I wish I could get the UK's Channel 4 here in the States. I just discovered another C4 show last night being broadcast on Comedy Central....Trigger Happy TV...the funniest show I've seen in a long time. I was sad to hear that The Big Breakfast went off the air. That was a show I actually wanted to get up and watch. Anyway, just a little lamenting while bored at work.

I think it's on its 3rd repeat here in the UK. You can buy PAL DVDs in the UK (best of series 1 and whole of series 2).

Its ratings dwindled over the years, as did the quality of its presenters, but the thing they replaced it with (Ri::se) is doing even worse!

C4 and BBC2 have the programmes I watch the most. There's good comedy on BBC2 too - "The League of Gentlemen" springs to mind, as the third series is starting this week!

Sorry to hear that. I caught it the most about 2 or 3 years ago. I found the Big Breakfast to be a cross between NBC's Today Show and Comedy Central's Daily Show.

That sounds like long after The Ginger Twat[TM] left, who was responsible for much of the show's original popularity. Possibly Johnny Vaughn was presenting 2 or 3 years ago? (I haven't watched it much in the last few years. Johnny Vaughn (sp?) is a cockney-sounding geezer who now hosts a seasonal chat show on the BBC.)

What about Whose Line? And I don't mean that Drew Carey crap...even through all four contestants are great, Carey makes it kinda suck.
