A great many people say that British comedy has gone down the toilet. Well, these people can't have seen Richard and Judy, a show packed with humour (albeit mostly unintentional). You can guarantee that in any given episode Judy will fluff every other line she has to speak and just look bewildered about most subjects and Richard will say something incredibly embarrassing to a guest or about Judy. Also very amusing was when they recruited Abi Titmuss as a reporter, who was only famous for being John Leslie's girlfriend, and then dropped her like a brick after sordid tabloid reports about her relationship with the aforementioned Mr Leslie. Somebody should have known better.
My wife and I watched a programme on Thursday evening about the training of Geisha girls and the point was made many times in that programme that Geisha girls are not prostitutes but entertainers. If a relationship is on offer it is entirely up to them whether or not they take it up. It was therefore totally wrong of Richard to contradict Judy (rather rudely)today and to insist that he was right to label the Geisha profession as prostitution. This rudeness on Richard's part seems to be a characteristic of the new series and it is regrettable as it detracts from what was, and could be again, an entertaining family show.

I don't watch it that often unless there is a really good celebrity guest appearing, but when I do watch this it's quite good. Richard Madeley and Judy present this quite good mid-day chat show which also includes some good competitions and latest news. The most interesting parts of the show for me are You Say We Pay where Richard and Judy guess what a caller is describing, and obviously when a guest is on. They've had Kacey Ainsworth, Les Dennis, Amanda Holden, Jessie Wallace, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Geri Halliwell, S Club 7, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Kyle MacLachlan, Simon Cowell, Delia Smith, Des O'Connor, Gina Yashere, Charlotte Church, Charlie Higson, Samantha Mumba, Gordon Ramsay, Danny Dyer, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Zoë Wanamaker, Dido, Brian McFadden, Letitia Dean, Hear'say, James Nesbitt, Sir Ian McKellen, David Suchet, Alan Titchmarsh, Brenda Blethyn, Hugh Grant, Julie Walters, Daryl Hannah, Claire Sweeney, Tony Blackburn, Paul O'Grady, Tom Hanks, Holly Valance, Kim Cattrall, Sue Perkins, Graham Norton, Samuel L.

The only thing that's hard to get used is obviously Richard talking more than Judy, but apart from that it's fine occasionally. Richard Madeley was number 60 on The 100 Worst Britons, the programme was number 96 on The 100 Greatest Funny Moments for the Little Britain spoof, and it has been on all 100 Greatest TV Treats programmes so far. Very good!
