Ten Reasons For The Decline And Fall Of TV

1. Too many lists
2. More shouty people than professorial types
3. 'Friends' repeats 24/7
4. Tendency to think that the fly on the wall format is in itself a stroke of comedy genius
5. Bizarre belief that catchphrases get better with repetition
6. Conviction that well-known 'Jack of All Trades' aphorism doesn't apply to celebrities
7. Reithian principles abandoned in favour of the Blobbyian
8. The steady and ignoble demotion of TOTP
9. The lack of country-wide programming a la 'Nationwide'
10. That brilliant bald bloke from 'Saturday Kitchen' losing his job to Anthony Worrall Thompson
