Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

FOR years Fam­ily For­tunes pot­tered along nicely fea­tur­ing or­di­nary, run-of-the-mill id­iots say­ing daft things to Les Dennis.

They weren’t fa­mous peo­ple, they weren’t even re­lated to fa­mous peo­ple, and no­body thought any worse of the show for it.

I guar­an­tee not one viewer said to them­selves: “If only Ch­eryl Baker’s fam­ily were tak­ing on Trevor Nel­son’s fam­ily, this would be a much bet­ter show.”

But that’s what you have got tonight. Why? Only the twisted mind of a TV editor could ex­plain.

I asked 100 peo­ple if they would be watch­ing – guess how many said yes?
