So, according to Reuters, Live Earth draws lackluster TV ratings
……..BBC One coverage of the Live Earth climax at London’s Wembley Stadium, leading up to Madonna’s eagerly awaited finale, averaged 3.1 million viewers, compared with 11.4 million for the Diana tribute
Frankly I’m surprised they even got 3 million viewers. I mean, who really wants to watch another benefit/awareness gig? Even if I had been desperate to see the artists perform, the “message” just turns me off.
I cant be the only person that is fed up of over-paid ageing millionaires telling me I should be doing this or that for the sake of the planet. Stop wasting money putting on concerts that few people want to see and just donate some of your millions already!
And dont get me started on the BBC’s Saving Planet Earth, a whole week of celebs trying various heart-string-tugging techniques to part us from our cash. If the BBC put the money they spent making the programmes into donations to the campaign, it would be money well spent in my view. Though I dont know what business they have taking my licence fee and using it to make programmes telling me to donate more money to their chosen causes.
Dont get me wrong, I do care about stuff, I have DD’s set up to my chosen charities and I do my bit around the house, saving water, composting, low energy bulbs, that sor of thing.
I’m just sick of sick of the lot of ’em, telling me I need to do more!
