  1. and i expect 7 will win Tuesday night with House Rules followed by Winners & Losers, meanwhile 9 had 2 hours of that tripe When Love Comes To Town. So they have a winner with the Voice, then get lazy & don’t bother with anything else much??
    I suppose they want to try & recoup what they’ve invested in WLCTT but i hope they’ve learnt from it. I know it rated reasonably well in the first few weeks, just like people like to look at a car accident when it first happens too.

  2. For me, AFL 360 followed by On The Couch are my two favourite Monday footy shows – smart, insightful & Robbo always says something mildly amusing.

    Talking Footy is okay in patches (Wayne Carey is a good analyst) but it’s not a great show as a whole. I completely hate Footy Classified, every time I’ve tried to watch that show all it seemed was to be four panelists doing nothing but argue with each other. If I wanted arguing footy talk, I’ll go down to the bar following a match when people have had a bit too much to drink…d

  3. Not a fan of talking footy either. Its really boring. Footy classified is a better show but is let down by channel nine’s delay at posting the show to their catch up site. Channel 7’s footy coverage could be a lot better. Good last quarter on Sunday between Collingwood vs bulldogs but the lack of post match and straight to the news was rubbish.

    House rules seemed rather silly last night. Its a bit rich for judges to give opinions on how home owners should renovate their own homes. Didn’t work.

  4. @Jason – I expect better from you! It’s just as valid to say that The Voice is #2 only thanks to 9 in Syd & Mel since it was soundly beaten by House Rules in Bri, Per, & Ade (or that it beats HR on Sundays for the same “reasons”).

  5. Agree on Talking Footy being rubbish. It comes across as amateurish and just not in the loop like Footy Classified is. Personally I cannot stand Tim Watson and the only people that lame “Say that again” segment amuses is the hosts. 7 just dont seem to produce footy shows well.

  6. @Bullswool: That’s because Talking Footy is – to put it bluntly – crap. The 3 hosts may as well be telling stories on another topic… It’s all such fluff.

    The Fox Footy shows & Footy Classified make Talking Footy look 2nd rate because they come at AFL from the journalistic angle. Sure, they get a bit tabloidy at times, but viewers actually learn something.

    Most people dislike Caroline Wilson & Craig Hutchinson, but Footy Classified is about 3 times as good as Talking Footy. Unsurprisingly, it also rates about 3 times as well.

  7. Yeah Talking Footy numbers are low, however I guess seeing it is on 7Mate at 7:30pm in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth up against House Rules, Masterchef and The Voice they win out in most households. Plus the 7:30pm airing on 7Mate is up against AFL 360 on Foxtel, so that takes another 107,000 viewers from it (as it is the better show)

    Talking Footy is repeated at Midnight on Seven in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth which is the one getting 53,000.
