No young people watch this and they watch Love Island
I'd forgotten how UNBEARABLE Kathreya was (GAVE UP ON THAT SERIES EARLY ON) and how FABULOUS Vanessa Feltz is
Yes, thank you for keeping us informed on the televisual tastes of the twinks locked in your basement, however "Love Island" is basically UNWATCHABLE
Why are you STILL flirting with me?
NO COCKING IN MY ROOM
It was the SHITTEST EVICTION NON-TWIST ever. Seriously WHO is in charge of this show? They need SHOOTING
Bless Simone in the interview, explains some of her behaviour I guess
I know this has fallen out of favour over the years, but it really is quite marked how Love Island has got all the tabloid coverage over this, isn't it? It really is going to be a night on BOTS with Rylan and that's it.
I came on here to post about Love Island's record breaking viewing figures only to discover there isn't even a thread about it... Moopy so on trend as ever...
But seriously, in a world where Big Brother actually tries to show different sides of society, different ages, different sorts of people, it's very telling that the young only want to watch 18-25 year old, perfectly formed, beauties on a hot island destination. It's so insular and closed.
My boyfriend thinks Love Island is great entertainment but that Big Brother is boring. I think Love Island is heteronormative bullshit. And while I didn't keep up with Big Brother (again) I'd still choose it for its attempts at diversity, every time.
Love Island is unwatchable
Record breaking in what sense? For a UK reality show?
For ITV2 - 2.9 million viewers at its peak and beat all the terrestrial channels apart from ITV1.
I tried with Love Island, but it's such heteronormative junk. This was the least I ever watched BB as well. Every time I switched on there were new boring people and that old leathery man.
Apparently the producers of Love Island are launching an LGBTQINBetc. version next year. Great!
Also, Celebrity Big Brother starts next week, which is always more watchable than the civillian series now.
Channel 4 really do need to dump the civilian series
What were the viewing figures like this year? I know it's lost the headlines, but is it still performing by 5's standards?
They did: 7 years ago.
The viewing figures last night were 700,000, which is obviously far from great but doesn't seem THAT bad considering how there's been zero interest in the series.
Who is the fave to win?
I suspect the fact that the civilian series is so short now (54 days vs. 94 days in 2008) means it's still vaguely profitable in terms of the commitment from sponsors.
For the week or so I did watch she looks weird as fuck, but didn't seem to give a shit, which was quite fun.
I wonder how that compares with what 5 would normally show at that time at any other time of the year. And I don't imagine it costs that much to make - or at least a lot of the cost would be incurred by the celeb version anyway.
My rankings of who's left
I don't know WHAT is going on but Isabelle deserves to win just for that SOMBRERO and PINK WIG COMBO
It never was explained
ANDREW is one of the MOST GHASTLY people I've seen on BB and my goodness there's some competition
Andrew is a NIGHTMARE. I'm honestly struggling to think of a Scottish housemate I've liked.
Last night's wedding episode was brilliant
BAGGY FANNY FUCK OFF
You're a WHORE!
It's his incensed "FUCK OFF" that makes it for me
Nothing worse than a camp Glaswegian accent!
I can't stand the way he says Bitch - I'm a bit of a BETCH
Halli Clip of The Week.
I actually can't stop watching it
He sounds like almost every queen I have had the misfortune of knowing over the years.
Apparently this is still on and somebody won.
Love Island wiped it out this year, by two million viewers.
The people who did best were all QUITE ORDINARY AND NICE and NOT SCREECHING REALITY TV WANNABEES
Someone somewhere take a HINT
As soon as that GOB ON LEGS CHANELLE started squealing through YOU GOT THE LOVE on BOTS it was *CLICK* time. If it is true that she is going to get her OWN TV SHOW then GOD HELP US ALL
