Trivia

The series replaced Five's long-running news programme 5 News (1998). It was a critical and ratings disaster, being described by Michael Parkinson as "hands down" the "worst ever show" and by Charlie Brooker as "a TV show that makes any and all previous accusations of "dumbing down" seem like misplaced phoney-war hysteria". Channel 5 then went back to a more serious news programme instead. See more »

Vacuous to an absurd degree
3 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the 1990s, Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish presented a comedy sketch show called "The Adam and Joe Show". One sketch involved them pretending to be television presenters for a vapid mid afternoon show called "people places". In this show the presenters would go to public places such as shopping centres, and coerce members of the public into performing absurd tasks (talent competitions and so forth). The presenters yapped very quickly and every event seemed to be a rush for a sound bite, with no real substance.

And now, several years later, we have a full one hour version!

At least, that's what I think this is. The alternative, that this is a serious attempt at a news programme, is just too terrifying. The presenters' "buddy buddy" atmosphere is transparently insincere. The content lineup tackles news issues such as rugby players' new line of pasta sauces, or sections asking members of the public called 'Madge' to send in their photos.

This show is perfect for those of you who found loose women too high brow and intellectual.
