However, for people like me who love soaps, reality TV and TV that viewers can "control", you might be happy. Rock Rivals begins on ITV1 tonight which is basically a spoof / black comedy / drama, of reality TV shows like Pop Idol, American Idol and X-Factor. It stars Michelle Collins (ex EastEnders) and Sean Gallagher (ex Coronation Street) from two of my favourite soaps.
They play husband & wife judges on celebrity talent show (ooh like Fame Academy & The One & Only where judges David & Carrie Grant are really husband & wife). The Guardian love it & report that "It has sex dolls, Ferraris and a character called Angel Islington.....The characters are painted in broad strokes and have suitably daft names - Sundae Gorgeous or Angel Islington, anyone? ."
Also "Viewers will be asked to choose their desired ending to the show this spring before the final episode airs. Two endings will be filmed and the UK public will get the chance between the penultimate episode and the final one to decide who wins." Just like reality TV! Genius.
