    I think I saw it on this forum.

    Somebody was keeping track of the subject matter of the Late Late show for a year or something.

    It was basically a list of the most miserable and depressing topics known to man. The post looked something like this:

    1st May Late Late topic: Cancer

    7th May Late Late topic: AIDS

    14th May Late Late topic: Girl whose family died in a horrific crash

    21st May Late Late topic: More cancer

    28st May Late Late topic: Person with brain tumour

    etc etc etc

    Does that ring a bell?

    That gets updated every week but there was a separate thread covering previous seasons. Not sure if it was the same person who did it though.
