Mean spirited, disrespectful, vile, this is one show that should be cancelled.
2 December 2012 | by NicolasHunter500See all my reviews

Just when you think or feel like Australian television couldn't get any worse ( Half of the programming is now eaten up by talent shows or cooking programs) suddenly, this vile,brainless, misguided and utterly irresponsible slop finally ends up on television and gets passed for 'entertainment'. Most of the show covers nonsensical and redundant topics like who's the latest celebrity airhead dating or breaking up with,the show fails to ever report on anything worthwhile that is actually affecting the world as it stands, and worst of all, all of the news is delivered by unfunny, ignorant and venomous reporters ( most of which are comedians who were thrown off of another bad television show, Rove Live) so anyone who is seen that show knows the level of humour and wit their in for when they watch this. The show insensitively pokes fun at subjects that aren't funny, like people who have been in disasters, accidents, you get the picture. The fact is that the reporters are condescending, boneheaded and spit out distasteful comments whenever they get the chance. You feel bad for literally everyone they make fun of, its OK for these morons to try and poke fun at, say, someone who has been in a tornado or have had their house destroyed by storms because they can go home to their mansions and their high salaries, but half of the people they maliciously laugh at are often left with nothing. Shows like this are a testament to the low standards audiences have and proof that they will watch any moronic and tasteless drivel that is thrown at them. Shows like these are the reason why Australia's society and culture is becoming more mean and intolerant, even more so when they have bigots like these people give them news and show them the rest of the world while they spout out their own misguided and repugnant views of it. Shameful.
