The BBC has finally realised that Top of the Pops, in all its lip-synching goodness, has passed its sell by date. The 40 year-old pop music show is being moved from the BBC’s first channel to BBC2 on a Sunday evening. It is claimed this move is part of an effort to attract younger viewers to the channel. The shows ratings having been fairly poor of late and numerous revamps have done little to help its demise. With the myriad of cable channels offering music and CD:UK it is a wonder TOTP has any viewers left. This move is not amazing, what is amazing is that it has taken the BBC so long to realise that TOTP’s time has ended.
