Big Brother, easily.

Basically, I hate any form of reality TV, especially 'celebrity' versions. I also hate all these competition-type shows dedicated to singing/dancing. The amount of them seem to steadily grow by the year. All talentless. All a total and utter waste of time. All full of self-centered attention seekers.

BB appears to be the most detested tv show, but no one has yet suggested a better alternative.

Any reality show that features chavs with relationship problems. A prime example being The Jeremy Kyle Show. :roll:

Anyone watching this dross has to be more brain dead than the cretins airing their chav problems on air. :evil:

A close second is Deal Or No Deal.
A show run by cretins for cretins. :mrgreen:

Years ago I watched a couple of Jerry Springer and one Judge Judy show, but ended up wondering how they got such high ratings in the UK. :?:

Tolerance is a set allowance that ensures a good fit and smooth running. Any more tolerance and things get sloppy or don't work at all.

Antiques Road Show
Coronation Street
Home and Away
Cash in the Attic
Songs of Praise
Wife Swap
Any of those Bang Babes type programmes

I just know that I am going to regret this but, what exactly is a Bang Babes programme?

I should refer you to the expert that posted this in the Crumpet thread:

Although Al Bionic (where is he?) professed a keen interest

Anyway it's the sort of grubby smut with grim looking topless participants paid for by idiots that phone in on premium lines that gives smut a bad name.
