    Default Ant & Dec overkill

    After all publicity, I tried to watch "Britain's Got Talent" tonight but found that all I seemed to be watching were A&D pulling stupid faces and making no valid contribution to show.

    In one segment (with transvestite) they appeared on screen 11 times from when act commenced , to when they left stage two minutes later.

    During Diversity (a street dancing act) they appeared 7 times in same time segment

    If they are going to be rammed down our throat, why cant it be just start and end of act

    Well, aren't these shows all about the presenters not the guests?

    I would like to have watched acts, uninterupted by inane chatter.

    An anolgy would be to watching a football match and getting Alan Hansen on screen 450+ time! over the course of 90 minutes. I wont't go into the figures for a 7 hour cricket match or 5 day test series.
    Could not resist temptation, for a 5 day cricket test you would see presenter nearly 81 thousand times

    I haven't bought a telly yet and what I read on here does not encourage me to do so. That plus the stuff I watched on the hotel TV while I was relocating.

    British TV used to be the the best in the world. Actually, judging by what I've seen overseas, maybe it still is! even though it's dropped a thousand steps down the ladder since I was last here

    I think the moment of truth was defined for me when I was looking at the BARB tables for the first series of Big Brother on E4 when there were significant numbers of people watching the bedrooms of sleeping housemates at 04:30 in the morning. But then again I believe there is a fan club for the old BBC test cards.

    Having said that I probably will get a TV next week... I'm stupid too!

    Darn this just reminded me that i missed it! Poop!

    Never mind will record it tomorrow.

    As for Ant and Dec i think they make the show. They are funny! And maybe yes they 'pop' in too often during an act, but they are still funny!
    I SWORE ON ONE THREAD!
    GET OVER IT!!!!!
