This is a country where only fools and horses is regarded as some sort of national treasure so frankly we get what we deserve with this absolute pish.

I’m also still not entirely sure why Amanda Holden is famous? Like, what did she do to become famous?

She's "famous" for cheating on Les Dennis.

There’s apparently a wrestling thread on P&B.  I have never checked and hope that it’s an urban myth.

this post would suggest you don't rate ''only fools and horses'' ?  could you point me in the direction of something worthy of my time then ?

If we are just discussing general TV shite, I can't believe he is hosting Question of Sport.

I know it has been shite for years with Dawson and Tuffers being insufferable p***ks but they couldn't at least get a sportsperson to do the hosting?

There always was shite on the telly, perhaps there's just more shite.

I can remember Saturday nights being grim in the early 1980s. If you weren't into "family entertainment" shows, and our family weren't, with only 3 channels you ended up watching Chronicle on BBC2 about the ancient Mesopotamians

Channel 4 is still publicly owned. Can I complain about this awful waste of cash?

Channel 4 used to show academic philosophy debates so I guess they've always appealed to the lowest common denominator.

Only fools is Mrs Browns Boys levels of shite.

You’re free to enjoy whatever you like though, no judgements from me.

Leigh Francis' ongoing career is bewildering. I found Bo Selecta mildly amusing when I was 15., everything else he has done has been unfunny on a Godley level. At least he isn't in blackface for this effort.

I dread to think how Bo Selecta holds up today.

I mind thinking celebrity juice was mildly entertaining when I was in high school also. It killed 45 minutes on a Thursday night.

I put it on one night and I just remember thinking why is this classed as funny?
