    ITV Be unveils commissions

    Potato and Monkey Kingdom win series


    ITV was once a quality terrestrial channel, but these days its main channel are filled with soap, Jeremy Kyle and Simon Cowell. That in itself would be bad enough, but ITV scrapped the bottom of the barrel further a few years ago by launching offshoot channel ITV Be.


    On this channel you can find "greats" such as The Only Way Is Essex, The Only Way Is Ibiza, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Melbourne, The Real Housewives of Cheshire etc


    Does anyone watch this channel?

  • No I don't watch that channel, but at least it keeps all that kind of crap in one place where it can be easily avoided.

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • That channel really is the pits, but I just wish other stuff like Jeremy Kyle and some of the realiyt type shows could be dumped there too.


    By the way, I was given a tour of the "main hangouts" in TOWIE recently while on a trip to Brentwood. I wasn't impressed. Basically all the decent old fashioned pubs have now been turned into over precocious and expensive bars because of that show.

  • They just need to rename it ITV BS, I'll let you guess what the BS stands for. ?

  • I wonder if they'll turn the channel into a soft porn one, at some point??


    Most of these shows seem to show scantily clothed people and all they talk about is sex and money.

  • Agree Hoxton. I've never seen it either.

  • Ive never watched TOWIE, the trailers are enough to put me off.

    I watched it once for about 5 minutes to see if the people on it were as shallow as I had been led to believe. Only they were more so.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • It's getting to a point that many of the people who live in my area, especially newcomers, are like that, including one set of neighbours.


    They all have a few traits in common: they drive hugely expensive land rovers, they all have sun tans, the women have heavy makeup and long, fake eyelashes, the men seem to go to the gym every five seconds and when they're not doing that, they're jet washing their cars, none of them have heard of the word goodbye, they all say "laters", they breed a lot..... I could on.:thumbdown:
