The BBC is moving its new cooking show to avoid a clash with The Great British Bake Off when it launches on Channel 4.
Yes, these are the things we need to worry about here in the country with the 7th largest economy in the world. How dare Channel 4 who poached Bake Off from the BBC now schedule the new series to open at 20:00 BST on Tuesday 29 August.
The Big Family Cooking Showdown is on BBC Two was to be at the same time on Tuesdays. It has now been forced to move to Thursdays!!
What has ticked the BBC off is that Channel 4 have decided to move Bake Off from its previous Wednesday slot and that this would be a “surprise” for viewers who “may see this as a cynical move”.
Let’s have it right – these are two utterly pointless TV programs where really ‘Nice’ people get to cook in lavish kitchens and the audience is expected to go ‘oh and agh’ at their amazing culinary skills.
Only a society suffering chronic obesity could have a programme where they judge food. People here and around the world go to bed hungry but we have TV shows where one dish is judged to be better than another. Some people would simply be delighted if they actually had a dish a day.
