The golden age of TV is right here, right now

Anyone who doubted that Big Brother represents the finest TV gold will have been silenced by the live task on last night's Celebrity Big Brother. The 10 Z-listers were ordered onto podia, where they had to place themselves in order of celebrity. Now, i hope you get cancer™ knows, from many long years working in this crazy business we call show, just how needy and insecure these types are. Talk about going for the jugular! Seeing them torn by the twin impulses to squirm in agony, or to rip each others' eyes out was just too delicious. But seeing "fake celeb" Chantelle Houghton kid her way into the bosom of her "real" celeb housemates, thus turning their own vanity on its head, was sublime. Haven't laughed so much in ages. Unmissable.
