TOTP Less Popular Than Thought July 26, 2006

Posted by alexd in Media, Music.

“NO REALLY!!!” you exclaim in unison.

“No, really,” I reply. Yes a Yahoo!music poll discovered this week. Fuck it lets qoute the blasted story:

Later… With Jools Holland was favourite among those polled, earning itself 32% of the overall vote. TOTP came second with 29%.

The all-time poll saw The Old Grey Whistle Test attract the favour of 12% of those polled, while the equally dead The Tube was the favourite of five per cent of those that voted.

Popworld only got four per cent, suggesting that most of those that voted were either a) old or b) Friday-night beer monsters unable to rise in time for Alex and Alexa.

Songs Of Praise earned five per cent of the vote. Laugh out loud?

Yahoo! Music’s editor, Gareth Bellamy, commented:

“We’re really surprised by the outcome of this poll. We were sure that Top of the Pops would be seen as the favourite music programme of all time despite its recent axing.”

Apparently Popworld’s presenters are actually all over each other offset. But honestly; how can TOTP rival this.
