Most of the inkies had an independent chart at this time, but Record Mirror was unique because it was the only paper (other than Music Week) to have the official BBC charts as used by TOTP and the...

10 shows in 1980 featured Savile & DLT (including the Christmas Show), but the key thing which will skew the schedules will be the industrial action which meant 9 shows were cancelled in June &...

The general blatant manipulation of the whole programme, which coincided with a year in which the producers/Cowell totally misjudged the mood of the public - they thought we'd love Katie, Cher & 1...

He said "Tiger, tiger, burning bright", the same thing the cowled figure (who we assume is Red John) said to Jane at the end of the season 2 finale, so the killer must be one of RJ's accomplices...

I think that even though she started out being a mouthy cow, Joanna ended up being how most of us might hope to perform on The Apprentice - a hard-working, common-sense type who gets things done,...

I don't think it's impossible to conceive that LS was constantly being told by the producers to keep Stuart in for "good TV" reasons, even though he was a total BS-er, so when the time came for...

If this is true, I think it would be a genius choice, he's an actual legend, genuinely liked & likeable, very articulate when he wants to be... I'm impressed.

I love "The Sing Off", it's so good natured, the contestants so genuinely talented, and even the judges are great, especially Ben Folds, who's funny, but really knows his music, too.

Totally agree - in fact, I only got into Cheers once Diane left, and I even think the Sam character got better once she was gone... Cheers is one of the few sitcoms which was strong right until the...

^ This ^

They went from "You're Hired" to the end credits in about 45 seconds, and Clint was never seen again, not even the lonely-taxi-ride/talk-to-camera, which was very unfair for a good...

Well, that may be so, but that's not how the programme presents itself. It's very much presented as "the public's show", but the results demonstrate that it's mostly the judges opinions/agendas which...

To be fair, this is just like real life - good solid workers who actually get on with the job, being passed over in favour of mouthy, over-confident idiots with zero people-skills.

Excellent low-key show, I'm really pleased it's gotten a 2nd season. Andre Braugher is a seriously great (and underused!) actor, and the chemistry between the three leads is very believeable. I can't...
