A small rant. I'm going to try and avoid these if I can as anger gives you cancer apparently.
I'd given up on TV a while back before the likes of Dr Who, Ugly Betty and Heroes had restored my faith slightly. The one I really engaged with (in the first few weeks anyway) was the now consigned to history Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. Smart, sharp, deliciously well played and created by Aaron Sorkin of The West Wing, it started restoring my faith in TV.
TV3 originally ran it on Thursdays and then, for some unfathomable reason, swapped to Mondays.
It was postponed a few weeks ago for the TV Now Inanity Awards or whatever.
Slightly larger grrr.
Then, this Monday just gone, it disappeared again. Why? For the first episode of the new Simon Cowell "let's throw the poor disillusioned feckers who think they have variety show talent to the lions"-fest Britain's Got Talent.
Lads for the love of all that's holy stop fecking this poor series around! It's already been cancelled by the network in the U.S. after just one series so let's give it a bit of respect on the way to the crematorium of lost gems. Please.
