  1. The Chasers segment of Craig Reucassel running through traffic to get Bill Shorten to name Labor’s 100 positive policies was hilarious. But the newbies have still yet to warm to me, I prefer the original Chaser crew

  2. Hawaii Five 0 has never gained any traction here in Australia – the numbers show it is definitely more suited to the 10.30pm timeslot. Doing even worse than Good Wife did in that slot.
