Did anyone watch Richard Osman’s World Cup of the Decade last night?
It wasn’t as good as it could have been and had a very strange flat feel.
The match ups in the ‘matches’ were very random and there was an element of Channel 4 bias (I’m not sure Derry Girls is in the top few programmes of the year really),and recency bias, where it was very heavilly weighted to the last few years.
Viewers thought the same as it rated way below average.
Agreed. There was also a lot of stuff in it that was factually incorrect. Such as the loss of Woolworths which it said was defunct in 2015. Whilst it's true the website closed then, it was a separate retailer not affiliated to the stores. The stores closed last decade in 2009 and that was what they were referring to with images of shutters coming down on the stores.
I'm hoping for more from Jimmy Carr's Big Fat Quiz of the Decade.
