The BBC have pulled the plug on their 42 year old music show Top Of The Pops. Although always rather cheesy, TOTP has been culturally important for introducing new acts and music to the mainstream. A recent relaunch failed to attract more viewers.

PSFK asks: why don’t they just move it to web only viewing??!!
