Not content with filling our screen with vacuous airheads in such shows as The Only Way Is Essex, Made in Chelsea and Desperate Scousewives, we’re apparently about to be bombarded with yet another one called Best of Cambridge.
Which will no doubt be all about the antics of students throwing themselves about while out on the lash and getting drunk.
It’s not just these types of show that have become the norm on our reality obsessed TV screens.
We’re still subjected to the dross that is Big Brother, even though we’ve been promised for the last million years that ‘this year is THE LAST EVER one, honest!’
Um, hiding it on Channel 5 and replacing it with Brian Dowling isn’t getting rid of it, it’s just effectively putting it out to pasture yourselves. Do yourselves a favour and get rid altogether.
Even the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ this year shows the inane obsession with reality shows this nation currently has. Apart from the odd exception to the rule such as film actor Michael Madsen, and a couple of others, this year’s bunch of non celebrities mainly comprise members of Joe Public who have been kicked off other ‘talent show’ programmes.
(Yes, such as you, Frankie Cocozza.)
Since when did getting booted off another reality show make you a celebrity? The word used to mean something at one point.
Now it seems anyone who has ever graced the small screen is allowed to call themselves a celebrity.
Get ready for a barrage of new ‘celebrities’ flooding our screens. That little old lady who was crossing the road in the background of the report in News at Ten? Yep, her and her handbag are now famous.
That’s how ludicrous it is all becoming.
Let’s can all this cheap entertainment where TV crews are desperately trawling cities for new fame hungry desperados/weirdos and bring back some PROPER telly.
You know, the kind of TV that actually has proper, talented people at the helm of the shows, in funny roles. Back when being a celebrity actually MEANT something.
Not where you can be ‘famous’ and a role model for making a prize tit of yourself on national TV.
