Emmerdale Soapstars

(November 2001)

I wonder how many people were confused by the Soapstars opening titles after the Daz sponsor thingy? I know I was, and I expected it! Soapstars should really have been a seperate programme, it didn't work too well.

Oh, the family were ok, I liked the woman but the rest weren't that special.

So was Soapstars sponsored by Daz tonight then? I hope Daz knew about that!

Daz didn't sponser Soapstars last night, but it did sponser Emmerdale, 'the great British soap'.

Just remind me again how many British soaps there are (television and the cleaning kind).

Notice that DAZ only sponsored the advert break in the middle of the Emmerdale episode, as well as the Soapstars start and end.

The other breaks within the Soapstars part were sponsor less.

Going off at a tangent, I can't understand why somebody hasn't sponsored the current series of WWTBAM. Surely they'd be jumping at the chance?

and more importantly Carol's hair !! has she got hair extensions in or something ?  Is she trying to be Cher or what ?


Err, no I don't think so. Wink Carol's a great presenter. She shouldn't waste her money on plastic surgery like 'the doll' Cher has done over the years.

That's how Carol's hair SHOULD look! It looked much better like that all those years ago Smile

Oh, and when you say doing a 'CiTV', do you mean that [Annoyed] STUPID and ANNOYING [/Annoyed] thing they do at the end, where they talk over the end titles so you miss most of them? (Ah, good to get the outta me system Smile )

'Doing a CITV' - This is when the end credits are shown on the screen in the background on the screen, but can't be seen at all.

They are usually cut off half way through anyway for a promo, 'big' competition, end of CITV titles etc.

Plus on SM:TV Live you don't get to see the credits of MPAA at all!

By the way, CITV are now 'finishing' at their side of the 5pm advert break.
And an 'ident' introduces Night and Day, The People Versus used to just 'come straight on', after CITV's post-advert break bit

Yeah, I think it was used when Crossroads was on during that time. Carlton wanted to get all the CITV viewers to stay on and watch it. Didn't work coz it got timeshifted due to no viewers anyway!
