Ratings: Conflict pushes Nine show to the top of the heap, but it's a slow recovery for TEN.

  1. Not watching either MKR or MAFS, and Modern Family lost its appeal seasons ago so left on Top Gun as my wife loves that movie then watched 60 Minutes and Sunday Night from recordings thereafter.

    Who’d have thought we’d be watching a movie from 1986 on a Sunday night prime time in 2017?!

    1. Early evening I was catching up on stuff on the pvr till around 7.30pm and then I turned the tv off because Bull didn’t start till 8pm thinking I would go back to watch and I didn’t. So the tv stayed off last night. One of the shows I was catching up on was the biggest loser and the show now having much less women then men is making me lose a bit of interest. What’s going to happen when makeovers occur? Women doing makeovers is better viewing then men.

  2. Surely doesn’t help TEN by not adjusting their EPG in line with daylight savings.
    Recorder # 2 kicked off at 6.30 to record the 7.30 screening of Modern Family last night.
    Checked the EPG and all other stations (including TEN’s Newcastle offering, SCATV) were accurate.
