Every week day, I let you know what’s happening in the world of television from around the world
I may have been wrong about Heist, but I did say NBC’s version of Teachers was a bit rubbish (although I didn’t rubbish it as badly as The San Francisco Chronicle did: “a leech on your soul”). The ratings are in and it’s likely to be dropped after only two episodes.
Heist, which I said not too long ago wasn’t “half bad”, has just been cancelled after only four episodes. It was up against Lost, though, so no real surprise there. Plus the latest couple of episodes weren’t very good. Oh well.
However, this time, instead of ‘journalist’ as my profession, I’ve put down ‘writer’. Maybe that’ll go down better. It works for all those Guardian journalists when they do those Channel 4 list shows.
Then again, I’ve been honest and listed the shows that I’ve been to see recorded: Absolutely, Time Gentlemen Please and Two Pints of Lager. Do they sound like Gordon’s kind of shows? Think they might reckon I’m too lowbrow or have no pallet? It’s not like I ever order lager and crisps…
I actually left out my losing appearance on Either/Or (in which I was eventually insulted by an opera singer), but technically I wasn’t watching it being recorded, I was being recorded. Do you think that makes a difference?
PS Incidentally, according to the mail out I got sent “Vegetarians need not apply” for F Word tickets…
I love animals. But does love have a price? Would you spend $150,000 on vet bills for your Boston terrier, like Rose McGowan off Charmed?
That’s one seriously poorly dog. Either that, or they’re using gold stitches and Evian water for all the operations.
