It depends on the talent a couple of years ago SCD was the better program because it had exciting dancers and personalties I liked the show before but REALLY liked it that year. But it was against the worst X Factor in terms of standard ever. Now last year the X Factor stepped up because the singing talent was miles better and SCD got mired in in the Sarge affair and the Semifinal farce. So if SCD is going to win it needs person like a Ramps, Jill or Alesha to step it up from the start, thats what series six did not have a couple which ticked all the boxes and exicted the public.

Well what an up and down preparation it's been to the series. First they have all the ageism backlash from getting rid of Arlene, but they seem to overcome that somewhat when they get rid of the Sunday recorded results show, go back to all couples dancing a latin and a ballroom before being voted off (like series one), and then they announce they'll return to Blackpool - all fantastic news. Then finally to decide to go head to head with X Factor seems to have undone all the good work, and re-ignited all the Strictly bashing in the media again.

This year is a reversal of last year between the two shows. I thought SCD lost out by airing the Saturday show too early and consistently changing the time slot but gained with the Sunday results show which I imagine was a ratings winner. X factor will surely wipe the floor with the Sunday results show this year but have to decide where to pitch the Saturday show just like SCD did last year.

 

As SCD has just one show this year I am pleased that it is airing later on Saturdays, as it is after all the bbc’s top autumn/winter entertainment show so I would expect it to aired in the best prime time slot.
