Old news...

I've been sorting and sifting through boxes of press clippings in an effort to cut down the ridiculous amount of space they take up. Rifling through a copy of The Stage from 2002 to find some words wot I wrote, I came across a retrospectively amusing headline:

Pop Idol can be as big as Blind Date

Which proved to be profound, of course, in terms of ratings, but I find it hard to believe that just a few short years ago the benchmark of televisual success was Blind Date. I look forward to discovering that Noel's House Party can be as big as The Generation Game, Coronation Street can be as big as Zoetrope and 2.4 Children can be as big as Hi-De-Hi as I move through my randomly-ordered back copies.
