TURN OFF YOUR BRAIN FOR “CRAP TV”

Carmen Alcayde and Jorge Javier Vázquez, presenters of Aqui hay Tomate – Photo Tele 5

Aqui Hay Tomate  has been chasing celebrities and getting the gossip for the past five years.
Telecinco has decided to scrap their afternoon ‘Prensa Rosa’ gossip programme ‘Aqui hay tomate’.
Introduced five years ago the programme lived on gossip and sent reporters across the country to put microphones and cameras in the faces of celebrities where ever they could – at the shops, at the airport, at the doors of their homes.

Presenter Jorge Javier Vázquez described on air the decision to stop the programme as ‘Isabel Pantoja’s most awaited for announcement’, in reference to the singer who has proved to be one of the programmes richest pickings.

Telecinco say that he and co-presenter Carmen Alcayde will now take a rest, and the last three programmes this week will be a compilation of the past five years. The programme has been afternoon leader in the ratings since 2002, but has seen a loss of market share over recent months as many consider the format to be now outdated.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE INCREASING NUMBER OF “GOSSIP PROGRAMMES” ON SPANISH TV?

DO YOU THINK THE FORMAT IS NOW OUT DATED?       POST YOUR COMMENTS, PLEASEEEEE!!!
