We have been bombarded with low quality programming for many years now and recently we have had The only way is Essex and Made in Chelsea thrusted upon us. Both 'programmes' (misuse of the words I would say) are of very low quality and the common denominator between them is that those who appear don't look very real, plus they tend to be very white Anglo Saxon blond with blue eyes, very Midsummer murder types. So as you can imagine its all very real... ??
Anyway saying that freedom of expression and the right to serve anything you like on telly means that there isn't much we can do about the exhibiting of these programmes the best way to deal with them would be to create alternatives? So how about the Only way is Streatham? Or Made in Clapham Common?? Worth a try? lol
