OzTAM Overnights: Thursday 4 September 2014


  1. Uncredited News Corp article gets stuck into Sunrise for pre-recorded segments. Pretty harsh calling Human Nature a 1990s boyband. They haven’t stopped working, they are resident in Las Vegas. Headline saying viewers are unimpressed doesn’t fit with the ratings.

  2. I’m dying (pun intended) to know how Die On Your Feet is doing on ONE.

    It’s the best comedy on TV at the moment. You need to do a proper review of this show. I’m convinced it will earn its place in the annals of great Australian TV comedy.
