It has now won Sunday – Thursday for 2 straight weeks, and the only reason it didn’t have a third week was because of Thursday football interruptions.

  1. I’m hearing rumours of another Hey Hey It’s Saturday revival:


  2. Very poor form of channel nine to move the footy show to 9.40ish during the AFL finals. Not a fan as I used to be but channel nine got this one wrong. Lots of breaking news in the AFL the last few days and a very good opening interview with Dangerfield that deserved a better timeslot. If you include the random times that footy classified is scheduled every week, there must be people at nine making decisions on AFL that have no clue about the sport or their Melbourne audience.
