  1. Armchair Analyst

    When 6 oclock came in Adelaide i was hoping the Cricket would be continued to be shown Live on GEM the fact that it wasnt was pretty poor by Nine apart from that the Commentators and the Coverage has been good. I liked how they had a chat to Billy Bermingham the man who has made a living impersonating the original Nine Commentry Team from World Series Cricket onwards. Anyway i also liked the interview that Liz Hayes had with Conrad Murray, personally i thought he was star struck and it was atleast somwhat about the money too. He on occasions seemed to contradict himself, but overall his arguments no matter how poorly worded made sense. Micheal was in pain and in debt why wouldnt he take his own life?

  2. David can you please post the ratings for Financial Review program on Nine. Love to see how it does against the ABC Inside Business which is pre recorded & the right wing Bolt Report.

  3. Have you been paying attention continues to flop badly. It is in the wrong timeslot but at the end of the day, it is the same Network Ten faces trying to be super hip and funny and I think we have outgrown them. It may work at 7.30 during non ratings but will soon bomb again when ratings time comes around.
