"The wonderfully soapy Footballers Wives (4 p.m. weekdays) and Footballers Wives Overtime (9 p.m. Sundays) chronicle the off-field brawling and back-stabbing among soccer players and the women who love them, and show that Brits take off their pants one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. At the other end of the spectrum, the sober BBC World News (5 a.m. daily and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday) often gives a very different and refreshing journalistic perspective compared with its American brethren." Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, 20 October 2006.
