    I hate xfactor with a passion, its utter gargage just like the voice, bgt, dancing on ice, strictly dancing and ALL cookery programs, and now these crap tv programs are the cause of decent programes being cut!

    I can't understand why the olympics would affect TG either, its only on for a few weeks, and a lot of people have access to Sky+ & VM+, surely TG could have been scheduled around the olympics

    Why cant they publish Top Gear programs on-line so we can watch it there when it takes a low priority to national events

    TV isnt the only medium for broadcast entertainment

    Amen to that. It wouldnt be so bad if there was only one of these "Talent" shows but its the amount of them that bugs the heck outta me. Dont have an issue with the cookery programmes though, Huge Fernly Whats His Name's, River Cottage series was a brilliant piece of TV imo.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Year : 2010

    Love Xfactor, love BGT, love The Voice am totally hooked on programs like that and watch them religiously. However I'm not in the slightest bit interested in the Olympics and as far as I'm concerned it's just a HUGE waste of time and money in a time when we as a country shouldn't be spending so much and a damned inconvenience

    (and yes I'm aware of the argument that it will bring millions into the country, but yet to be convinced they'll off set each other and honestly don't actually care)

    Dump the Olympics and bring back Top Gear

    Because they can't afford to do both. It will cost the BBC a fortune in presenters to host the Olympics, as well as putting them up in 5* hotels and all the taxi fees.

    Personally I couldn't give two hoots about the Olympics. I shan't be watching it.

    Another thing that is annoying is that duruing the summer I take the occasional weekend trip to Weymouth. However due to the stupid Olympics I won't be able to do that this year because of all the parking restrictions in weymouth.
