Re: Dancing On Ice

I honestly like Holly and Phil and have no problem with them at all.

Due to the numerous ad breaks I presume they have to be there to present again when the show restarts. 

When you think it was a 2 hr show with 6 couples skating to a 3 minute routine...that's a hell of a lot of time to fill...

I like the show so will stick with it...making numerous cups of tea when those damn ads are on....Evil

It's no different to ITV  presenting football...(or any sport) Any chance they get and they stop for ads!!

Re: Dancing On Ice

Maybe I've been watching less commercial TV and more viewing streaming stuff that have no breaks so notice the breaks a lot more. Way too much like North American TV these days and none of the ads are actually memorable. 

 

I now stop listening to the half-time expert analysis on the football as between the gambling and alchohol ads, the pundits aren't that intelligent. Best get used to ITV football presentations when the World Cup comes round.

You may be right @jonsie but it seemed a lot less show and more ads - one after each couple danced. And the show was only 1 hout and 55 minutes so a lot more ads before the start of the next show, which I'm watching..

I agree @jonsie but for me watching a big match I love the reaction at the end when the team wins. You never see that with ITV. Whistle blows, and virtually straight to ads...

Same with F1 on Ch 4. As soon as the chequered flag is waved they pop off for a quick ad break so you don't see the immediate driver/team reaction. It's not long, but that sort of thing spoils it for me....

Sky resist the urge to do that.

All the commercial channels are pretty much the same. ITV is the worst followed by Channel 5. But they all show at least 12 minutes of ads in an 'hour' show with ad breaks before and after the show. Like I said before programmes between the ads.

 

Thank God for the BBC. At least you can watch a programme from start to finish with no interruptions.

 

I agree with @sheepdog it's definitely becoming like American TV and the ads are just as unmemorable.

Re: Dancing On Ice

Of course the answer would be to watch it on Catch up. However, you wouldn't be able to vote...Catch 22 really..

Re: Dancing On Ice

What a load of balderdash. The voting is exactly the same as Strictly.

Head judge has final vote.

I would take Chris Deans vote (as a skater) over the other two judges any day of the week. ...

Add to that, Lemar shouldn't have been there...Had Cheryl been in the dance off then Candice would still be in the show..
