Chasing the magic million

  1. Big Bang Deserves to do better.It’s the people who are so put off Home and Away ever since the arrival of the River Thugs back in 2009 that have made the switch to 9’s US Sitcoms and when it was at 7pm The Project.

  2. Pity Red Dwarf is getting low figures, it is actually quite good and seems to have got its mojo back, guess the Back Earth episodes have put people off taking a look.

  3. A Moody Christmas was great again. Laugh out loud funny.It is a format that could hold up on a commercial station I reckon. It would have a much bigger audience.
