It's not as dead as Jetix, to be fair.

The difference being that it's not them trying to revitalise what it once had using the dead corpse of the "brand", instead simply letting it pass by like dust.

I'm not a fan of BBC Three's output, mainly because it seems to only be attracting that ITV2 audience and ONLY promoting those shows like Drag Race, Glow Up and Angels of the North. I know BBC Three has other programming which males like but I can't see the value of having a brand only attract a certain audience when that male audience isn't going to stick around for programming that isn't for them.

I sort of worry that this is all that the BBC can be bothered to other as it's youth brand and the youth programming that are for that audience are on different BBC networks which attract a different audience compared to BBC Three, therefore cluttering the channels with a mish-mashed programming remit.

Oh that's funny. "Not even a real channel" on their Twitter page. As if being self-aware will bring more relevance to their dying brand like "HEY GUYS REMEMBER US WE'RE NOT DEAD PLEASE COME BACK!


Fleabag, This Country, People Just Do Nothing, Man Like Mobeen, Normal People, Drag Race....to name a few. A pretty decent slate for a "dying brand". Especially if you hold it up against E4 & ITV2 if they've considered to be thriving.

I had to laugh at the idea of Ru Paul’s Drag Race not appealing to men. I would suggest it’s most loyal audience is gay men.

But yes in that list JCB mentions, it could be argued only two are particularly female skewing.

This Country and Fleabag also both have BAFTA’s.

I know BBC Three has produced successful programming, I'm not disputing that in the slightest. You could simply just say it's not for me, even if I'm within that demographic. I personally like Fleabag and This Country as those shows are the most popular, but while those are hand picked high-budget and awarded examples, I can't see any other reason to watch anything else that BBC Three has created in the past 4 years because there's no incentive to.

The only reason I really watch those shows is because I've heard people talking about them and how they've won awards, in fact Normal People was potentially the reason BBC took note of how popular the brand was and mentioned the idea of bringing it back on TV. I can't see myself watching "Why I'm Fat: The Naked Truth" or "Deep in Vogue" because those shows aren't exactly for me, but I'm not saying BBC Three is unsuccessful, i'm saying it's because they're not exactly creating a variety of comedies, dramas and documentaries that interest me, a male who is interested in the BBC and wish there was more programming for people like me, nor are they heavily promoting them in the first place, especially as again, Drag Race and Glow Up, while being VERY POPULAR programming and is always promoted on the channel due to their success, I feel it's way too excessive. Shine a light on more obscurer BBC Three programming, especially as we're all locked indoors and would make the viewer more interested to discover more.

So your complaint isn’t really that there is nothing for you on BBC Three, it’s that not every programme on BBC Three is made for you apart from the ones you do like.

Trump in Tweets will be on BBC Two this Sunday at 10 pm. Was there BBC Three on BBC Two since BBC One launched Three Time?
