That relationship goes back to the likes of Faking It and Wife Swap aswell. There has certainly been unease at C4 favouring certain indies lately - not sure what else Expectation have done though.
The Tez O'Clock Show, The Mo Gilligan show, The Big Narstie Show, The Rob Rinder Verdict and perhaps worst of all the Alternative Election which was of course cruelly taken away from Zeppotron and made 10 times worse.
The discontent is justified because these shows are by and large awful. And none of them have rated. And yet they continue to get comedy ent commissions, just last week they got a Mo Gilligan Faceparty based show away. It won't be good, it won't rate, we already know that, so why has it been commissioned?
You wouldn't constantly hire a bad plumber fix the same leaking pipe so why are C4 constantly hiring Expectation to make bad comedy entertainment?
Score and Jonwo gave kudos
