Bottom Line, The

BA-BA BA-BA, ba-ba ba-ba, baa, The Bottom Line! went the close harmonies theme tune to this short-lived ITV answer to WATCHDOG of a Thursday evening. Bizarre line-up of ill-cast DANNY BAKER, EMMA FREUD, JANICE LONG and moustachioed GMTV fall-guy MICHAEL WILSON came on and stood in a line, before engaging in 25 minutes of ultra-pointless consumer-related tat.
