    You haven't missed much, tbh. Seems to be a show aimed mostly at under-16s and Twenty20 fans. 'CWoTV' is much better.

    Hard to believe but Cricket AM is more juvenile than Soccer AM. Unwatchable (cheap) TV.

    It is ridiculously poor.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Cricket Writers on TV is a great show though. Shame it only runs for two months, would have been an epic one last Sunday.

    Indeed. The Sunday Supplement that replaces it makes me inwardly retch too. Football writers (with a few noteable exceptions) seem to prove the old adage that it's not what you know, but how big a prick you are.

    Soccer AM has some good bits - third eye is normally good.
    Or something.

    It is a shame because I am never up on a Sunday morning and have usually left for cricket/getting ready when the repeat is on. Seen it a few times, it is okay but I feel the whole atmosphere is a bit dull. Paul Allott, who I believe presents it (may be wrong here), is tremendously annoying too.

    There are some interesting views exchanged though, from what I've seen. However, especially regarding English cricket, I often have little time for views beside my own and so I grow to very much dislike the odd journalist.

    And also, who the hell does Stephen Brenkley (sp?), of the Independent, think he is. He seems to act like he is something special whereas he is on par with Dean Wilson in terms of cluelessness.

    Without Lovejoy, it is a shadow of its former self.
