  1. At least Have You Been Paying Attention? is on later so isn’t dragging things down from 6pm. Although 6pm is still a problem that needs to be solved if it can be. That said I’m not sure I saw an ad for it. Although I did see the disincentive during Supernatural unfortunately.

    Because 24 is only 12 hours so presumably they’ve used 3 of them. I hope they stick with it and not do anything funny with it. Try for better ratings for when it ends. I did like seeing Fry and Strahovski in the ad. I also liked the ad.

  2. @steviem MKR would be more profitable given Seven owns the content so there are no substantial licence fees to be paid to overseas production companies.

    In addition, the cost of the “talent” on Voice would be higher with the likelihood that all 4 judges on it get paid higher sums than Pete and Manu as well as probably very expensive contract riders.

  3. I watched HYBPA for the first time last night and quite enjoyed it. Not sure when it was on previously, but the time last night suited me. I quite enjoyed it and had a good laugh. I’ll definitely check it out next week… if it’s still on.

  4. David, I think that was 727000 for Q&A and not QI.
    I thought the audience on Q&A with Joe Hockey was very restrained. Joe Hockey must have been a used-car salesman in another life. At least he finely admitted that the new charges are infact taxes and that some of the promises in the election campaign were probably lies.

  5. Masterchef was a bit of an anti-climax last night as the eliminated contestant was spruiking in interviews on Sunday that he wanted to try out for MKR. So while not saying he was out it was made onbvious. 10 need to keep a tighter rein on their contestants and the media need to show a bit of respect for viewers of these shows. Pretty poor form all round I thought.
