TV OD: Can Matt Edmondson guess what enraged commenters?

By and Antoine Omisore
Matt Edmondson's brand new show TV OD kicked off last night - as he brought our attention to the best internet comments about our favourite telly. But is Matt really the man for the job? We wanted to test that by giving him some comments and getting him to guess the show. How well did he do? And can you guess the show from the comment?

1. Let's start with this."This programme makes girls look like right psychopaths" - @geerattt and "How do they not drown the f**kers" - @Chloe_Marie3x

"Is it Ex On The Beach?"
Yep!
"They don't make just girls look like right psychopaths, they make everyone look like psychopaths. They also make everyone look the same. It's like all the men are built from the same factory. But I love it. I'm obsessed with it. I think we might do Ex On The Beach as one of our big shows because it has such a huge Twitter response, but also it's so ripe to do jokes around. In between doing interviews today I'll be watching it because I genuinely love the show."

2. Who are these comments about? DS commenter alan_rose said: "He is a door handle get shot of the useless old sod." And Glen Buchanan on the DS Facebook said: "He's funded his face lift. Time to bog off already."

"Are you talking about Louis Walsh?"
Yes!
"He is absolutely necessary on The X Factor because he justifies having all of the s**tter, more light-hearted and comedy acts there. If you get a proper popstar or someone with credibility they're not going to want to work with him. The brilliant thing about Louis is that you can give him Wagner or Diva Fever and he will say, 'Yes, this is the greatest thing ever'. And we get to watch Wagner and Diva Fever and Jedward! But if he wasn't there and it was all people wanting to win and taking it seriously you wouldn't get that aspect of the show. He is a necessary evil."

3. Someone left their TV show, and DS commenter Jay_BJ said: "If it's to spend more time between my sheets, I approve."

"It has got to be Paxman surely?"
Yes!
"He is the nation's sweetheart. He is undeniably a fanciable older gentleman. Personally I would say he looks better without the beard. But that could be out of jealously because I cannot grow facial hair full stop."

4. This is a niche one. xNATILLYx on the DS comments said: "These reality shows are getting worse and worse. Food, baking sewing, allotments and now ____. It will be who has the best poo at this rate." Which new show was xNATILLYx talking about?

"The only one missing from that is hair. What else has come up? It's not Let's Get Ready To Tumble is it? That is going to be on at the same time as TV OD and it's going to be amazing, I can't wait to do something with it. What is the show?"
It was Shed of the Year.
"Who commissioned that? What channel? Oh my god. The show sounds amazing. Will it be all like George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, will it be a really funky show? Or will it be like Ryan in Wolverhampton who has got a shed?"
George Clarke is actually hosting it.
"Of course he is."

5. Right, one more. Who is DS forums member nathanbrazil describing here: "A man who had managed to tap into that 14 minute window that the average burger-eating beer-swilling sofa-surfing Septic can sustain attention. That makes him walking gold dust, and as such the birth of his baby is almost like a religious event!"

"Just based on the birth of the baby, Simon Cowell?"
Yes!
"Perfect."

That's four out of five, Matt. It seems you know your stuff...
"I think what it says is I spend far too much time reading Digital Spy comments..."

TV OD airs on Thursdays at 10pm on ITV2.
