LJD'S WEEKLY CATCH UP: Fucking Reality Tv shows are drowning decent Australian TV

We've just finished Masterchef on channel ten and now they've started the Bachelor AND they have The Great Australian Spelling Bee for kids coming up in a week or two, plus the U.S. Think You Can Dance and American Idol on their sister channel 11 along with Bachelorette.

And all that was after I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Recipe to Riches and Shark Tank.

Channel seven has Restaurant Revolution AND Dancing With The Stars which both started straight after House Rules finished.

Channel nine has Hot Plate, Britain's Got Talent, The Voice AU, Lip Sync Battle, and god knows what else and they came after Married at First Sight, Reno Rumble, The Block and two Survivors.

All we've had all year, is when one show ends another starts, show after show after fricken' show.

We are drowning in reality shit and that means good tv shows get kicked to the fucking curb for bullshit garbage people are over. American shows are kicked to the curb and since the networks spend all their cash on reality shit, there's nothing left for decent home made drama or comedy.

Channel ten were crapped on this week for dragging out the Masterchef finale and constantly playing ads for other reality shows in the breaks.

Channel seven copped the same social media backlash two weeks before when they had the final of House Rules. 

The networks are out for viewers and ratings, yet sadly, the way they treat the public is turning the public off and will result in less viewers and less ratings.

Either way, I've had a fucken' gutful.

LJD'S WEEKLY CATCH UP: The rejects and retards of Australia’s Celebrity Apprentice 2015


How bloody pathetic channel nine!

You really scraped the bottom of the barrel with this one, didn’t you?

The second ‘The Bachelor’ Blake Garvey, Popstars reject and movie wanna-be now apparently a dj Sophie Monk, Big Brother winner from two years ago Tim Dormer, Fucking Geoffrey Edelstein and dumb bitch import wife Gabby who keeps leaving him, guilt ridden radio host Mel Greig who really needs to get over the whole “royal phone call nurse killing herself” prank, Real Housewife of Melbourne and now Neighbours soapie actor Gina Liano, TV has-been and current internet and phone provider actress Esther Anderson, Miss Universe Australia who no one knows Tegan Martin, NRL footy player Matt Cooper, TV presenter and one time Australian Idol host James Mathison and Hollywood Gossip Guru Richard Reid.

Seriously!!!!!

All washed up has-beens or wanna-bes except for James who still turns up on TV. Gina is clearly getting her promotional skills on as a prosecutor by day and Melbourne Housewife by night, she’s released a traditionally published book and is now guest starring on a soapie, well played Ms Liano, well played.

Tim Dormer got a one year contract out of channel nine as winner of Big Brother 2013, but has disappeared since. Sophie Monk was in Bardot, the first winners of Popstars way back about 15 years ago. She moved to L.A. and got bit parts in movie, has co-hosted radio shows when the regular hosts are on holiday and once dated, and was engaged to, Benji Madden.

Blake Garvey seems to be continuing his Bachelor bullshit after two years and simply needs to go away, no one knows Tegan or Matt, at least not non rugby people, and Richard Reid was the channel nine gossip guru for about six years until channel nine didn’t renew his contract at the end of 2014, so why he’s suddenly back I don’t know because channel ten actually snapped him up as their gossip guru. Inter channel conflicts going on there.

Mel Greig, I used to like and feel sorry for her but sadly, she’s carrying on the self-imposed guilt trip for way too long. You didn’t fucking do anything except make a stupid prank phone call, that bitch nurse was already depressed and had already tried to commit suicide, apparently she left a note saying the radio hosts were to blame yet no one ever saw it so I think it’s bullshit. Any expert will tell you no one is to blame for someone’s suicide except them. Personally, women need to stop the guilt trips because they’re the only ones imposing them, no one else did. Second, it was two fucking years ago, get the fuck over it and stop talking about it.

Geoffrey and Gabby, imported American wife number 2! These two are such emotionally immature, insecure attention seeking whores it’s ridiculous. They break up every week then get back together. It’s pathetic, piss weak and fucked up because there is something seriously wrong with these two.


Channel nine, again, you have really scraped the bottom of the barrel with this one and I will certainly NOT be watching. Besides, you ditched Big Brother for this bullshit, not that that's any better!

LJD'S WEEKLY CATCH UP: It's time to bring back the good old light-hearted tv crime shows the whole family can watch!



We've been getting Diagnosis Murder on tv of late, and it reminded me of the good old days of crime tv when there was no gore factor in these shows as they were made for tv viewing at 7:30. 

You never saw people really being shot, beheaded, run over, killed etc, what you did get was a good story, a decent mystery, an hour of decent entertainment and an awesome theme tune you remember thirty years later.

Whether it was Murder, She Wrote, Magnum P.I., MacGyver, Diagnosis Murder, The A-Team, Knight Rider, CHIPS, Hart To Hart, Hardcastle and McCormack, Moonlighting, Remington Steele (hot as chocolate Pierce Brosnan), oh my god, Riptide (spunky Perry King) and Simon & Simon (Jameson Parker reminds me of Shaun Cassidy), these shows were so damn good and so good to watch, as much as they may be corny now, at least the whole family could watch them, unlike now, the blood and guts and gore is too much for me, even Law and Order SVU has had me crossing my legs and cringing as a woman.

I think it's time shows like these were bought back, and not in hard core movie form, but new shows, that are light-hearted and good to watch without bringing in hard core violence and hatred. But I guess without Aaron Spelling and Stephen J Cannel, it seems there's no one big enough or good enough in Hollywood tv these days who has the guts to bring them back. Not even Castle is light-hearted enough for 7:30.

BRING BACK THE GOOD OLD CRIME SHOWS!!!
