  1. I always suspected the voice was going to lose its way. It is difficult to connect with anyone as everyone participating on the voice seem cocky and too polished altho the talent unfortunately has been quite mediocre with all judges holding back with genuine critisism.

  2. Agree that HH was pretty lame. I’m not a regular viewer, but tuned into see RG make an appearance. Things will have to ramp up one-hundred fold even with her joining for me to stick with it. It’s pretty soapy…though Gary Sweet seems to always deliver.

  3. Maybe it’s just me but found House Husbands especially tedious last night.
    Had forgotten just how corny and forced it was.

    Was only watching to see Rachel Griffiths but turns out she won’t be appearing till next week now.

    Means we’ll be forced to endure yet another week of that endless Channel 9 promo of her supposedly scheming character making her grand entrance on HH.
    Must have seen it at least 70 times so far – must say the novelty wears a bit thin after half a dozen viewings…

  4. When all the new reality shows started, I was watching the Voice live and recording House Rules and MasterChef, watching all three in one night. Now I watch House Rules live, record MasterChef and The Voice, but I don’t watch the Voice at all any more. There’s just something about the other two that really resonate, and The Voice has lost its heart, if it ever had it… I might go back to it later. : )

  5. @DaveyBoy – Those news figures are not really strange at all. 7 News always rates high in Melbourne when it immediately follows the direct footy telecast. 9 News will be back to no.1 tonight.

  6. I still think it was a mistake for 9 to return ‘House Husbands’ on the night that ‘Revenge’ was airing its season finale.

    Those figures for the news are just strange. Nine News absolutely dominated in Sydney, but that was about it. If 7 were to even those Sydney news ratings up, then the overall wouldn’t even be close (excluding State of Origin weeks).

  7. I thought House Husbands numbers were really good for a 9.15 start and up against the final ep of Revenge.

    How long is Ten perservering with 24 and HYBPA? I predict this is the week for an announced change.
