image for New BBC "Christmas Special Comedy" a surprise hit with the viewers
Counting down to yet another BBC repeat

With the 2010 Christmas television schedule having being described by a very astute, literary and respected critic as "total crap", the BBC today pulled off the biggest surprise of the year with its special comedy show shown straight after the Queen's speech.

The "No Ronnies Show", a spectacular collection of funny sketches set in traditional situations, but with altogether funny punchlines, managed to air from beginning to end without the appearance of a single Ronnie of any description, living or dead.

And to reinforce the "No Ronnie" message, there were no Veronicas, Donnys, Bonnies, Lonnys or even Connies in sight, which ruled out an appearance by any of the 'Britain's got Talent', 'X-Factor' or 'Britain's also got Lloyd-Webber' failures from the past decade - but more importantly ensuring no one named Osmond or Langford appeared anywhere on television during Christmas.

A spokesman from the BBC, who was interviewed at home counting his past year's spectacularly high annual salary, said that this was part of the BBC's policy of "forging ahead with fabulous entertainment".

He also said this was a policy likely not to be repeated in the near future, unlike the re-runs of Morecambe and Wise, Dr Who and EastEnders that we have grown to love and admire as they get repeated incessantly on BBC 2, BBC3 and BBC4.

Make Steddyeddy's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
