  1. Thursday is ch10’s night and Wednesday is 2nd best night for them. News still in trouble. Are you going to let 7 kill your News Service 10? Fight it and go to 5:30 to 6:30 with Family Feud as the lead in.

    Watched The Bachelorette with my wife and we enjoyed it very much.
    Recorded Doc Martin and Judge John Deed on 72 for another day.
    Recorded old version of New Tricks on GEM for another day as well.

    Watched Episode 10 and 11 of From Earth to the Moon on PRESTO with Chromecast device on our lounge TV.

    NBN components being delivered for 27th of Oct install. More streaming coming up with a super fast FTTH NBN service and even better Gateway 😉

    I wonder if TV Week will have more pages dedicated to Streaming services as the NBN expands across the country? If they were smart – they would.

    Thursday is Ten’s best night by far. Good to see them giving seven and nine some competition – albeit one night a week.

    As for the Verdict – it was funny knowing that more people watched the Gogglebox families rubbish the first episode than watch the second episode.

    I agree with others – it won’t last much longer. Stefanovic’s dreams to join 60 minutes will have to wait.

  3. Media Circus has been flat a few weeks recently – I’d say a combination of poor guest casting, soft writing, and not having Tony Abbott and some of his old gang in the spotlight anymore.

      • “Meister” is a big word that does not apply in his case even as a joke and thank goodness I don’t have to be ashamed of our PM any longer. Politics aside – he was a big embarrassment imho 🙁

  4. Interesting to see that Googlebox ratings on Channel 10 seem to have lifted for this series from the first series earlier in my years which is a rarity in the modern TV landscape. Seems people now understand the show. The 30% dropoff for The Verdict from last week signal it’s won’t be renewed for next year.

    • FTA TV will do streaming to survive and expand. Seven is starting very soon.
      That way they can reach all the young ones living in rented accommodation, with no or poor antenna service, to receive FTA TV programmes only streamed – to make it independent of RF transmission services. So they all Download and Stream and the FTA TV Networks are waking up to this and in my opinion will survive if they stream their programmes. New units for Casting from your Wi-Fi Gateway/Router are being released all the time and the Chromecast dongle is under $50 and works well into your HDMI TV input and is controlled by your Tablet, Laptop or Smart Mobile Phone on Android or IOS for Apple. Apple TV unit also works very well to achieve this.

      So the technology is here now. People like me can enjoy it even more with Fibre to the home NBN.

      Streaming will revive

      • Steaming will revive the FTA/ PayTV and other related industries for film and television as it provides easy access for those not on Cable or via RF transmission systems due to no reliable reception. The Internet provides a service to fill that void and the more the NBN or Cable or NBN RF distribution expands, the more people will use it to watch spoon fed TV from the FTA steaming services or select their own programming from Presto, Stan, Netflix etc and also the free Sony Crackle service, to name a few available right now. 🙂

  5. I remember really enjoying Media Circus last year but it just doesn’t seem as good or as funny this year. I can’t quite put my finger on what’s changed in the show to make me feel this way though.
