Kevin O’Sullivan has written engaging TV reviews for the Sunday Mirror for the past ten years, but clearly the powers that be have suffered a brain defect as they’ve parted ways. Is it down to cutbacks? Well, if it was then why would Trinity Mirror soon be launching a new cut-price national daily paper, provisionally entitled “New Day”? Priced at 20p, it’ll be aimed at those who bought the Independent’s low-priced spin-off, ‘i’, but in a world that’s turning to digital – and with The Independent stopping printing of its paper-based product, why would anyone launch a new print publication?
As Kevin said on The Wright Stuff last week, where he also gives his opinions on TV shows every Friday, “I want to go somewhere that’ll actually have some readers(!)” Meow! There’s clearly no love lost there about the Mirror, but the only times I’ve read it, for as long as I can remember, it’s been for Mr O’Sullivan’s contributions.
As well as being a regular contributor to Radio 5’s Afternoon Edition Television Club, plus reviewing the newspapers on Sky News’ Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes, from today, Kevin O’Sullivan has launched his new reviews website where he’ll continue his acerbic comments.
Just go to TVKev.co.uk and read his thoughts on new shows such It’s Not Rocket Science, and the continuing decline of Eastenders, plus much more including what’s TV Gold and what’s TV Dross. And you can also follow him on Twitter.
Of course, do also check out our TV reviews on here, which will be joined at 10pm by our thoughts on the first episode of BBC1’s new Tom Hiddleston drama, The Night Manager.
