Saturday Night TV

I remember a time when Saturday night television was something to stay at home for.  The channels used to fight to get you to watch their evenings entertainment.  These days it would seem that any old crap is put on.

I looked through the schedule and nothing on that inspired me to sit down and watch.  I checked the movies, lots of them, but nothing worth watching, and the ones worth a watch I have already seen many times.

I checked the music channels and the documentary ones too, and alas, rubbish.  History channel showing things that are not history which really takes the biscuit.

Saturday night TV was once an art form, now it is a gaping maw filled with third-rate stars like Cheryl Cole, Ant and Dec, and other monstrosities dragged out, made up and put on in the aid of cheap entertainment.

No wonder I read so much.
