Cringe TV Axed

Channel 4 is axing next year's series of Celebrity Big Brother.

Hope this means Ch4 will get back to making award winning programs again.

Funnily enough, CBB is the only reality show I've ever liked. Galloway's cat will go down in TV history, it set new standards for cringe worthiness that have yet to be matched.

I thought the Goody/Shetty incident was all a bit of a storm in a teacup and didn't warrant the publicity it got. In fact, this year's was pretty rubbish thinking about it.

Should be back in 2009, though.

I must admit I enjoyed the one with Les Dennis having a mental breakdown. I know it's wrong but what can you do?

Unfortunately the demise of any of the Big Brother genre will not result in an improvement in the output of Channel 4. More likely it will plumb the depths of sewer television even deeper.

Theres always good news on a Friday, thank goodness for that, any word of them axing the normal BB as thats as bad?

I never watch it, so it's neither good nor bad news to me...:-)
