  1. Ouch for 9. I think they would have had this week down as a win for them considering the numbers for The Block finale. And it wasn’t even close.

  2. Mark Holden is a stroke of true comedic genius. Able to push boundaries, give it to the ‘man’ and perform live without someone scripting his every second on air. This is what television is all about. This is what gets live audiences. Graham Kennedy and Bert Newton were masters of this concept.
