Bridezillas on Really. It's absolutely dreadful, everyone in it is horrific and it's as compulsive as Jeremy Kyle.  :-[

As someone who spent much of the last six years working on the Kyle show, I have to say I find it far from compulsive viewing.  I therefore won't be watching...

Compulsive in that if you see a bit of it, you want to stay to see how it ends because it's so awful.

So, the lowbrow version of a Lars von Trier movie? :smug:
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Mrs Manotea has taken to watching Made in Chelsea. She says it's 'hypnotic'.

I found the Kyle show amusing for a short while, until I realised the full horror of what was going on. I can't bear to see it now.Getting people with special needs on a stage and winding them up so they are ready to fight, whilst purporting to help them is cynical and amoral beyond belief.

Yeah, missed it here too.

My TV knowledge was hung out to shame yesterday when I confused Jeremy Kyle and Jeremy Vine.

"Isn't it a radio show?"

"No it's daytime TV, what do you do with your spare time?"

Not watch TV ;D

I only became aware of its existence this morning. Sounds worth missing.

It was a bear pit.

I appreciate the some of the stories coming out about the production are filtered for negativity, but they don't really surprise me.

All pretty horrible. Stand offs, goading behind the scenes, manipulating people etc.

I'd always assumed daytime TV like this was for people on industrial pharmaceuticals or those who think the vital and only ingredient in a good breakfast is strong lager. When I watched the US equivalent my consciousness was nestled under a quilt of prescription opioids so strong that I once misjudged the wide entrance to my kitchen by such a wide margin I ended up in the wardrobe. That wasn't so bad, it was the fifteen further minutes I spent trying to find the fridge in there. Honestly, had I found a talking lion in there, I would have just asked who took my oven.

I suppose it's a bread-and-circuses thing, as a sanctimonious middle-classee I feel uncomfortable criticising such things, but it seemed grim from the few clips I've seen rise to the surface, and nothing I've read over the last few days has been endearing. At the end of the show, those are actual people and not TV characters. That someone had to die for the producers and ITV network to look at their feet and mumble a half-hearted apology (while emailing their PR team), well, I think that says something.

IME it's for people in hospital waiting rooms (so you're not far off), desperately hoping that someone will see them before their brain melts.  See also: The Hoobs[1].
