There are no balls on any of these shows! All we get these days are how to do up property or relationship type shows on TV.

No, but we've had more than our fair share of those over on BBC2 for the past fortnight Wink

However, a glance at today's schedules proves the point - all day the lady of the house is fully catered for (if she were at home, that is), including two slabs of Midsomer Murders, the usual helping of soaps and a new one (Holby Blue, starring Little Mo).

No male relief, not even from Ruth Badger on Sky (because that "pleasure" is denied those of us with Virgin), and especially not from How To Look Good Naked - Gok Wan helps a woman from Scunthorpe Rolling Eyes ...

And why assume that all women like soap operas? or that only women watch them, it's not true. Rolling Eyes

yep it's not like that in our house. My hubby is hooked on corrie, watches all those house fixer-up programmes, house buying programmes, house relocating programmes , escape from from your life programmes, wife swap programmes, football, cricket, snooker ( what is that all about?) and anything else that can be watched while drinking beer.......

I don't watch much TV at all, mostly I just listen to the Radio while cooking, cleaning, ironing, gardening, washing the cars ( his and mine) and gardening.

I watch 'Corrie' (it makes me smile) and 'Eastenders' (like watching a road accident; I don't really enjoy it). I also listen almost-religiously to 'The Archers'. So, it's not a female thing.

Patrick Moore (love him!) has been well-known as a right-wing, zylophone-playing loony for years. I just ignore his more surreal outbursts myself!

I think he's allowed to say what he thinks. It was not too far to the right and everyone must realise he is old school.
Anyway he also said that he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than appear on Celebrity Big Brother. Laughing Quite right!

He shares that opinion with Terry Wogan. Laughing

I don't watch soaps, but I resent Mother's Day being taken up with war films and cowboy films.

I also resent ITV1 putting nothing but murder mysteries on in the 4-6 slot on weekdays.

I'd also like to see decent music, drama and comedy programmes on at reasonable times rather than stuck away in a late night slot which means they will always get taken off for sports events.

And I hate being patronised by advertisers who think I only like shoes and fit young men singing established songs in foreign languages.

I watch about five hours of television a week. Can't abide soaps, hospital dramas, house-buying/doing-up programmes, reality bollocks or quiz shows. Sometimes I wonder why I have a television.... I'm watching far more via the PC at the moment.
