Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

March 27, 2006

Pot. Kettle. Black.

MediaGuardian.co.uk | Broadcast | Ross joins Davina's critics:
Jonathan Ross joined the chorus of disapproval for Davina McCall's struggling BBC1 chatshow from the This Morning couch today, saying she seems uninterested in some guests."

Unlike Jonathan Ross, of course, who never fails to ask questions beyond the ONE thing that everybody already knows about his guest(s).


  • Whenever I watch him he always makes me wince by asking something embarrassing and then going on about it for ages.

    You know what I mean? Like he'll ask Barbara Streisand if she'd like to sniff his cock. And you can see that she would be visibly uncomfortable and doesn't quite know how to react.

    But I know this could be described as probing the guest, or exploiting their own greed in appearing on the show for money, or exposing them for self-promotion, and all of those sorts of reasons, but I just happen to be of an age (similar to Ross himself) that doesn't derive any pleasure from seeing somebody squirm. It's just painful for everyone.

    As a result we never watch him anymore.

  • His tv show isn't all that, but his Radio 2 show is still one of the most entertaining thing on the radio - particularly the first hour when he just rants and abuses poor Andy. I find that its only a few guests who don't 'get' him.

  • Aye, it's probably just me.

    I am indeed Disenfranchised Dave when it comes to "getting" most cultural things.

  • No, it's not just you. I can't stand watching him, he makes me squirm.
