A whole new series
CELEBS! Katie and Peter: The Next Chapter, ITV2, 9.00pm
Upon reading this news story a few weeks ago, we felt that some equilibrium had been restored to the universe. After all, America has provided us with lots of great shows: Desperate Housewives, Lost, Ugly Betty, Veronica Mars, Heroes... we could go on listing them for hours. So it's only fair that we give them some of our best quality output: three series of Jordan and Peter. Score!
The three previous series (When Jordan Met Peter, Jordan and Peter Laid Bare and Jordan and Peter: Marriage and Mayhem) will be billed under the nice neat title of Katie + Peter on E! in the USA, so perhaps the slight change in naming for this one is an attempt to neaten up the franchise. Speaking from an anally retentive point of view, we approve of this measure.
This opening episode features our favourite celebrity offspring Harvey having an accident at home (which we assume is the infamous New Year accident), and Jordan/Katie discussing post-natal depression. Doesn't quite sound like the rollercoaster of whimsy that we were hoping for, but we'll take what we can get.

A serious guilty pleasure..I wish Effin’ E! would promote it more and re-run the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks out of it like everything else they air. I’m not able to “toothpick” mi eyeballs open to watch it @ 2AM.
I want to watch all 10 episodes of Laid Bare.
