  1. Nah-I bet regular Millionaire could do in a 7:30 (Temptation-if they can rework the format again, say for 2001-2012)-great month by abstract writeup by the way

  2. Got my hopes up for a moment there when I saw the Temptation image David.. Before I read the headline I thought maybe Nine had come to their senses 🙁

    But I’m with Tepee, I do love a good retrospective of the year. I look forward to reading the rest – hopefully not too much work for you during your well earned hiatus!

  3. David can I say going through television in 2009 month by month is a splendid idea. Temptation is missed dearly. How 2.5 Men repeats are rating better is beyond me.

  4. A crying shame Temptation was axed – Axed! – what a poor decision that has been. Please bring it back Nine, put it a 5:30 if need be, but it’s basically the only show you had which was worth tuning in for.
