Oh dear. Poor Ant n Dec have had to give their Comedy Award back. This is because ITV was desperate to have Robbie Williams at its Comedy Awards ceremony, but he would only present an award if his mates had won. This is despite the fact that Catherine Tate had actually won the award based on readers' votes. Is she bovvered though?
This is a fine example of somebody making an executive decision without actually thinking of the consequences.
I'm sure ITV is bovvered because it has had to pay whopping multi-million pound fines to charity and its viewers due to the scam around premium rate phone lines. ITV is the latest in a long line of broadcasters that have been slapped on the wrists for ripping viewers off with these phone lines.
The question is - who keeps voting for all this rubbish in the first place and paying the astronomical phone bills as a result? I do admit to voting on the first ever shows that introduced this type of viewer interaction a few years ago, but have soon become extremely bored with the whole reality TV concept. It makes me switch off straight away.
More people should do the same and we might actually start getting decent TV programmes back on air.
