Channel 4 has axed T4’s flagship music show Popworld after six and a half years. Popworld – which helped launch the careers of Simon Amstell and Miquita Oliver – will end in July, according to today’s Daily Mirror.
However, Channel 4, which has a minority stake in Popworld Ltd, said it was committed to the brand and would try and develop it elsewhere.
A Channel 4 spokesman said: “Channel 4 has decided not to recommission Popworld, T4’s flagship music show for the last six years.
“The show has performed very successfully over this period but we are keen to continue to use our T4 platform as a launch pad for new music formats that reflect our audience’s tastes and the way in which they consume music.”
so thats NO pop music shows left on TV.
I’m blaming this on bands like hard-fi and the twang. the show was trying to be too indie.the problem is that bands like the twang/hard-fi arent indie, they are dogshit of the highest order. keep things pop. why the fuck would you get nicky wire on to do something on the show when you could be subtly ripping the piss out of lemar or gwen stefani?
jo whiley and the twang need to pay for this NOW! OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!
