How can DH watch the tripe he does? How do I maintain a relationship with a hardened Jeremy Kyle watcher?

Jeremy Kyle, Goldenballs, Deal or No Deal, Lorraine Kelly - if it's guff, costs £3.50 to make, and he has a day off, there's no stopping him.

It's an argument in favour of recent alien abduction, there's no other possible explanation that will allow me to leave the remote in his possession. grin

Cut the plug off the TV.

clearly there is no option open to you but to insist he works everyday

my DH watches utter tripe too

he is normally an intelligent man

but he can sit through that shite "early saturday evening telly" for hours on end

me, it makes me want to kill myself

I'm with you there snigger! My DH will watch any shite if there's no football on. It gets on my NERVES when I hear him gaffawing at you've been framed.

My point exactly, scary, - he's not a knuckle-dragging cave-dweller at heart, but lowest common denominator tv seems to tug at something ancient in him.

He'd sit there for hours, grunting approval or scowling. Troglodite.

Go out and leave them to it.

Giggled at "Make him work every day". grin

snort at 'tug at something ancient in him.'

Primordial re-used tea-bag?

Mind you, jeremy kyle does have a point.

Dh works nights he likes to watch Jeremy Kyle on ITV2 in the afternoon. I am thinking about ... <quiet, but sneaky voice> divorce.

I love Jeremy Kyle - makes me realise I have a normal great life!

Sky multi-room. The key to a successful marriage IMHO! grin

Just be glad it's British. My dh will happily watch hours of wrestling and Miami Ink, which really does my head in.

blush I like miami ink too blush
