Australian television

If you watch these TV shows your IQ just dropped 50 points

I recently concluded that Australian television has hit an all time low – and I thought it was inconceivable that anything could possibly get any more ridiculous than the horror that was Celebrity Splash (the term ‘celebrity’ used in this context was blatantly hyperbolic). However, this was clearly an erroneous claim on my part, as evidence to the contrary has recently been discovered. The fact that a television program based solely on the premise of C-grade ‘celebrities’ falling over on a tilting set could not be in breach of the Broadcasting Services Act based on asininity alone, is abominable. My only possible conclusions are that either this puerile concept would suffice to engage the target audience of the lumpen proletariat; or alternatively, indicates sufficient grounds for an investigation into a mass-lobotomisation conspiracy.
