Gogglebox premiered on the Lifestyle Channel last night and tonight it airs on TEN. The show about watching ordinary people watch television was interesting enough but there were few laugh out loud moments and they mainly came from the gay guys, Tom and Wayne. Wayne is fuelled by his never ending cocktail supply. Also I thought older working class couple, Lee and Keith, were good to as I felt they were authentic in what they were saying.
Out of all of TEN’s shows this is probably my least favourite at this stage. I’m A Celebrity – LOVE, Shark Tank – LOVE but this was a bit like broccoli, I could take it or leave it.
There was a mix of households, families and singles, and ages but not a lot of diversity only one family were from a non-english speaking background and they got little air time. Also there was a mix of socio-economic demographics.
To be fair it was the first episode and it was the first week they are filmed some people did feel like they were trying too hard. And yes they are all given the same thing to watch. They did cover all the channels except SBS and ABC, but it was mainly TEN and Foxtel shows. They were smart enough to kick off with My Kitchen Rules the highest rating show in the country now.
This could be a show to grow on me and will tune in again, I suspect if I forgot to record it I would not be too fussed either.
It is being shown on TEN each Thursday at 9pm. Let me know what you think of it.
