New channel

Digital +, the Spanish satellite TV that we watch, has introduced a new 24 hour channel called "Fama". It's like a cross between The X Factor and Big Brother. The chosen contestants from auditions throughout Spain are learning dance routines. The programme follows them through their rehearsals and their daily lives.

The big difference is that, unlike on Big Brother, these contestants are a) talented, b) sober and c) not inclined to take their clothes off at the drop of a hat. I wouldn't exactly call it compulsive watching but it is good for sharpening up our Spanish listening skills.
