Jedward and Brian do us proud on BB

GREAT to see that the Irish are yet again a big hit on Big Brother. With Brian Dowling as presenter and Jedward as part of the motley crew who are holed up in the house, Channel 5 has tripled its 2010 ratings.

And it also means that Channel 5 has beaten Channel 4's share of the audience on five of the six nights since it began.

It seems reality television is not dead and gone, which is a good thing for TV3 here, which has a great range of reality shows coming up this autumn, including the brilliantly titled Tallaghtfornia.

Watch out Jersey Shore!
