Great programming on TV

A man from Exeter in Devon was said to be excited today when he found something to watch on daytime TV.

The man who can't be named for fear of identity fraud (Eric Crunch, 4a The Street, Exeter, 01392 999911, 47 years old, National Insurance Number X123 456 79Z, Passport GB1234567890, Driving Licence CRUN1234567890 exp 2027) was said to be in total shock following his discovery of an original hour long factual programme that held his attention.

He was also amazed that the programme didn't contain Vanessa Feltz, Richard, Judy, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Regis Philbin, Robin Day, Hughie Green or any of the myriad of stars who can't find work anywehere else. Neither were there advertisements for compensation, insurance comparisons or incredibly low-quality furniture at perpertual sale prices.

ITV have since apologised to all watchers for transmitting this programme of value and have promised that it won't happen again.

The channel has suggested that anyone who does find something useful or interesting on daytime tv should consult their Sky magazine to find something moronic on one of the lesser subscribed satellite channels.

They have also suggested that people don't write in to complain, as the person who normally ignores the public's letters of complaint is away on holiday.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
