions from talentless know it all judges. I want to listen to the acts they should be heard. So I don't watch any more. Change the format before you kill Simon Cowels Golden Goose. Who do the judges think they are. Do they really think we are stupid enough to believe these judges know what they are talking about. I and others with no musical experience can pick the talent with a lot more creditability than these judges.
Lets have a talent show for judges and see how far these four go.
