What can I say about 20 to 1? It is pure stupidity.
Hosted by washed up talk show host Bert Newton, 20 to 1 counts down the top 20 Celebrity Scandals, Movie Lines, Heroes and Villains etc. Sure, it sounds like an interesting show. It's not. Each segment is filled with commentary by washed up Australian Nobody's such as former Big Brother house mates, rejects from Australian Idol, the list goes on and on, these people don't know what they're talking about, nor does anyone care. 20 to 1 is EXTREMELY biased to Australia, for example, in "Greatest Movie Moments" at least 7 of the 20 moments were Australian. Whoever makes these lists obviously has no idea what they are doing, especially in the case of "Greatest songs of the decade" which featured hits from the last two years, which was just crap. Not only do these list's suck, but they are repeated i.e. Movie Heroes and Villains" - 11 September 2007 and Movie Saints and Sinners" - 27 November 2007. And let's not forget the incredibly lame Bert Newton making lame cheap jokes in between each segment, Ugh.
Avoid this show at all costs. It is pure crap.
