OzTAM Overnights: Thursday 22 February 2018



  1. Mr game show fan

    It is noteworthy to me that Hot Seat got real close to winning against The Chase (only 1,000 viewers between the two)

    It has even won at least one recent night. What is happening? I thought Nine were crazy renewing Hot Seat in the current format for 2018 but maybe it is starting to pay off.

  2. Pains me to say this, but last nights Gogglebox was one of the worst I’ve seen… yet again, MAFS and MKR take up half of the show… surely they can find other things to watch?

    • Agreed. And imo the show has been a lot more negative towards 7 & 9 networks this season compared to 10 shows (which is a feeling I never got in previous seasons). I can only think that in a roundabout way, they’re negatively commenting about 10’s relevance.
