Monkey!

Jonnie Vegas and the OnDigital monkey No not the Buddhist one with his pals Pigsy and the sea monster. The OnDigital monkey! He’s coming back as the new face of PG Tips! Woo hoo. Johnny Vegas will, of course, be joining him.

PS My wife and her friends are very worried about Johnny Vegas. They suspect he’s going to be aphonic in a few years’ time if he doesn’t get treatment. Anyone fancy starting an online petition with me?

Invasion is out of The Loop

The cast of The LoopI’ve been getting a bit worried of late. I slated Invasion when it launched, but it made it to a whole season. I praised The Loop, but that ended after only seven episodes. Heist got dropped after five. Has my ability to spot dross and quality been compromised after watching CSI: Miami for so long?

Today has brought all kinds of ego-restoring confirmation. Invasion has now been cancelled by ABC, although there’s a possibility that new network The CW (a merger of sorts between UPN and The WB) will pick it up. The Loop is also back for a second season of 13 episodes, which is double its first season episode count. Happy happy joy joy! I was right. Kind of.

Heist, however, is still screwed, but I was never that keen on it anyway. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.

UPDATE: Teachers, which I also panned, is getting the chop, as is Surface, probably. I’m clearly on a roll.
