Simon Cowell ... 'BBC are pathetic'

By COLIN ROBERTSON

Published: Today

CHEEKY Simon Cowell has urged the BBC to show Strictly Come Dancing in the afternoon - because its fans are getting on a bit.

The X Factor guru - angry at Beeb plans to air the show at the same time as his ITV1 hit - reckons its followers would appreciate the move.

He said: "I'd suggest they show Strictly a bit earlier in the afternoon because their audience is older.

"I'm serious. Then they can have a nap if it finishes at six and watch X Factor later."

Simon claimed Beeb plans to show Strictly simultaneously with X Factor were a "disservice to the licence fee payer".

The move was widely condemned by fans last year.

Si told TV Biz: "We don't pay the licence fee for people to play games with ratings.

"It is childish and pathetic. We gave the BBC a choice last year about different time slots but they have this obsession with competing with us."

Simon indicated he was keen to work with the Beeb to avoid the threatened clash.

He went on: "If X Factor and Strictly are first and second, why would you want to put them on at the same time? It's not fair on licence fee payers."

A BBC spokeswoman said: "We're happy to discuss the scheduling, but as far as we're aware it is ITV boss Peter Fincham and not Simon Cowell who makes this decision so it would be best that we talk with him.

"Any decisions we make will be taken with licence fee payers' best interests at heart."

FFS, people have Sky plus, video's, hard-drives, etc.. in this modern world
 
SIMON, no-one watches your sh*t live anyway!!!
I can record two channels and still go out, and watch them back next day.
People watch when it suits them!!! we no longer have to religiously follow TV schedules anymore,  we have lives outside of TV. 
Simon you should give your public some cred.
