Joke's over: how the TV panel show fell from grace

In their day, there was something intoxicating about the no-holds-barred panel show back-and-forth. But there seems to be little room for it in a society that has begun to appreciate empathy - and neither, conversely, in a more brutal political climate that is not particularly suitable for dissecting for cheap laughs. Perhaps, when the world lightens up again, they'll be back.

It's time to pull the plug on Bloke TV

After 19 years, 28 series, 255 episodes, dozens of specials and the usual suspects thrashing around in a pile of freshly milked bile each week, the BBC has finally, finally, finally pulled the plug on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Hurrah for that. As far as many of us are concerned, the demise of this spiteful, puerile, sexist panel show cannot come a moment too soon.
