Brand and Ross

Brand and Ross
"Sack the smug little overpaid twats", is one point of view. What's yours?

RE: Brand and Ross
I think they certainly are probably overpaid. I mean there are a lot funnier more talented people who probably get paid less. About sacking them, I found Brand ok at doing big-brother's big-mouth, in the sense that everyone else who does it is crap and boring/stupid in comparison.
But thats about it with brand for me and I was disappointed to say the least with his stand up. Oh, I did like that 'brand on the road' or whatever else it was thing. It was enjoyable, but he's way too overpaid. I'm not sure if he should be sacked. Am I right him and Ross did a prank call or something? I can't really judge it until I've heard how bad the "prank" or whatever it was, was.
Ross however, I certainly think he's overrated, but I enjoy his talk show, mostly because of the guests he gets on their not him. So if Ross is going to be sacked for a good reason, I think that we need a new talk-show host who gets the same caliber of guests.
If however whatever they did doesn't mean they deserve to be sacked, I still think they are way too overpaid and overrated.
I think they should be paid less for sure, well atleast Ross, I'm not sure how much Brand is paid. Thats what I think anyway.

Everything has gone way over the top. An apology is enough (I believe Ross has already sent flowers and called the people up).

Hey whats new the media's always over the top.
Apart from when they're under-emphasising the really important things of course.

RE: Brand and Ross
Public opinion seems to be polarised around the " old " who would have the pair sacked and the " young " who like " edgy " humour and can't see what the fuss is about.
Being old and crinkly myself, I have no time for either of them. I find them neither entertaining nor funny ( particularly Brand whose humour is so puerile it reminds me of infant scolchildren roaring with laughter at the mention of " poo ".)
I certainly see nothing funny in the stunt they pulled on Sachs.
My question is how old do you have to be not to be young in this scenario?
I suspect the " young " supporters of the 2 are a lot younger that Ross ( 47 ) and Brand ( 33 ).
And isn't " edgy " comedy just a license to get a cheap laugh out of ANY situation?

Well Brand has resigned and Ross is suspended for 3 months. I personally found the entire thing very funny and it just goes to show how things get over-exaggerated in the press. Andrew Sach's repeatedly said he accepted their apologies and that he wasn't out for revenge, and yet the newspapers kept going after them. It's despicable behaviour towards two hilarious comedians who made a mistake and apologised.

I think Jonathan Ross is funny for a talk-show host atleast. I do find him funny.
And I have found Brand Funny when he did 'BB's big mouth', and I found his program on the road, (that I saw atleast one episode of) a good program, and he was often funny in it.
However I do think Brand disappointed me greatly in his stand up. I have heard a lot funnier (in my opinion) other stand up comedians and I was expecting Brand to be really good at it.
And I'd say that even though Jonathan Ross is a really good talk show host in my opinion, I still think he gets too much money considering that I think there are a lot more talented and deserving people who probably get a lot less money.
And I do think both are overrated.
But this just what I think, just my opinion.
