EH?! Hot Tub Ranking, Five, 11.30pm We've heard some bizarre pitches for television shows in our time, but we truly take our hats off to the people behind this one: five apparently "beautiful" women try to convince a panel of men that they are the best looking of the bunch. It's sort of a combination of Your Face Or Mine, Blind Date, and Miss World, with a hot tub thrown in for cheap thrills good measure. Think of it as being like watching those late night parties in the back garden in Big Brother. but without any of the bitter recriminations the following morning. We're not entirely sure if this is the worst possible example of filler and wallpaper television, or whether it's actually a scathing send-up of modern society's obsession with beauty and outward appearances, and hence genius. Nope. Seriously, we've not got a clue. All we know is that with a title like that it deserves an award of some kind. And look, we made it through the entire preview without pointing out that "ranking" sounds a bit like "wanking" if said with a comedy Japanese accent...damn.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
