  1. With high ratings for garden renovations, this highlights that a weekly Domestic Blitz revival would work. Please don’t do a stripped series, weekly would be sufficient!

  2. Its been a while since I sat there and watched a whole episode of Q&A live but I did last night. Bill was surprisingly good and the episode kept my attention.

    • Yes, was surprisingly good and respectful, in a wolves’ den in a LNP-held seat. Be interesting to compare with the PM next week. Was using captioning, which dropped out for quite some time around 10:15 and was generally on/off thereafter.

  3. Footy classified was on gem last night at 8.30pm live into Melbourne. I would’ve remained oblivious to the earlier timeslot but someone I knew was watching 9 last night and let me know of the earlier screening. The epg was not updated so it must have been a late decision. These things need to be decided well in advance and promoted otherwise how are people supposed to know? Does 9 just think viewers have spend hours on channel 9 that day waiting for a timeslot change or an earlier screening? I suspect it would’ve hardly rated as who knew about it.
