  1. I actually really enjoyed All Star Family Feud last night – by having comedians it had a great pace about it, and was very entertaining. More like that rather than former reality tv show contestants please!!

  2. Lately have really been enjoying River Cottage Australia and “Medical Mondays” on SBS! I think it’s been really great programming, but needs to have been advertised more across the 4 channels

      1. Watched the double episode today. Has you gripped that’s for sure. @catherine – for some reason UK dramas don’t seem to rate highly on 7. Maybe why Coldfeet will be on 7TWO next week.

    1. I’m one of those who gave up on it during episode 2. There is only one way it can end and none of the plotting or characters actions are believable for it. Suspension of disbelief just collapses when everything is just and obvious attempt to manipulate the audience and drag one idea out for 6 episodes.

  3. Channel 7 only beat the ABC with early evening and late night. Channel 9 collapsed gradually after 7:30pm. Channel 10 started low, rose to Number 1 in its slot and then fell again. When multi-channels are high, it shows a lot about viewers’ desperation to find something.
