Of course I had planned to come up with something witty and brilliant to do the book justice, but I've been stuck to the sofa with a sick child all weekend and my brain is not my friend right now. So, having spent about 36 of the past 48 hours watching mind numbing, irritating children's TV I thought I'd share with you the ones that reduce me to a weeping, snivelling heap when they come on the screen. A 'NOOOO, I JUST CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE!!' level of despair at their annoyingness.
I used to be ahead of the game and watch out for the offenders on the Sky+ remote - (Dora up next? Adios Nick Jr), but since the 6 year old started reading this has proved more and more difficult. Damn her!

So here it is - Kate Takes 5 Most Annoying Kids TV Programmes Listography:
1. Hannah Montana.
Maybe it's the music, maybe it's because she looks like a troll crossed with a hamster, maybe it's the fact that she needs three names (Hanna Montana is in fact Miley Cyrus, who is in fact Destiny Hope Cyrus....Really? Was that not 'showbiz' enough for her? Anyway - she brings me out in a rash. Banned.
Thank God this seems to have disappeared from our screens. This was just downright creepy.
Not one likable character in the whole show. Then there's the fact that there's the token black person, the token physically disabled person, the token idiot....(Oh hang on a minute, they're all idiots). I mean, it's the 21st Century - aren't we past all that yet? And don't get me started on that teacher.
4. Big Cook Little Cook.
Aka: Big Cock Little Cock
I would rather listen to a toddlers 8 hour temper tantrum whilst being fed raw eggs than have to sit through 10 minutes of this drivel.
5. The Suite Life of Zac and Cody
See what they did there? 'Suite' as in hotel suite because guess what? They live in a hotel!! Brilliant. The rest of the show is just as good as that. Don't miss it. Oh and Zac and Cody look like they need a kick up the arse and a haircut. Painful.
So that's it. Sorry to lovely Lisa for this vitriol. If anyone else wants to join in the love and be in with the chance of winning the fabulous Listography book then just (i) add your entry to the linky below and (ii) click on my brand new 'Subscribe by email' at the top of the page.
