YES or NO: Belated Summer of Shitty TV Edition

I was going to do this after each episode, but on second thoughts, I might shift this back to Fridays. It doesn’t seem right on Tuesdays…

One show I took off the list was Australia’s Brainiest Radio Star [7.30pm Thu, 10], as the response would’ve been fairly predictable (“NO: it contains Jo Stanley!”). The only thing I wanna say about this repeat is that the winner was a radio star when the show was taped, but was boned by the time it aired!

Simply copy the following, paste it into the comment box, and edit where necessary – even explain why you made your choice if you like! Dunno what the show’s about? That’s what the links are for!

1) The King Of Queens [7pm Weekdays, 9] – YES or NO
2) Weeds [9pm Tue, 9] – YES or NO
3) Life As We Know It [10.30pm Tue, 7] – YES or NO
4) Australian Princess [7.30pm Wed, 10] – YES or NO
5) Da Kath & Kim Code [repeat; 8.30pm Wed, ABC] – YES or NO
6) The Loop [8pm Thu, 7] – YES or NO
7) 2006 AFI Awards [9.30pm Thu, 9] – YES or NO
8) Movie: Blast From The Past [9pm Fri, 9] – YES or NO
9) How The Hell Did We Get Here? [7.30pm Sat, ABC] – YES or NO
10) Movie: Flashdance [9.30pm Sat, 7] – YES or NO
Bonus Question: Who should replace Naomi Robson as host of Today Tonight in 2007?

  2. 1) The King Of Queens [7pm Weekdays, 9] – NO. Not only is it crap its pointless too.
    2) Weeds [9pm Tue, 9] – YES Been hearing things about this. I wonder how much nine are going to cut out of it.
    3) Life As We Know It [10.30pm Tue, 7] – NO. He’s dead Jim. His brain is gone.
    4) Australian Princess [7.30pm Wed, 10] – NO. If I wanted to see a bunch of no brained twits thinking themselves as princesses, I will go to Northland.
    5) Da Kath & Kim Code [repeat; 8.30pm Wed, ABC] – NO. Saw it the first time, didn’t think much of it then either.
    6) The Loop [8pm Thu, 7] – YES. Don’t know this one, might have to give it a watch.
    7) 2006 AFI Awards [9.30pm Thu, 9] – YES. I wonder if it will be as action packed was the Walklies 🙂
    8) Movie: Blast From The Past [9pm Fri, 9] – NO. Get back to the past.
    9) How The Hell Did We Get Here? [7.30pm Sat, ABC] – NO. I don’t know how we got here. But I think we should leave… NOW!
    10) Movie: Flashdance [9.30pm Sat, 7] – NO. I prefer the beer commercial.

    1) The King Of Queens – NO: Jerry Stiller’s alright, but the rest is cliched man-versus-woman sludge.
    2) Weeds – YES: seems to be well-received.
    3) Life As We Know It – MAYBE.
    4) Australian Princess – NO: but Ten made the right move, moving this to non-ratings.
    5) Da Kath & Kim Code – NO: what’re you doing, ABC? That’s valuable DVD sales you’re squandering!
    6) The Loop – YES: fairly funny, from what I’ve seen.
    7) 2006 AFI Awards – YES: and let’s hope that more than one film scoops the pool (though that probably won’t happen – it’ll either be Kenny or Jindabyne).
    8) Movie: Blast From The Past – YES: it’s predictable, “duck”-out-of-water stuff; but it’s funny.
    9) How The Hell Did We Get Here? – NO: it seems like it’ll be more “Good as Gold” than “20 to 1”. And whatever you do, don’t ask Frank Woodley that question!
    10) Movie: Flashdance – YES: I haven’t seen this. I’d at least like to see that “what a feeling” bit to compare with that Carlton ad.
    Who should replace Naomi Robson? Humourous answer: Mike Moore or Wa Wa. Serious answer: Definitely someone male. Maybe Grant Denyer.

  4. 1) The King Of Queens [7pm Weekdays, 9] – NO, I got bored of it when it was on before.
    2) Weeds [9pm Tue, 9] – YES- But I think Crap TV will come on a fair bit for this, it seems to just drop out at the end of the “Pilot”, maybe it just had enough ads. I expect Channel 9 to shove it at midnight and cancel it a week later soon (because I watch it)
    3) Life As We Know It [10.30pm Tue, 7] – Dunno.
    4) Australian Princess [7.30pm Wed, 10] – NO, anything that was promoted by Jackie O will make me not watch it. Too much promotion for this too
    5) Da Kath & Kim Code [repeat; 8.30pm Wed, ABC] – NO, I cringed thorugh it the last time, not again
    6) The Loop [8pm Thu, 7] – YES, I’ll check it out.
    7) 2006 AFI Awards [9.30pm Thu, 9] – NO, no funny host, no awards show for me!
    8) Movie: Blast From The Past [9pm Fri, 9] – NO, the write up said Romantic Comedy, which has turned me off!
    9) How The Hell Did We Get Here? [7.30pm Sat, ABC] – NO, I’ve run out of patience for “repeats”.
    10) Movie: Flashdance [9.30pm Sat, 7] – NO, th

    Bonus Question: Who should replace Naomi Robson as host of Today Tonight in 2007? “She who cannot be named”. It would just kill the ratings so much better than Robson, and I can just see “Illegal Immigrant Peadophiles prey on you children with dogey builders making dogey toilets at your school, hee hee hee hee hee hee hee”. Seriously, they should just cancel Today Tonight.

  5. 1) The King Of Queens [7pm Weekdays, 9] – YES or NO – No. I dread it every year. Makes me hate summer (which is hard). Even the ads make me want to smash the television.

    2) Weeds [9pm Tue, 9] – YES or NO – No. Unedited would be good Channel 9 idiots.

    3) Life As We Know It [10.30pm Tue, 7] – YES or NO – Unsure as to what this is…

    4) Australian Princess [7.30pm Wed, 10] – YES or NO – No. Sign of a top quality show, a local production aimed at Summer.

    5) Da Kath & Kim Code [repeat; 8.30pm Wed, ABC] – YES or NO – No. It was unfunny and dated enough last year.

    6) The Loop [8pm Thu, 7] – YES or NO – God no. I’ve seen a little and HATED.

    7) 2006 AFI Awards [9.30pm Thu, 9] – YES or NO – No. Self congratulatory crap with absolutely nothing to celebrate. What, hooray “Kenny”? Don’t get me started.

    8) Movie: Blast From The Past [9pm Fri, 9] – YES or NO – Mildly innofensive enough once.

    9) How The Hell Did We Get Here? [7.30pm Sat, ABC] – YES or NO – Or How The Hell Did We Get This? No Chance. To quote Shane Bourne: “There are a lot of these 20 to 1 shows, but this is markedly different because the ABC has trawled through their archives and found some gems”. Yes, markedly different. Idiot.

    10) Movie: Flashdance [9.30pm Sat, 7] – YES or NO – No.

    Bonus Question: Who should replace Naomi Robson as host of Today Tonight in 2007? They should bone the whole show. But my prediction on who will (not should) is Anna Corrin.
