Default Channel 5 is officially dead



After Today, Channel 5 is officially, well and truly Dead, all because of one evil scumbag, Bent Frown. Bent Murdered the channel by surgically removing the beating heart of the channel, which is of course BIG BROTHER.

The days of getting those +1m ratings will be long gone. Nobody will watch it now that Bent Frown has ditched the channel's biggest show. What a pity.

In a post-BB world, C5 is destined to suffer, with a barrel-scraping roster of awful, embarrassing, pointless flops such as:
-Horrid, demeaning benefits documentaries exploiting people who can't/won't work, all for the sake of ratings
-Trashy Love Scum Island rip-offs like Undercover Girlfriend & Make or Break (Both of which flopped miserably)
-The pointless Can't Pay We'll Take it Away (They should take this rubbish away instead)
-Rich House Poor House (WHO CARES??)
-In Therapy With [Insert troubled celebrity name here]
-Cruising with Jane Sodding McDonald (What's the big deal over some middle-aged woman on a cruise ship?? Overrated tripe.)
-A ****load of other pointless shows with Jane McDonald
-Botched-up Bodies (Who in their right mind would want to watch this gruesome shower of ****e??)
-GPs Behind Closed Doors (Again, WHO CARES???)
-The Hotel Inspector (Waste of airtime.)
-A load of random US imports (CSI, NCIS, The X Files, Will & Grace, Friends etc.)
-Those pointless compilation shows (No one watches them or cares about them anyway)
-C5's ruddy version of Blind Date
-Operation: Live (Who in their right mind would get pleasure out of watching someone being operated on??)
-SuperBloodyCasino
-A load of pointless timewasting documentaries
-The Yorkshire Vet (A load of pointless drivel)
-A ****load of pointless tv shows about railways/trains (WTF is Bent Frown's obsession with sodding trains???)
and all the other mind-numbing crap C5 will continue to air

How the hell can these shows manage to get any more than 800k viewing figures?? Bent Frown should seriously hang his ugly head in shame!

Other than BB the only show I ever watched on C5 in the last year was a Eurovision show and Will and Grace. Only watched Will and Grace because it was sandwiched between BB.

I find the benifits and balif shows quite troubling. Taking advantage of vulnerable people is just gross. Always remember watching one and a lady in a wheelchair was struggling with money and getting kicked out of her adapted house and they showed her sobbing about leaving the house she and her deceaded husband had lived in for 40 years and I just found it so tasteless.

As much as I hate Ben Frow BB gets a quarter of what Jane does in viewing figures, its actually on parr with Undercover Girlfriends which is so embarrassing to the legacy of BB.

Ben Frow seemed genuinely interested during BB14 and took the camp away (ahem Brian Dowling dancing with show girls on launch night) and was extremely helpful often answering viewers emails personally and tried his best to get more live feed that weve ever had on Channel 5 BUT it all went downhill from 2013.

He reeped the profits and benefits from the show that kept him employed then threw it to one side very publicly by constantly telling media he didn't want the show, Channel 5 were looking for a new direction and finally flat out cancelling it.

BB is better as off away from Ben Frow and Channel 5 as possible. They are like sexual predators who took advantage of a show whilst it was young to them, abused it, rinsed it then threw it to one side when they were done.

Rest in peace douche bags!

It's now just a minority channel with nothing that will capture my attention.
I've watched things on before BBs time slot, and programmes inbetween BB and bbbots.

Channel 5 is now likely never to be on in my home.

I'm sure that no self-respecting human being would want to touch Channel 5 with a barge pole given the roster of shows I posted in the OP. After today, I'm boycotting C5, and I'm sure a lot of BB fans are too. Bent Frown deserves his karma.

Explains how low C5's standards are. Sad but true.

It's been nearly two months since BB ended on channel 5 and its safe to say that since then, Channel 5 have officially gone from bad to worse.

Firstly, they're bringing back The Bachelor UK, which flopped terribly when C5 last aired it in 2012. I honestly cannot understand why they would even think about replacing BB with a programme that they have already aired before and failed. I can already see it flopping once again, no one cared about it the first time anyway and no one will care about it this time either.

Secondly, their new year's eve schedule consists of the following ****e:

20:00
Cruising With Jane McDonald
S2 E5 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

21:00
Jane McDonald & Friends
S2 E8 JANE & FRIENDS AT NEW YEAR

22:00
The Jane McDonald Story
S1 E1 THE JANE MCDONALD STORY

22:55
Cruising With Jane McDonald
S2 E3 RHONE RIVER

23:55
Jane McDonald & Friends
S2 E9 EPISODE 9

It's so blatantly obvious that Bent Frown has a boner for Jane McDonald. I mean seriously, who in their right mind would want to watch an evening dedicated to some washed-up, irrelevant cruise ship singer?? Certainly not me.

And then there are those time-wasting railroad/train documentaries (There's like 100 of them now) and meaningless compilation shows such as "Britain's Favourite Biscuit" and now "Britain's Favourite Chocolate Bar", what next?? Britain's Favourite Crisps?? So juvenile and pathetic.

And don't get me started on those tedious benefits documentaries and their other awful and overrated shows such as Rich House Poor House, Can't Pay, We'll Take It Away, Yorkshire Vet, Hotel Inspector, GPs Behind Closed Doors etc.

If this is what C5 will look like without BB, then Bent Frown and co. should be deeply ashamed of themselves because they're just scraping the bottom of the barrel with their awful roster. It might as well be re-named to "Channel Scum", "Channel Flop" or "Channel Jane McDonald".

I hate c5 but I think people should look at the rating. I believe C5 had a great November and December without BB ratings wise with most of their 9pm shows doing better than BB19.
