    Attention Xmas telly: what a fooking joke. anyone else disgusted

    Festive telly this year on the terrestrial channels is the worst ive ever remembered, apart from the bbc who have a half decent lineup theres nothing much worth writing about. anyone else disgusted in the telly this year?
    i got the radio times and looked at the xmas day itv lineup and we have national lampoons xmas vacation which has been seen so many times before, this slot is usually held for a blckbuster. then we have Bean which is years old and again been on so much before.

    the programmes aint that much better we have the normal emmerdale and corra but then nearly 2 hours of dancing on ice? ffs what bollox.

    the bbc on xmas day has saved the day with special NEW episodes or doctor who, royale family and more.

    HD is a great let down too, apart from bbc HD which has a fair amount on, but itv HD is just about non existent over the holidays.

    Ive got sky so it does not matter as much because we have decent films and programmes with as many channels as we want to watch but traditionally we like to watch the normal channels at xmas because in previous years we have had special programmes made for xmas and decent blockbusters that all the family can enjoy.

    ive complained to itv and i got a reply that they will pass it on to the schedulers - i believe it when i see it.

    anyone else pished off with the programming this year. i know theres a credit crunch but anyone would think itv has got the wealth of steptoe and son this year

    your thoughts please?

    XMas day should be crammed full of decent films and xmas comedy instead its polluted with depressing soap stories and reality shite.

    Not really that surprised. TV on the whole of late is shocking.

    I only tend to watch adult cartoons, football and shit.

    Missus watched soaps but I have no interest.

    If I want to watch anything I usually just download it, watch it when I want and delete it...
