Regional news programmes such as South Today [in my region] As Victor Lewis Smith put it they have news stories such as 'ten pence piece found stuck in phone box!' 'local man short changed in little chef!'.

Sports personality of the year. And the national lottery draws. These shows dont need to be long. Just show the award and the draws and thats all.

None of them, if people enjoy them. if I don't like something, I don't watch it.

Those stupid programmes following the bloody traffic police around. Just boring and the cameras never seem to be around when they pull people over for no reason.
The Apprentice. Could never see the appeal of that one. A show about a load of useless prats trying to become Alan Sugars new monkey is NOT entertainment in my eyes.
The One Show, sorry but that belongs in the 8am slot, not on an evening schedule.
The Walking Dead, not added anything original and just proves that the whole zombie thing has become a stale genre.
Anything made by Ricky Gervais.
Twenty Twelve. I'm sorry, but is this supposed to be funny??

The weather bulletins. I'm sick of them. Even when I go outside the weather is there, talk about overkill

Any programme that's contains some overblown media-created personality who then think they have some right to be rude, dismissive or down-right obnoxious to any memeber of the public who was unwise enough to get onto the programme and into their ego-driven firing lines. Some might say they had the choice not to go on; fair comment, it still does not give these over-paid, over-rated 'personalities' the right to mouth off the way they do

Reality TV Programmes...... Aghhhhhhhh!!!! I hate them... Big Brother (they tried to axe it, and Dirty Desmond revived in on Channel 5). I'm a celebrity get me out of here! I rather they left them there, without the cameras. X-Factor is just repeative now, as is Britain exploits the mentally challenged, or sorry Britains Got Talent? Oh and I hate soaps and I daytime TV is brain rotting dross!

I get very annoyed by these "fly on the wall" police documentaries. I suspect that many a young villain caught captured on film in a car chase is absolutely thrilled to see their exploits broadcast for all their mates to see. And how much police time is wasted on helping out the camera crews, conducting interviews with officers featured in the programme etc. - and this at a time when we're always being told about how strapped for resources our police forces are?

As I very rarely watch anything on TV and never listen to BBC radio as 99% usage of my TV is for watching my DVD boxsets/films, I would most like the TV licence fee to be axed.

There's a lively discussion about the licence fee going in within the politics forum. Suffice it to say I'm with others here in wanting the licence fee scrapped!

Agree scrap the TV Licence !, As for what shows to "Axe" problem now is far to many channels, and few good shows to fill the hours,
back when I was young (Another old git) TV was B & W just 2 Channels, but top shows, If you don't like whats on
Play a DVD !

in Australia we first had b/w TV in about 1959 and as I recall we had Licences.

The along came no licence and inane, annoying oft repeated within five minutes commercials. I sometimes wish we could back to licences and get rid of the b....y adverts. I'd glady pay for the privilege of watching a full programme within an hour time frame than lose time from the programme watching ads that often are insults to your intelligence.

bite your tongue, the walking dead is brilliant, not only does it have grusome guts and gore it also has the back stories about the people in the group, its action with follow up.
