This Caroline Aherne narrated series was an unlikely hit for C4 in spring and, no less importantly, cheap to make. So a return visit to the front rooms of Britain was probably inevitable; ‘Gogglebox’ spies on 16 households as they watch the past week’s telly and deconstruct it in occasionally incisive, occasionally banal fashion.
Expect to see B&B owners Steph and Dom, OAPs Leon and June and hairdressers Stephen and Chris back among the armchair critics, while ‘The Great British Bake-Off’, ‘The X Factor’ and – flying the flag for the mother channel – ‘Educating Yorkshire’ will be among the shows under discussion. Expect the inevitably inane to nestle alongside the oddly compelling over the next 13 weeks. It’ll be like ‘Newsnight Review’ never left our screens.
