Awk­ward hosts, pedes­trian top­ics and a bor­ing set are just a few clues.

Somizi TV SO­CIAL-ME­DIA MO­MENT: and DJ Arch Ju­nior With 78 mil­lion votes cast, Idols SA had its big­gest sea­son in his­tory, and it was in no small part thanks to the ad­di­tion of the flam­boy­ant Somizi Mh­longo. Another pint­sized TV star who set Twit­ter ablaze was SA’s Got Ta­lent win­ner, three-year-old DJ Arch Ju­nior.

Our TV FAIL OF THE YEAR: Per­fect Wed­ding In a dis­turb­ing and of­fen­sive move, the pro­duc­ers of Mzansi Magic’s hit show, Our Per­fect Wed­ding, fea­tured a groom
