  1. Loved Major Crimes again last night, just the right amount of humour, drama, and crime. Shame it`s been relegated to Gem. At least it`s on at a decent hour.

  2. Caught up on this weeks episode Manhattan love story which aired in the early hours of Wednesday morning. What a waste. Watched the principal followed by Madam Secretary. Plan to catch up on gruen and the good wife at some point.

    It was really nice to turn on the tv and have some good drama to watch. Really been lacking lately.

  3. bettestreep2008

    After weeks of saturation promotion for Madame Secretary – it doesn’t even make the Top 20. That’s what happens when networks promote a show too much. Viewers get sick of it before it even airs.

    And it looks like Ten didn’t listen to complaints about intrusive watermarks. I watched the beginning of AHS-Hotel on Eleven and once again they had a watermark covering up the subtitles. Does anyone know what the two Swedish tourists said at the beginning of the show?

    • Did viewers know it was on? I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for this site. Watching so little tv at the moment that completely missed watermarkgate.

      Madam Secretary was good last night. I’m glad there are new eps. Hopefully ten doesn’t delay the 2nd half the season like they did this year.

    • Secret Squïrrel

      One said she was keen to see Jurassic Park or The Fast and The Furious, the other said that she loved Vin Diesel.

      After the cab driver tells them that they’re 10 miles from Universal Studios, they remark that the computer said that the hotel was close to all attractions.

      [Inside] It’s so quite. It’s like a tomb. I don’t like it.

      It’s our own fault. We paid in advance but we cannot stay here.

    • Interesting you think that as I watch a bit of ten and only saw promos about a week out from its s2 premiere. Speaking of saturation, 7 will likely begin MKR promos for next year soon!

  4. Watched Family Feud on 10 and Raymond on 11 until Bachelor started.
    Watched The Bachelorette on 10.
    Watched the Blacklist on 7.
    Recorded Madam Secretary on 10 to watch another day.
    Recorded Great Continental Railway Journeys on SBS30 to watch another day.
    Recorded old series of New Tricks on GEM. 🙂

  5. Watched How Not To Behave, Gruen, The Ex PM and The Principal, taped Madam Secretary and The Good Wife. Have to watch The Blacklist on the dreaded PLUS7 because I ran out of devices.

    • We have two Panasonic DVR’s for that exact reaaon. Can record 4 programs in high quality that way.
      You can program units so that they have different DVD unit numbers, so the remotes only work for one unit and do not interfere with the other unit ever. Paradise to me, best thing we ever bought apart from my beloved computing devices 😉

      • Seriously, this is the first week this year where there’s been 4 decent shows competing against each other. If the networks continue this I’ll invest in another HDR, until then it gives me another chance to kick PLUS7

      • I agree David. Also feel though that 10 will have to develop new strategies to fight the decline.
        It was already happening when I last worked there up to Nov 2012.
        That is why I feel they should start at 5:30 or 6pm and fight it out with 7 and 9 once and for all.

        The Project has proven 10 can do some things right. I still like 10 news the best but it is on too early. We still have the grandkids here watching ch22 or DVD’s

      • Secret Squïrrel

        And two Seven Newses and two Nine Newses.

        On the other side of the coin, Family Feud might not crack the Top 20 if it wasn’t on three channels.

      • By writing this I am in no way shape or form condoning splitting programs. Its bull.

        Before the chase started each network had one news program split into two ratings categories Monday to Friday. Seven and Nine had their news and Ten had the project. So even though its still awful for them to do that when you think about it each network had just one. Now splitting the chase into 2 means 7 has a further advantage. The have 2 programs they have split into ratings categories. Hardly fair and it looks like its just going to get worse.

        • If only there was some kind of industry body that could enforce the wishes of viewers? After watermarkgate I am happy that I dont watch FTA other than SBS2’s If You Are The One

          Speaking of that Dave, what does If You Are The One rate?

          • Oh and speaking of missing subtitles – SBS2 did it yesterday during If You Are The One – right in the middle of a subtitle they plastered a massive black “paint animation” with the SBS2 logo and the program title name – right over the subtitle. They are a channel dedicated to subtitles – and they cant even get it right
