There is absolutely no point to this copy - and its just fucking hilarious!
SINCE its launch in March 1997, Channel 5 has carved a name for itself in high- quality US drama imports, accessible news and top-rated, on-demand TV shows.
Boasting more than 40 million viewers a month, the channel is the UK home to the world’s most
popular TV show of all time, CSI (Crime Scene Investigation), watched by more than two billion people worldwide.
And Channel 5 bosses famously poached newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky from the BBC at the end of 2007, making her reportedly the highest-paid newsreader in Britain on £1million a year.
At the time, the 37-year- old reporter said the lure of working at the channel had been “too exciting to pass up”. Her enthusiasm attracted more than a million viewers for her debut broadcast on Channel 5 News.
Meanwhile, Channel 5’s award-winning children’s strand Milkshake! has also helped to mould future TV stars, such as The X Factor’s Konnie Huq, who started there before moving to Blue Peter.
Last year, Channel 5 was the first station to introduce British audiences to Golden Globe-nominated American cop series The Mentalist and US sci-fi drama Flash Forward.
It also outbid the BBC in a £300million race to win cult Australian soap Neighbours in 2008. It has shown Australia’s other award-winning soap, Home And Away, since 2001, after pitching successfully for the show against ITV.
Channel 5’s programming is unique in reaching such a broad range of audiences: Milkshake! for pre-teens, The Gadget Show and blockbuster movies for young adults, Home And Away and Neighbours for women and Europa League Football and cricket for male audiences.
"Channel 5’s programming is unique in reaching such a broad range of audiences" - wait, did it really state that??
