OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 29 August 2017


  1. DK – are seven playing double eps of Hells Kitchen now? If so, do you know how many are left, very keen to see what Seven place in next to build on their lower current numbers

  2. We just needed Kerry Packer ready at the phone to literally “get that s–t off the air” – I’ve enjoyed the show, but i think last night was probably a bit too much on the detail and it starts to blur from funny into just well…. s–t
