Ben Elton's Chart Throb
I watch the X-Factor every year. It's great TV. Mind you, it is not a music progam! What they are good at is not making music, its about making great TV.
Now after these words of wisdom, I would highly recommend Ben Elton's last novel called Chart Throb. After reading it you'll enjoy watching the X-Factor or even American Idol even more, cause it emphasises what makes these programs great, how the judges make fun of the freaks, how they talk up the contestants until they believe all the hype they tell them and then they cut them down again making them look silly in front of millions of people.
Shite music. Great tv.
