What's the worst repeated show ever?

For me it's got to be The Osbounbes on MTV.

The Simpsons.  Sky and BBC swamp their schedules with the Simpsons, to the point where I can't be arsed watching it anymore.

The Simpson's on Sky.I must have seen 'You only move twice' more than twelve times.One of them was on Christmas day when the Simpsons have quite a good amount of Christmas Specials.

Oh and Big Brother.Come to think I about I hate all of Big Brother.Who agree's with me..?

You are garunteed to see every episode of every MTV show 42,000 times before the next week's episode, really gets annoying (especially when it's all that's on)

Big Brother is horrible. Family Guy slammed them once when Lois is sick of Peter's jealousy & they see a marriage counselor, who suggests to tape the every day happenings to find what's wrong & Peter says "Hey, it'll be just like big Brother...... except somebody'll be watching"

I also only watch re-runs of shows/ episodes I like.

I agree, I rarely watch it anymore unless they are showing new episodes, it is on far too much.

Every show on every channel on every Australian cable/satellite TV network. Waste of time and money, all of them.

I would hardly say 5 nights a week was swamping their schedule. It's the fact that they show the same 3 or 4 seasons over and over (maybe they're not allowed to show earlier ones...?)

They keep changing the right to the serieses.

Sky has the right to S2-6 and 11 or 12+
BBC has 7-10 or 11
Fuck knows who has the right to series 1.

But Fred is right. BBC show 5 episodes a week. Sky show about 17 episodes a week. 22 episodes of the Simpsons a week is way too much. I don't even think there are that many soap episodes a week. Actually come to think of it...  roll eyes

Watching Jackass repeats isn't funny any more. Same with Trigger Happy TV, although I think Dom Joly stopped the channels showing it too often because he knew it would get annoying after a while. The stunts just aren't funny when you know what's going to happen.

I still watch Simpsons on BBC2. I wish they's show more new eps. C4 will show loads of new eps when they start showing it. But they may edit it so much.

The Simpsons reruns should be run in a staggered order as follows:

1st first season episode, then 1st second season ep, etc. all the way up. Then the second episode of each season. Then continue. When you run out of one season, just leave that one out of rotation. When all (just under) 300 episodes air, start over.

You guys are lucky.  FOX 55 (worst affiliate in the state) does not show any episodes of The Simpsons except for the new ones.  I used to get it off Green Bay 11 times a week about 3 years ago before our cable company switched to this one.

Also, Full House gets shown way too much.

Blind Date repeats are terrible too. Why do they show the same episode everyweek? Man picks girl via corny lines. Go on date. Come back and insult each other. Repeat with genders reversed  wink

That must be Pokemon on FOX KIDS. It's like first ep 01, then ep 02, then ep 03, then ep 04, and then ep 01 again.

There is this commercial channel here, and they must have repeated The Simpsons over 16 times.

Between them Sky and BBC show around 20 episodes a week.  I'd call that swamping their schedule.

Robot Wars on BBC2 is terrible and gets repeated the same night, then again the following day on BBC Choice - then you get the earlier series rerun on a daily basis.  I'm thinking cheap show with great merchandising potential.

But if you don't have Sky then you're not swamped. Just think yourself lucky!

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade has been on 3 times in the past week, twice on Sci Fi.  I love the movie, but I mean, come on now, people . . .

And what's with Sci Fi showing Braveheart?

Cuz Braveheart's all science-fictiony and stuff. Remember that scene when he flies the spaceship and uses it's photon beams to attack the English castle? I admit, it's been a while since I saw Braveheart last, but...still...

Just felt that I should say Braveheart is one of the top 5 movies ever made, it should be showed on every channel possible.

"Armageddon" 3 times within 2 months, on the same channel, as a "movie of the evening" (no early afternoon-repeats). What are they trying to prove? Make us believe it's a good movie? Not in this lifetime.
