Telebasura – the state of Spanish TV

This article from the Times nicely sums up something Marina and I are oft complaining about in the podcasts – the dreadful state of Spanish TV, and its increasing reliance on Telebasura (TV-rubbish).

“- Antena 3 Televisión, which produces two of the most popular trash TV programmes, recorded profits of €54.3 million (£37 million) in the first quarter of this year — a rise of 42 per cent from the same period last year
– ….. telebasura shows go a long way to capturing audience share — crucial to attracting advertisers”

Unfortunately, if trash is this profitable, they’re going to keep making it!
