Who in their right mind flaming cares???!!! The crappy programme isn't even British!!
MDR that is a pathetic reason - Neighbours isnt British, ER isnt British but these programmes have a huge following in the UK. People should give the show a chance and if they did it would be as huge as those series are.
I'm not a fan of Shortland Street as it is never shown on Granada anymore, but I would rather see Shortland Street at 5pm than You've Been Framed, as it a show which is getting old and stale and it isn't funny anymore. But though a Petition is a good idea, it won't work as it is rather obvious that ITV want a cheap filler which will bring in the ratings. I bet they'll put on the following...
You've Been Framed
Catchphrase (Daytime version)
Family Fortunes (Daytime Version)
The Planets Funniest Animals (The Most stupidest show ever and GMG North seem to like this show even though it is really sh*t)
ITV News, as it is rather likely that a War on Iraq would have started by the time that Crossroads is taken off at 5pm.
