    TV3 are really pulling out all this stops this Christmas Eve.
    Brendan Grace live from The Royal Theatre in some place called Castlebar at 8pm tonight.WOW thats just made my Christmas.
    Hopefully Willie Wonka will get a run out

    I hope to god you mean the original with Gene Wilder and not the tripe of a remake that Mr Depp was in.

    To be fair even if sky didn't buy the rights it still would have been tripe just with home alone. Tv line up is so bad this year. There really is nothing to watch. It's so bad we're sticking on a DVD later.

    I like the comedy panel show specials that are on at Christmas. A League Of Their Own is on tonight at 9, and the Big Fat Quiz of the Year is on St Stephens Day at 9. 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is on Monday.

    Hopefully its a good one again.Was watching Hamster on The Alan Carr show and also Clarkson on The Jonathan Ross Show and both said it would be an eye opening show,they were tal,king about being run out of it by the locals in Argentina over their cars number plates and refferences to The Falklands.

    Did you watch it tonight?
    It was good enough,but its all rather predictable these days with TG.They were lucky that those cops didnt actually purposely lead them into that mob of 300 cars waiting for them.They were very lucky that they were not pulled from their cars and kicked to death by that mob.

    TG is an entertainment show, not a car show. I love it even though it's scripted as hell. :)

    That was a repeat from last year but the BBC are currently showing a full series of it because of the success of that one off special. I love it and I remember the original with Ronnie Barker with great writing from Roy Clarke!

    Take the shame out of accidents! Always wear clean underwear!
