The likes of Big Brother and the various Idols have been around for a few years now and every year as I sit down to watch them I remember what I didn’t like about them. Usually they follow the same old format even while promising something you’ve never seen before. Big Brother Australia has got two new hosts this year from radio which I don’t think will help revive it at all and they keep putting the same types of people into the house which does not add any interest whatsoever.
Australian Idol’s losing its popularity and there’s only so many singers available in Australia to make it any good so they’re expanding their search for Australians in Los Angeles and London, which I wrote about over on the Aussie Bloggers blog.
No doubt I’ll watch some of these shows, but not fanatically. I reserve my fanaticism for The Amazing Race.
