  1. I love House Husbands – I’m still to watch last night’s episode (only watch last weeks yesterday) – why can’t the networks keep shows to one hour (i.e., 7.30 – 8.30, 8.30 – 9.30), will be so much easier.
    I was getting so bored watching The Voice Sunday night as it dragged on so much.

    1. I wish networks would learn to keep dramas to the same start time every week. Messing the schedule affects the show and upsets the viewer, then they switch off and more reality crap is made!! Grrr

  2. I’m sure Nine will be roundly criticised for starting HH late – why don’t they respect their audience (and the producers who will be dismayed)? Once a drama audience fragments it’s really hard to get them back – Programming 101. Is it because they can book more revenue from an extra half hour of Hotplate from 830-9? Is it worth alienating and losing the audience for HH over the longer haul and jeopardising the future of the series?
