DD is watching it at the moment and pretty much everything about it (apart from one of the presenters, Cel?) makes me want to stab a screwdriver in my ear and scratch my eyes out.

The smug lad who dances every week. The terrible, out-of-tune song that's just been on - sung live by a girl of about 15. The 'Style Download' for girls. And now the dancing lad is teaching how to do your laces like him!

I hate it, hate it, hate it!!!

I've just caught a few minutes of it...

DS watched him do his laces and asked me of if he was wearing childrens shoes

but they do make the 'musical' (and i use this term very lightly) guests wear clothes instead of bikinis and fake tan

I'm quite shocked that at least one of the presenters (dancing boy, again) is still at school! And the crap that comes out of his mouth sometimes, he bloody needs to be. More learning and less dancing please, young man.

Too much make-up on the girls as well.

DD (11) is their target demographic though and she loves it. Suppose it's better than the shite she watches on Pop Girl - eurgh.

I don't like it.

My parents didn't like Tizwas or rentaghost though.

I haven't watched it but my two older children love it, am taking them to watch it being filmed in a couple of weeks!

My parents loved Tizwas! And I genuinely love most of the stuff my kids watch, but this is just so down with the kids it makes me want to vomit.

Pop girl makes me weep inside, luckily DD likes Pop, there are some great science shows on that channel

It's better than the shite my DD is currently watching on Disney Channel. That truly makes me want to stab my eyes out.

She's going to Scouts in half an hour so I can reclaim the remote

We seem to swing between Pop Girl (with the really inappropriate Two of A Kind - where the Dad's friend asked him if his date was 'stacked' last week - my face was shock to say the least) and Tiny Pop which seems to show the programmes every other channel rejected.

I really miss CBeebies but DS won't watch it anymore...
