NewsGush: Richard not Judy

by

Though we all knew the day would come, it still comes as a shock to learn that Richard and Judy – TV’s very own Mum ‘n’ Dad – will most likely go their separate ways after their apparently unwatchable series on channel ‘Watch’ finishes.

This is not the end of the affair romantically, you understand. It’s strictly a professional parting. Richard wants to go and present more series about hurricanes, twisters and shoplifting, whilst Judy has her own projects to concentrate on (drinking, mainly).

Speaking on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Madeley said: “We both feel we have done pretty much all we can do as a partnership, but I think probably we both feel the need to diversify.

“It has been over 20 years doing the same kind of thing and there are tantalising possibilities in terms of solo projects or one-off projects together.”

Their latest venture, Richard & Judy’s New Position, is reportedly facing the axe after viewing figures fell to just 8,000.

Don’t get me wrong – I like Richard and Judy and was sad to see that their rash judgement in moving to an unknown cable channel backfired.

But 8,000?

What have they done to make it sink that low? Are they hosting urine-drinking competitions? Is their new content just footage of the inside of dustbins? Do they trample pensioners over the opening credits?

Has anyone actually seen it?

    “Are they hosting urine-drinking competitions?”

    i bet i can find at least 10.000 UK residents that are willing to tune in that show. a rise in viewing figures of 25 %.

  2. Swineshead Says:

    Fair point, Indy.

    Sorry for the short post today, I’m still numb having watched a film called ‘Martyrs’ last night. Good God, it was grim. Definitely not a date movie.

  3. scissorkicks Says:

    I don’t have satellite – only Freeview – and therefore wouldn’t be able to watch it even if I wanted to. I think this has something to do with it.

  4. Swineshead Says:

    My poor old ma and pa still live in a non-freeview area. And they refuse to get Sky. And they can’t even get Channel 5. iPlayer is their only salvation.

  5. Quincy Phd Says:

    It’s sat on a channel that no-one knows exists, surrounded by repeats of Wycliffe and Poirot and features a set that looks like a cast off from Twin Peaks’ Black Lodge.

    They were meant to be a flagship show for a new and innovative channel, however that channel looks exactly like every other channel hawking repeats and adverts and so people couldn’t be bothered to skip through them all hoping that they might be able to remember which one had Richard and Judy.

    Basically, they got greedy.

    Your Ma and Pa have it best, SH – life without multiple channel TV is the way forward. Hack the airwaves and claim back analogue once the switchover is complete…!

  6. Napoleon Says:

    8,000?

    On the subject of mas and pas – my mother and step father have recently acquired a new digital set but, because they steadfastly refuse to read the instructions, have actually lost a channel. They’re down to three now. In a similar vein, I bought my mother a new computer monitor a few months back, and I was talking to her last week about the public information films available to watch on the National Archives site. She expressed an interest, but said she’d not be able to watch them because her computer didn’t have sound. I pointed out this wasn’t 1995, and that perhaps she might consider exploring either the instructions or the cable that was still in the box. She’s now living in an incredible wonderland of online sound, if you can imagine such a thing.

  7. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    Nap.. She’s now living in an incredible wonderland of online sound, if you can imagine such a thing.

    There was a first time for all of us.

  8. Napoleon Says:

    It’s the fact the previous monitor (which she’d had for three years) had sound too. If only she’d thought to plug the fucking cable in, eh?

  9. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    Richard & Julie on c4 was I guess a good program, in as much as that it knew it’s audience and what would interest them. (Bit similar to the Daily Mail).

    Their program is not designed for me, and I must admit it was difficult finding the odd book that did not have the R&J bookclub sticker on it. No way could this logo be on my bookshelf. NO WAY.

  10. Napoleon Says:

    DINLT – Why’s that?

  11. breeks Says:

    prat-chard and rudie.

  12. badgermadge Says:

    SH I have a Freeview TV but no signal here in Bath yet, and I also refuse to get Sky.

    But yes, 8,000 is pitiful even for R&J. Can we put out an appeal to track the R&J 8K down? See what they’re like? ask them… things?

  13. Swineshead Says:

    I admit I watched it once. Am I one of the 8,000?

    Just watching that berk Julie Myerson getting a grilling from paxo. Highly entertaining.

    ‘Addicted to skunk’…. pffft!

  14. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    I guess because I am a bit snotty Nap.

    Yes this Julie Myerson thing I think is a bit exploitative. 2 points.

    1). She says she wrote the book to sympathise with other parents who might be going the same thing. She should surely be primarily concerned for her son.

    2). Is this publicising going to do the son any favours for his future career?

  15. Swineshead Says:

    The lights are on
    But noone’s home
    She might as well face it he’s addicted to skunk.

    I smoke skunk every day and I’m not addi….

    Hang on!

  16. badgermadge Says:

    Paxo? In the morning????

    Is he the new Kyle?

  17. Swineshead Says:

    On Catch Up – a special cable feature from the future, BM.

  18. Napoleon Says:

    DINLT – A bit snotty? I didn’t watch Richard & Judy, so don’t know what sort of books are in their club. Is it all shit books?

  20. Swineshead Says:

    That was from memory so forgive me any mistakes.

  21. Tom Laird Says:

    Don’t know a lot about R&J, they seem relatively inoffensive. Perhaps therein lies the seeds of their demise. That’s a decent photo of her. Looks a bit Agnetha Faltzkogy. Arrrghhh NO! The nads, The nads.

    As for Myerson(arrghh the nads again) I got the impression at first that her son was some kind of violent , drug crazed psycho who sold all the family silver and furniture to fuel his evil heroin and homicide habit.

    Is that not the case now?

  22. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    …and they have all the Richard & Judy bookclub stamped on them, not a sticky label that you can peel off, but embossed into the cover.

  23. Tom Laird Says:

    Have I happened by Amazon by mistake?

  24. Napoleon Says:

    I’ve read one of those.

  25. ugeine Says:

    I thought they were still on channel 4?

    Re: Waccy baccy. It’s easy to blame things on. If you fuck up your exams, job, can’t be arsed to get out of bed or get a job, it provides a decent excuse.

  26. Excelsior! Says:

    I used to watch R&J when it was on channel 4. It was awesome comedy value. Stand out interview for me was one with a man researching the ark of the covenant.
    R – and of course its in another dimension isnt it
    Man – yes yes its transdimensional

    Natch

    It was fantastic on said waccy baccy

  27. Tom Laird Says:

    I thought “can’t be arsed” is a decent enough excuse not to get out of bed. I’m lying in my festering pit scrathing my bollocks with the other hand as I write this.

    Aahhhhh bliss!

    Wacky Backy be damned.

    Is he not the President of Kenya?

  28. Swineshead Says:

    Oh goodie – Tom’s doing his hilarious ‘foreign names’ routine again.

    *rubs hands*

  29. Tom Laird Says:

    Only coz I know you enjoy it so much.

  30. breeks Says:

    you’d think the daytime viewing figures’d be raised in light of the credit crunch and all those bankers sat at home doing nothing but waiting for an economic upturn.

  31. Swineshead Says:

    It’s not only bankers sitting at home doing nothing, Breeks. I myself am currently sitting on my arse doing nowt. Apart from eating Monster Munch.

  32. breeks Says:

    sh – of course. i’ve never eaten monster munch, actually.

  33. Tom Laird Says:

    That Nick Gleason had the right Idea. He didn’t just sit around waiting for an economic upturn.He jolly well got on his bike and made one happen for himself.

    An inspiration to us all.

  34. Tom Laird Says:

    He was great in the Smokey and Thee Bandit films as well.

  35. Tom Laird Says:

    How much is a Packet of Monster Munch these days?

  36. Swineshead Says:

    Isn’t the problem that the banking industry as an entity in itself got into the whole ‘rogue trading’ vibe, to a certain extent?

    Bree – you haven’t lived.

    Well – you may have lived, but you certainly haven’t experienced one of the best maize snacks on the market.

  37. Excelsior! Says:

    Only 2000 newly minted british pounds

  38. Swineshead Says:

    Tom – I’m not sure. 40 – 45 pence?

  39. Swineshead Says:

    Exelsior! – really?

    I’ve been done up like a kipper!

  40. Excelsior! Says:

    Damn i knew that door to door crisp salesman was up to something.

  41. Excelsior! Says:

    Sorry thought id been done up for a second there. Whyve YOU been done up?

  42. Tom Laird Says:

    Surely not. I can get proper crisps for 40p.

    The poundy used to do huge bags of monster munch for…er …well a pound.

    Or maybe they were cover version ones.

  43. Swineshead Says:

    Well I wasn’t looking when they put it through the till…

    One of us has been done.

  44. Napoleon Says:

    Some German man’s just knocked on my window and asked me if the envelope he found in the street has anything to do with me. It had shit from him upstairs’s dogs on it.

  45. Tom Laird Says:

    Was it the shit or the envelope he felt you were responsible for?

  46. Tom Laird Says:

    I’d watch out. It sounds like a propagandist prerequisite to start a war. They did a similar thing with Poland.

  47. Napoleon Says:

    It was the envelope, not the shit. It was for a bloke wot died in my flat before I moved in. I think him upstairs must have thrown it out and it’s fell out of the bin and onto some shit. Weirdly, the German fella took the envelope away with him even though I told him it was for a bloke that used to live here. So he’s now wandering the area with a shit-covered envelope in his pocket.

  48. myopiniononstuff Says:

    The Testamant of Gideon Mack, one of the best books I’ve ever read, was in the Richard and Judy Book Club, thank you very much!

  49. Tom Laird Says:

    Probably part of the whole German scat fetish thing.

    Or perhaps there is some new EU directive regarding shitty envelopes.

  50. Napoleon Says:

    Never heard of that, Dave. Is there a bit where a titanium-clad Soviet super robot controlled by magnets smashes its way into the Pentagon and breaks some heads apart in 1973?

  51. Tom Laird Says:

    Isn’t that the lyrics to a James blunt song?

  52. myopiniononstuff Says:

    Shit. That sounds awesome!

    The R&J efforts just about some priest that goes missing down a cave and then claims he’s spoken to the devil himself.

  53. myopiniononstuff Says:

    I did write my comment like a piece of performance poetry, TL. It’s because I enjoy to write comments that way sometimes.

  54. breeks Says:

    i recall someone going on about pickled onion monster munc.h hmmm.

  55. Napoleon Says:

    I don’t mind the pickled onion ones. Prefer the beef, mind. Lovely, lovely beef Monster Munch.

  56. breeks Says:

    hmmm. maybe i should try ’em.

    then again probably won’t. can’t be as good as aussie crisps. which are called chips. cause that’s what they are.

  57. Tom Laird Says:

    No. Chips are lumps of potato deep fried in oil or lard. Wot you are on about are crispy.That’s why they are called crisps.

    nyah!

  58. breeks Says:

    no tom laird. them be Hot Chips.

    crispy is onomatopeia, not a foodstuff.

  59. Tom Laird Says:

    Don’t try to tell a Scotchlander what chips are. I was weaned on them.

  60. Nick T Says:

    I never understood how R&J got so popular.
    Now they’re not…

  61. breeks Says:

    i don’t try. i do. i do tell you.

    *runs

  62. Tom Laird Says:

    Coming from the Antipodes Breeks you will have all sorts of wrong names for things. Like calling flip-flops “thongs”. And Fosters “beer”.

  63. breeks Says:

    wrong is perception, and i perceive you are wrong. you don’t get enough sun nor vegetables and therefore your decision making cannot be trusted.

  64. Tom Laird Says:

    I think since this Sceptered Isle invented the language I think they should know what the definition of the words are. The Engurlish have decided that chips are not crisps and vice versa. Being a colonial you have to live with it. It’s the rules. Especially as ‘er Maj’ still officially owns Australia.

  65. breeks Says:

    actually the japan and china most own australia.

  66. breeks Says:

    actually the japan and china mostly own australia.

  67. indy Says:

    Tom Laird: “Probably part of the whole German scat fetish thing.”

    scatman johann?

  68. Tom Laird Says:

    Well hence the reason they are even wronger.

    I thought you were mostly Croatian these days.

  69. Tom Laird Says:

    Yes indeed. He did the voice of Hong Kong Phooey in the German version.

  70. breeks Says:

    only some parts of melbourne.

    anyway, my point stands. you’re wrong about chips/crisps.

  71. indy Says:

    actually the japan and china mostly own australia.

  72. indy Says:

    actually the japan and china most own australia.

  73. Tom Laird Says:

    Yeah alright indy, don’t labour a point.

  74. Nick T Says:

    “Chips” is what Americans call crisps.

    Calling sweets “lollies” is Austalias own invention I believe

  75. indy Says:

    where i come from “uk crisps” = chips and “uk chips” = pommes frites.

    how do you like them potatoes?

  76. myopiniononstuff Says:

    Australia brought us Skippy, Round the Twist and the Minogue sisters. And that is all they have brought us, apart from Extra Dry beer (which is good).

    I hope that settles the debate.

  77. Tom Laird Says:

    In The Shining how come Scatman Carruthers can see whats happening 300 miles away, then can’t see Jack Nicholson hiding round the corner with a big axe.
    Surely one of the most pointless characters/sequences in a film ever?

  78. Tom Laird Says:

    Rack of ..take yer hand of it!

  79. Tom Laird Says:

    Off

  80. Napoleon Says:

    I don’t mind Neighbours. Mainly for the women, if I’m honest.

  81. Tom Laird Says:

    I watch it with the sound down. Just for the tottie.

  82. breeks Says:

    round the twist. brilliant tv, that.

  83. indy Says:

    nick cave is australian. he’s alright.

  84. indy Says:

    flying doctors. victor charlie charlie calling mike sierra foxtrot! this is cooper’s crossing… etc

  85. breeks Says:

    i think you’ll find that amongst the sheilas and murderous roo’s that much about australia and its produce, human and otherwise, is ‘alright’.

  86. Tom Laird Says:

    I just telephoned The Queen. She says yer talkin out yer arse breeks. Her exact words. Chips are what you buy from the Chippy. Wrapped in paper and with vinegar on.

    Quod errat demonstrandum Jimmy as they say in Glasgow.

  87. Nick T Says:

    I’ve visited “Ramsey Street”.
    Wasn’t allowed to walk down it, just peeped in.

  88. Tom Laird Says:

    Don’t forget that irritating bloke wot was killed by a big flounder. He was an Oz as well.

  89. Napoleon Says:

    Breeks – Your lethal wildlife isn’t ‘alright’. Don’t you have more things down there that can kill you than anywhere else on the planet?

  90. Tom Laird Says:

    Back to R&J hats off to Richard for still giving her one. Stout fellow.

    How much would you take to give Judy a right old seeing to?

    Perhaps you are a bit finicky and wouldn’t consider getting in her bed for lss than £1000.

    Maybe you are Engurlish and in your thirties and would just be glad of a shag.

    Could it be you are Australian and Judy Finnegan is what an otherwise sane person would call a bowl of mashed potatoes.

    Personally I’d do it for the publicity and a packet of Monster Munch.

    Come on Lads. What price Judy?

  91. breeks Says:

    naps – they only attack small, xenophobic brits like yourself.

  92. breeks Says:

    the queen doesn’t eat chips. she’s german.

  93. Tom Laird Says:

    Do you mean chips or crisps. She was German but seeing the error of their ways the Royal Family Changed their name from Battenfuhrerfartenburgenpimmelkopfenscheissenblucher to Windsor in the sixties as a tribute to their much loved Carry On films.

  94. indy Says:

    Tom Laird: “What price Judy?”

    standard fee.

  95. Napoleon Says:

    Breeks – I’m not actually small. Does that mean I’ll be alright if I go to Australia?

  96. breeks Says:

    naps – small of mind, small of soul, small of cock, small of eye. any kind of small, really.

  97. ugeine Says:

    Round the Twist! Fuck, there’s a blast from the past. I loved that show like a surrogate mother.

    Add the Avalanches onto the list of good ozzies who call crisps something wrong. They’re called crisps because they’re fried until they crisp, see?

  98. Swineshead Says:

    Tom – for fuck’s sake…

    ‘How much would you take to give Judy a right old seeing to?’

    …is not really the angle we’re coming from.

    Could you rethink your position, take those deep breaths I mentioned yesterday, then fuck off?

  99. Tom Laird Says:

    Indy- Stout Fellow

    Ugeine- Stout Fellow

    Breeks- Still wrong

  100. Napoleon Says:

    Breeks – Small of cock, eh? How unbelievably original. So … shall we now turn to the subject of your cavernous vagina?

  101. breeks Says:

    naps, absolutely. roszses will, should she ever return to the WWM shores, gladly share with you the concept of a widey.

    i pride myself on my originality. piss off.

  102. Tom Laird Says:

    The angle is completely your choice.

    I’m not fussed.

    As the owner/moderator you are within your right to censor/bar me.

    It’s still a free country. Isn’t it?

    Don’t get the breath thing.

  103. Swineshead Says:

    Nappers – you took it as read she was talking about winkys. I’m not sure she was.

    Tom – so far your humour today has run thus:
    People from Africa have funny names compared to us folk.
    Judy Finnegan is not a young woman.

    These have not been satisfying in any way.

  104. Napoleon Says:

    Breeks – I’m afraid to tell you it’s a rather misplaced pride. Piss off y’self.

  105. breeks Says:

    i will not piss off.

    you piss off.

  106. Tom Laird Says:

    PS. My position on Judy hasn’t changed.

    Ooh er

  107. Swineshead Says:

    Tom – I’m just saying that if you want to be contentious and say things that are borderline offensive then it helps to spend five minutes thinking about them before typing. Are you Tombstone, reborn?

  108. Swineshead Says:

    I see Nappers and Breeks are having a piss-off. The saucy beggars.

  109. breeks Says:

    we need mel here to contribute boiled piss, to make it a threesome.

  110. Napoleon Says:

    She’s my enemy today, I see.

    And she can piss right off.

  111. ugeine Says:

    Don’t Australians also think that been really good at cricket is important?

  112. Tom Laird Says:

    I think you will find they find our names equally funny.

    I had no idea you were quite so puritanical. I will however respect your wishes. A good day to you. And all the best with your highly amusing and well written blog.

    xxx

  113. ugeine Says:

    And rugby.

  114. breeks Says:

    to the corner, ugeine, for crimes against spelling.

    naps – let’s cut the foreplay. upstairs?

  115. Swineshead Says:

    ugeine – it’s ‘BEING’. Not ‘been’. ‘BEING’!

    Australians are alright – I live with one and she’s managed to Anglicise her accent to the point I don’t get a splitting headache every time she speaks.

  116. Tom Laird Says:

    And come off it Swines. To be honest I feel you are bending over backwards to be offended.

    But no matter.

  117. ugeine Says:

    Breeks & SH: You’re talking to somebody who can’t even spell ‘Eugene’ correctly. Think it’s a lost cause, don’t yourself?

    And I have nothing against Australians (In fact I still need to thank you all for Round the Twist), I just don’t see eye to eye with cricket and rugby. Come on, they’re both fairly odd as sports go.

  118. Napoleon Says:

    Breeks – Fuck it, I’m in …

  119. ugeine Says:

    ‘Think it’s a lost cause, don’t yourself?’

    Yes, don’t yourself. I speak Pigin English.

  120. indy Says:

    i had an australian flat mate for a while and he was a complete t**t. it was all about smoking pot, talking about surfing and playing digeridoo outside camden. he lived off his south african hippie girlfriend, who somehow managed to get them some cash from some charity work. and yes, they were vegan.

    i’ve tried to stay away from this story but i felt that it was time to bring on the heavy artillery.

  121. breeks Says:

    indy – his girlfriend deserved being sponged off for being south african.

    cricket is a beautiful sport.

    naps – stop referring to me as ‘it’ and we have a deal.

  122. Swineshead Says:

    Tom Laird – I haven’t asked you to leave (the ‘fuck off’ wasn’t meant to be taken literally) but just think we can avoid the blunt sexism and xenophobia. Doesn’t reflect well.

  123. Napoleon Says:

    Used to have a thing about Aussie girls, but since I met Ms DINLT (a dusky Latina), have not experienced the delights of oz girls.
    Cricket is a beautiful game except for 20/20.

  125. Swineshead Says:

    ‘dusky latina’?!

    *puts DINLT on some kind of list*

    *puts everyone on a list*

  126. ugeine Says:

    I don’t like cricket, oh, no.

    Really, can’t stand it, ooohohoh.

  127. ugeine Says:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7928996.stm

    Absolutely brilliant investigative journalism.

  128. Swineshead Says:

    Cricket’s boring as hell.

  129. Swineshead Says:

    Twitter message:

    Stan Collymore is now following you on Twitter.

    Is that a warning from the government?

  130. breeks Says:

    it would’ve been the ‘swine’ part of your name that drew him in.

  131. ugeine Says:

    Is that for WMM? WWM has famous fans! Must be all the conversations we have about food.

  132. Swineshead Says:

    He’s crazy for livestock, old Colly.

    Look at Ugeine getting all excited about celebs (if you can call a late-night Setanta presenter a celeb and not piss your pants laughing)

  133. breeks Says:

    ittle bittle ugeine. every blog or messageboard has one.

  134. ugeine Says:

    *screams*

    He’s my favourite ever person to be used in a Dennis Pennis putdown.

    DP: Hey Tom, Tom, did you enjoy playing Forrest last year?

    Tom Cruise: Yeah

    DP: Do you’ll think they’ll miss Stan Collymore’s electric pace up front? Don’t know why they sold him…

  135. ugeine Says:

    Hang on Breeks, you comment on celebrities much more then me.

  136. breeks Says:

    ugeine – yeah. ones i know. yeah. or that i don’t know.

  137. Swineshead Says:

    Hanks or Cruise?

  138. ugeine Says:

    By the way, that BBC link is also about 65% of Dave’s lastest blog.

  139. ugeine Says:

    Sorry, Hanks, my mistake.

  140. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    Stan Collymore. Good player, but did not fulfil his full potential. Nonetheless he was very useful especially at Liverpool.

  141. Napoleon Says:

    Ugeine – Is it? Excellent stuff. Again, that saves me the bother of reading myopiniononstuff.

  142. ugeine Says:

    It’s a brilliant read, Napoleon, I visit every day. It’s called ‘my opinion on stuff’ and he hasn’t offered a single opinion on anything yet.

  143. Napoleon Says:

    I’ll confess I’ve looked at it from time to time. It bears a remarkable resemblance to imtheotherdave and daveselectricblanket.

  144. breeks Says:

    dave. name of champions. champions of what, though.

    ideas?

  145. Do I Not Like That! Says:

    Hmmm..I never get any comments on my blog.

  146. Nick T Says:

    They also call trousers “pants”

    I’m editing a doc about Milgrams experiment. Humans are stupid FACT

  147. ugeine Says:

    Name a character from a movie please. Nothing too unusual.

  148. Nick T Says:

    Ug- Paul Varjack from Breakfast at Tiffanys

  149. ugeine Says:

    Bingo. Cheers Nick.

  150. Nick T Says:

    I got a comment on my blog yesterday.
    Thanks Mel.

    Where is Mel?

  151. ugeine Says:

    *kicks lumpy bin sack out of view*

  152. ugeine Says:

    Some people are so far behind they think they’re leading the race.

  153. Mr H Says:

    A bit disappointing in here today. I came looking for my usual dose of xenophobia, sexism, sexual innuendo and bad jokes, and what do I find. Nothing of interest. You ought to be ashamed.

    Me, I’m off to contact Living TV with my latest brilliant television concept which involves Michael Jackson adopting Brave Jades kiddies post death. It’s a winner, I tell you, a winner.

    Walks off humming theme tune to series, Jackos “PYT (Pretty Young Thing”.

  154. ugeine Says:

    Aren’t my musings enough for you?

  155. ugeine Says:

    It’s nice to be important, but it’s even more important to be nice.

  156. Mr H Says:

    ugeine – I assumed you’d be sent off on a training course at one of these companies that produce motivational posters.

    You know – “Determination – It is the size of one’s will which determines success.” That kind of keech.

  157. myopiniononstuff Says:

    Ugeine, you poisonous little bastard, have you not noticed the ‘(and nonsense)’ part of my blog banner?

    Just leave me be, okay? It keeps me mildly amused and harms nobody at all.

  158. breeks Says:

    omg. it’s, like, barren in here.

  159. Relliott Says:

    I’ve caught it once or twice, when I’ve had seven thousand gatecrashers round. Shame to see it go, especially the pensioner trampling. And some of those dustbin interiors were simply stunning!
