  1. “The Ex-PM struggled on Thursday at 302,000, denied the Wednesday comedy line-up.”

    I’m trying to like the Ex-PM, but it’s just not funny. That forced ‘look-at-me-aren’t-I-funny’ shtick works on a show like Mad As Hell, but just draws attention to itself in a sitcom.

  2. Wow finally there is a US tv show drama that can attract an audience on a commercial channel. It is a bit of a rarity these days, so ch7 really do need to exploit it. Funnily it was featured on gogglebox

    1. You are right about Seven exploiting the US drama when it is rating well. A good strategic decision but did it come at the expense of Secret Daughter (or maybe not)?I think Seven needs every point to claw back their YTD main channel ratings share.
