  1. Well we caught the last 15 minutes of The Voice last night, and sat there just stunned. A whole lot of non-Australians sitting in judgement (apart from Delta who can barely string two words together coherently). They looked awful, tatts hanging off just about all of them. What they were saying was mostly nonsense (do they know anything about actual music?), and a studio full of the usual screaming audience. And who’s the compere? Another ring-in from OS presumably.

    My husband, a professional musician and singer for longer than we care to remember, had to leave the room he was so incensed by it all.

    This is what Australian television has come to – a whole swag of lifestyle/’talent’ shows, all looking and sounding much the same, night after night, week after week. It’s truly awful. And are any of these contestants ever heard of again, or so they sink back into oblivion after their day in the sun?

  2. Financial Review Sunday did really well for its first show, a well polished bulletin. Also surprising is 60 Minutes still doing really well even with the different time slot of 8pm and changing again next week.

  3. Great Number fot the voice last night !! I really enjoyed it and also good numbers for Financial Review Sunday !!! Nine should be happy with that !! and I dont know why TEN is continuing with Bondi Rescue !! If hoser numbers were on Nine or Seven they would axe it straight away !!

  4. A very good start for Fin Rev Sunday, easily beating the competition. It was a well produced show. I would like to see more market analysis though.

    I’m a little disappointed with Murdoch last night, I didn’t think it offers much. It feels like it was just a narration of his wikepedia entries with visuals.
