“THE Comedy Channel”

published 12/08/2000

great shows , UK & American

not on 24 hours

Paramount has established itself as being the best comedy channel available. They broadcast a wide range of both American and British shows as well having some good comedy films on at the weekends. My favourites are Frasier, Harry Hill, Duckman, Seinfield and Nighstand. Each programmes is shown...

“LAUGH YOUR SOCKS OFF”

published 09/08/2000

classy comedy every half hour

only the brit coms let the channel down

When I'm at home at night, I can think of nothing better (well...!!!) than sitting down in front of the telly watching a really funny sit com. The Paramount Comedy Channel fits the bill perfectly! Just think of all those great shows you used watch on BBC, or more usually, either Channel 4 or ITV...

“Priceless Paramount”

published 24/07/2000

Great British and American Shows

Lack of Sleep

Paramount have got an absolute gem of a comedy channel here with all your favourites and a steady stream of excellent imports from the States that you may have yet to discover. They have established a well-worked and popular format where they play the same shows, in the same time slot every...

“One of the best”

published 05/09/2000

funny as hell

limited air time

This channel has so much to offer. It has all the wonderful shows that you have forgotten about plus a few more you wish you could forget about. It has the wonderful Fraiser as well as Roseanne but now I find that they have put eurotrash on. Why? Do we really want to see this a second time its...

I used to think comedy was the highest form of art. The ability to make someone laugh is a gift, and such a valuable one too. However, after the events in the US last week, comedy seems trivial at best. It does show the tenacity of the human spirit, though. The British, in particular, have a...

I subscribed to OnDigital a few months ago after using Sky's analogue service for many years but was disappointed when I realised that it would mean losing the Paramount Comedy Channel. So I was delghted when Ondigital contacted me before Christmas to let me know that Paramount would be joining...

“Comedy to suit all tastes”

published 04/10/2000

Good mix of British and American comedies

Takes up too much of my time!

Comedy fans take note - The Paramount Comedy channel shows non-stop comedy, hour after hour, day after day and is fast becoming one of the most popular channels on Sky Digital. ~~~~~~~~~~ But what is it that makes it so good? Is it the mix of American classics and British programming? Perhaps it...

Outstanding, hilarious, top-quality programming

None

To put it simply, Paramount is the best. Since our cable service began offering it just over a year ago, I've been glued. They show the very best shows on offer, including Dharma & Greg, Frasier, Mad About You, Just Shoot Me and NewsRadio, as well as stand-up comedy broadcasts from people like...

Repeats, repeats and more repeats.

...if you can handle the repeats. I have been watching Paramount since I got sky (about four years ago) and I have to admit that a lot of the programmes I watched back then are still on today. Cheers, Fraiser, Caroline In The City and Married With Children have been gracing the Paramount Comedy...

“Lots of Laughs”

(mostly) fresh line-up, funny shows

some bad choices that flopped (Stacked, Committed)...

Email to Paramount Comedy Channel: Hi, I'd like to register my disgust with you personally, since you've followed the Travelodge/Virgin Atlantic customer service method of being too chicken-arsed to have a telephone number staffed by undersexed clubbing teens. If you're reading past that rather...

“Paramount Paramount”

published 07/03/2001

Extended Hours, more programmes

repeats too often and too quickly

As a shift worker, I appreciate the time to "chill out" and relax, when I'm not surfing around, my TV is almost always on Paramount. Last months move to extending the progamme transmissions was an excellent idea from the Channel, but why do they still insist on having a blank screen from 4.00 am...

“Comedy IS Paramount”

published 11/07/2000

Only the best shows

Films are poor

What channel can you turn to when all else have failed you? Paramount that's what channel. Every night they deliver the best comedy programmes. America's Finest like Frasier and Just Shoot me, Classics like Cheers and Married With Children. And the best of british comedy with Harry Hill and Drop...

“great daytime viewing”

published 29/05/2001

funny, good shows

almost all american

I watch this channel more than I should as I love most of the shows, and during the daytime there isn't much else on and not much but watch TV you can do when you're completely exhausted and breastfeeding a baby who eats every book you try to read when she's awake. There are some really good...
