Re: Saturday evening telly .. do we really need another talent s
It's cheap TV, it's the 'variety' of its day (but cheaper than booking established act, no matter how good/poor), and it's cheap. Did I mention how cheap this kind of TV is?
It's a rare day if I actually sit down to view any TV as it's broadcast. I grab the occasional prog/series from the iPlayer over night and watch them as and when.
Although you may rest assured none of it is the cheap 'new variety' shows. Recently watched include; The Singing Detective back-to-back over two nights, Dirk Gently over one, and waiting for White Heat to finish in the schedules/download to watch all together.
