I thought ITV did very well considering the circumstances and BBC tried to turn the whole thing into 'BBC's BIG PARTY STUFF THE QUEEN LEAVE HER TO ITV' sort of thing.
And that blue peter / cbbc concert was a right shambles. Not only was it presented by those pathetic little puppets from The Saturday Show, but the whole live thing went wrong and nobody was on time with 5 second gaps before the presenters responded. (for example the world famous... umm. whats her name... that one on "50/50" )
The poor excuse for presenters (the most patronising, childish, 'i try and be a child to make kids relate to me' presenters.) I am, quite frankly, sick of seeing presenters act like children to help us relate to them.
Anywho. There is only one good presenter on Blue Peter and that is Simon, mainly because he has the balance between being cool and child like, and being mature. Matt is far too mature and shouldn't be allowed near children, he should stay near his stamp collection. Liz is waaayyy too boring and tries to be like an eighties BP presenter with a miniskirt and her cheesy fake smile. Konnie just gets on my nerves, BP needs presenters that can speak properly (Think about it... Konnie F.. sorry Huq and her Drrrooooonnnnne, Katie Hilla nd her R / W's...). The CBBC bit was ever so slightly better but still the presenters (Barney + Jake, who are usually really good in the studio) were also treating the kids like babies.
To even it out though, cITV presenters can be just as bad and generally, whilst in the studio, CBBC presenters are much calmer cand better, because the cITV ones try and be too cool and keep saying 'WICKED' and 'SORTED' and I want to shout "SHUT UP YOU ARE ADULTS ACT BL**DY MATURE FOR ONCE."
Anyway thats my ranting done.
