>I really hate Big Brother

>What did we do to deserve the TV show Big Brother?

Given how much time Channel 10 devotes to this noxious, turgid drivel it’s like having one less station to view.

Who wants to watch a bunch of immature, know-nothing, narcissistic ninnies bleat about each other, Australia and the state of the world for 3-4 hours a day?

It might have been mildly interesting in season one due to its novelty value and then held that interest into season two but, seriously, it’s a tired, worn-out wreck of a show that’s an embarrassment for all concerned.

Is there a worse show on TV? I’ve done a quick skim of the TV guide and couldn’t find one although This Is Your Day with the execrable Benny Hinn can’t be far behind. Luckily, that show airs at 3.30AM so we’re mostly all out of harm’s way tucked up in bed.

Apparently, the 2007 Big Brother premiere attracted its lowest opening night audience to date. Let’s hope it goes downhill from there and that this poor excuse for a TV show can get the chop mid-season.
