Oh, for fuck's sake.

Dear Horne & Corden, YOU ARE NOT MITCHELL & WEBB. Get over it.

Horne & Corden must've benefitted from people tuning in who otherwise wouldn't just to see quite how bad it was.

What a strange decision. And this from the beeb, which usually nurtures comedy. (Though possibly a little too far in the case of 'My Family'.)

To be fair, 'Not Going Out' has been a bit rubbish this series and probably has reached it's sell-by date. The only really funny bits have been all the ones that were stolen from either Lee Mack or Tim Vine's stand-up routines.

I've never even bothered with Horne & Corden, because I know I'm not the target audience, but after the success of 'Gavin & Stacey' surely they are considered to be 'big names' in a way that (much as I love him) Lee Mack and Tim Vine aren't.

There's only so many fat and gay jokes you can have before it gets boring. The repetition of a joke or punchline only really works for Stewart Lee (and sometimes Richard Herring). It certainly doesn't work with fat and gay jokes.

I don't get the Horne and Corden thing. I hear Gavin and Stacy was hilarious. I guess I'm just not the target demographic. Must be too old and fuddy.
