Happy Mondays wildman Shaun Ryder has accused hit comedy series WILL + Grace of ruining contemporary television.

The outspoken British singer claims the popularity of the ERIC McCORMACK-starring show and other such lightweight sitcoms are dominating so much of the TV schedule, network bosses have been forced to axe some of his favourite programmes.

He rants, "F**king Will + Grace has wiped out everything! It's just Will + Grace, Will + Grace, Will + Grace... where are my programmes? It annoys me to f**k.

"All my programmes - CSI and THE SHIELD - have been wiped. It's just full of f**king Will + Grace."
