I can only imagine they were desperate to clear the schedules for some serious, high-brow entertainment like *checks notes* "Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly", "When... Pop Stars Go Horribly Wrong" and "Shopping for a New Penis"

LBR they probably only break even with Friends too because it's expensive to air!

Probably not even that as you can catch Friends on Comedy Central 257,000 times a day.

Its even on Netflix as well, I’m puzzled as to why they bought the rights to air the show in the first place but I suppose they’ve gotta try and get some viewers to watch their channel eh?

Three of their top 10 watched last week were Princess Dianna documentaries, so they've found their audience....

I can easily say, I can't recall more than 3 things I've watched on channel 5 since BB was axed.

It just has nothing to draw me in now.
