  1. Hmmmm our household got Agents of shield and Madam Secretary that’s it, no reality swill for us. Aussie TV is in a sad place, hopefull Netflix will grab the shows we watch. Boo Austam

  2. House Rules has been improving over the course of the season in regards to content. I love this show and glad it is beating the rip off Reno Remble. Masterchef is still great though too. Sucks both are on at the same time. Madam Secretary improved too which is great. Such a good show along with Criminal Minds.

  3. Life On The Dole is to cheap OS filler to cash in on Struggle St and fill around the State of Origin games. If Nine has something better to run, it will probably end being burnt off late at night after the SoO.

    House Rules has been doing well in the House Reveals on Sunday so was going to build as things got more serious. RR is spoiler based around the gimmick competition with old HR competitors, splitting the reno market until The Voice was ready. Nine is putting a new/rpt pairing of TBBT on next Wednesday, which will boost numbers.
