As you may have heard, a judge has criticised The Jeremy Kyle Show.

My favourite quote in the report : ‘District Judge Alan Berg said the ITV1 daytime programme was “trash” and existed to “titillate bored members of the public with nothing better to do”.’

But surely the clues are there: A programme on ITV1 during the daytime? If you’re watching a programme that falls into both those categories, you really do have to be bored, with nothing better to do.

*From ‘Jerry Springer – The Opera’. Ignore the ill-informed criticisms, it’s actually a very funny, musically accomplished, and rather wise piece of work. Get the DVD and see what I mean.
