ITV has turned a 300 million loss into 400 million profit, which is to be applauded, as ITV continually making losses like this would result in the broadcaster being broken up and taken over by...

Moving on from Big Brother, I really think Channel 5 should develop a popular entertainment strand that isn't a reality show. There was talk of a Top of the Pops typr show being created, I think this...

You've never watched Channel 4, More 4 is CDWM and property shows on a loop, E4 is mostly imports and Channel 4 is stale beyond belief, again relying on CDWM to get it through Saturday after the...

Desmond is the owner of the Daily Star, which is Big Brother's main cheerleader in Britain, and obviously buying in BB was a logical move for him when Channel 4 cancelled it. Wonder if Des had never...

Fincham has tried his best, but ITV seems to be overdependent on two soaps that are past their best now, a morning schedule that hasn't changed for 10 years, revivals of game shows with zelebs in and...

Could the end be nigh for Big Brother? It is a pricey show to buy from Endemol and seems to be tired. Since Channel 5 likes its imnported shows that repeat well, Big Brother doesn't fall into this...

Peter Clayton, host of Sounds of Jazz, a distinctly Radio 2 show in the early eighties that ended up on Radio 1 for two years as he couldn't be slotted into Radio 2 at the time.

To be fair to Peter Fincham and Adam Crozier, they inherited a broadcaster whose reputation was as bad as British Leyland's at the end of the seventies. Fincham has at least tried to vary the main...

That Mafia series sounds good and has a good host. It's a shame ITV doesn't beef up its factual content as when they do factual well, they are very good. It's just a shame that the diamonds are quite...

ITV 4 is good, offering a mixture of sports, action films and re runs of The Professionals, but ITV 3 is just the same tired out repeats, ITV 2 is tacky and overdependent on spin offs from Cowell...

I think the Top 40 was his only gig in 1979/80, and then he hosted Junior Choice, a show he later admitted to disliking intensely, until September 1984. Indeed when he left Radio 1, he became a vocal...

ITV are in a rut. For all Fincham is an improvement on his predecessors, the station is overdependent on a few hit shows, all of which are getting on now, and has little else that rates. They seem...

I think the summer of 2011, when there were flops like Popstar to Operastar and The Marriage Ref, and the infamous Red or Black, has made ITV very wary of commissioning peak time LE in summer. They...

BB does have the sentimental vote. Ok I'd rather watch grass grow, but it did spawn a new genre of television, has outlived all its contemporaries except the jungle, and has a cult following. I'd...
