Heh, I couldn't be happier(!)

It is a dumb name for a tv channel though.

Dave will be crammed with the very best in quirky quiz shows, cult comedies and cutting-edge entertainment. From the full-throttle fun of Top Gear to the worldly wisecracks of QI and the pointed barbs of Have I Got News For You - it's like we left the witty tap running and forgot to turn it off.

Ow.

Let me just state for the record, I don't relish being crammed full of anything, thank you very much.

I think it's a bizarre idea - at least they picked a great name though :-)

It's a top name... the best, in fact! But as I just said to Steph, it's not really a great name for a television channel.

In the film Weird Science, wasn't there a advertisement for a channel called DaveTV?

I am ashamed to say I have never seen Weird Science.

I am shocked and astonished to hear you admit that. I cannot believe that you haven't seen one of the best films of the 80's!!

I think it's really silly.

I have to agree with you. I mean, in the name of Marketing, what on earth with the name "Dave" give to the channel? It doesn't really say anything!

What was wrong with G2? My understanding was that it meant UK Gold 2, which pretty much fits in with their current programming.

I agree with Dave (your one, that is), it is a wonderful name... just not for a television channel!!

If they were changing the programming then I could understand a name changhe, even if it is a bizarre change, but as they don't seem to be changing anything it seems a bit bizarre. Advertising on the other UKTV channels would have been just as useful instead!!
Enjoy you fame! :-)

"I'm going to watch Dave".

It just sounds wrong!
