HOORAY! Help! My Dog's as Fat as Me, BBC3, 8.30pm

Help! My Dog's as Fat as MeWe've got to hand it to BBC3 right now; they've got an eye for what works. After everyone on the messageboard went nuts for Fat Men Can't Hunt and we decided that Dog Borstal might just be our favourite non-terrestrial pre-watershed programme right now, they appear to have spliced some ideas from each together to come up with the brilliantly titled Help! My Dog's as Fat as Me.

Leaving possible problems with the format aside (what do you do if your dog's a bit porky but you keep quite a trim figure yourself?), this sounds like reality-doco gold: eight obese owners with similarly pampered pooches compete with each other, Fat Club-style, to see who can lose the most weight over an eight-week period. The winner stands to receive the coveted Fat Dog Champion 2007 award. We bet that'd look nice on the mantlepiece, to misquote the Arctic Monkeys.

One slight downside: the presenter is shame vortex Julian Bennett, of Queer Eye UK and The Jules and Lulu Show "fame", but perhaps he's lining up to compete in the sequel: Eek! My Dog's as Gay as Me? That could be interesting too...

About Us

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.
