  1. Kochie no way with his one sided views, Sam very pleasing, but the real story is the poor numbers for Suits.
    One of the best shows on TV along with The Good Wife and put on after the utterly woeful inane Mrs Browns Boys and Scandal.
    I guess people are ready to watch inane shows over quality TV, or sorry are watching inane shows over quality TV, my books are starting to get read again now, just about given up on TV completely. It is good the Ten network show drama with Wonderland and Neighbours, and other great shows. Wonderland should be repeated from series one over summer. It does grow on you.

  2. Sam Armytage does polarise viewers without a doubt.

    For me, I preferred Mel, but to be fair, the ratings appear stronger now than they did with Mel in the seat.

    Surprised by the low numbers for Michael Hutchence special.

  3. I will agree with Ryan too, but bar Today – never liked that one. I used to love Sunrise but now its just brain numbing – maybe it’s that everybody is getting old and starting to annoy me with laughing and lame jokes. But I cannot stand Sam! The show started going downhill when she jumped on board. And yes Sunrise really need to update the set, the couch always looks dirty and stained – worst choice in fabric!

  4. Haven’t really been watching recipe to riches but am often curious as to what product has won. Usually the product is advertised on the homepage of Woolworths website the day after the episode. Strangely today nothing on Woolworths website homepage about recipe to riches.

  5. I used to watch sunrise but I’m just not much of a fan of Sam Armytage, I prefer Mel Doyle and Kochie starting getting on my nerves as he seems to sit on his high horse.
    Today shows Karl and Lisa have great Chemistry but I also agree about Sylvia I don’t think she is well suited to the team.

  6. I am with you Ryan. I think that Sunrise is just inane. I have always been a Today Show person but something is up with Today since Sylvia Jefferies joined. Lisa seems to be a different person since Sylvia joined, I really hope I am wrong buy Sylvia seems to love to interject far more than when Georgie was in the chair. Maybe she covets Lisa’s job.
    If there is to be a shakeup when Tim Gilbert joins then I would suggest that Sylvia goes as Lisa is normally so professional & her chemistry with Karl is normally spot on.
    Hope I am wrong but even I am finding myself turning off to ABC Breakfast sometimes.

  7. Have to disagree with ryan think Sunrise is a great start to the day, its light hearted, have lots of laughs and funny things to enjoy, who wants to watch stuffed shirts all the time, and with so much devastation in the world today, its nice to be able to smile and forget all the horrible things for a short while.

  8. I can’t stand Sunrise! The show has no intelligence what so ever, they talk too much crap, the set is too cold looking and the hosts are just boring. The Today show and studio 10 however are much more informative and warm shows.
