  1. Wow. Big night again for Sunday Night. The series is really good since it has come back from its break.

    Good to see Mrs Browns Boys finish on a highnote. The series is doing really well. Also i am surprised Seven are putting Ahn Do on in a couple of weeks when Border and Airways are doing well. Are they out of episodes already?

  2. @[email protected] – Whenever some “celebrity” appears in a one-on-one interview, expect the tag to be a concert tour, a book, a movie, a CD, a DVD, etc. Can’t remember the last one when there wasn’t a “what’s in it for me?” thread.
    Agree – let’s have a continuous interview without the clips-interruptions every 20 secs.

  3. Cynical of me, I know – but a few months ago Sunday Night played an interview with Elton John and a tour of Australia was announced… the other week there was an interview with Cliff Richard and a tour of Australia was announced… and during last night’s “interview” with Barry Gibb I jokingly said to my wife that there surely wasn’t an Australian tour with the ‘last man standing’ about to be announced…how wrong I was.

    By the way – we’d dearly love to see an interview broadcast that wasn’t edited and dressed for the MTV generation.

    Bring back Parky (or someone who can do a one-on-one and keep it interesting).
