Big Brother posts worst ratings start ever →
Come on guys - who is surprised at this? It’s never been interesting except for maybe the first season (just because no one knew what was coming). I do love this comparison though: of 1.511 million viewers for this year’s season premierem vs the 1.548 million for last year’s.

A rise in self-explosion
If something bursts into flame with no external action, it’s called self combustion. What’s the equivalent for when objects explode with no external action? Whatever it is, adland in the UK is suffering an influx of it lately it seems - there’s been the bottle of Bacardi, and the fruit on a Tropicania ad, plus a couple more I can’t think of the products advertised (not to...
Creative vs media..
.. on your marks, get set… go! In any trade rag each week there’s the usual “so-and-so has won this account” story. Let’s say the figure for the advertiser in the article is £10million. If the account win is a creative one, give or take some things like external post-production or TVC directors fees, that £10million is revenue for the creative agency. If the...
