  1. Few flops on the night. Sando shouldn’t get second series on those numbers, Bondi Rescue has not been prime time fare for a few years and This is Us …. doubt Ten will buy future series.

  2. i just feel, people in general, are getting fed up with TV…it is losing its enjoyment…
    Nastiness….confrontation…starting/finishing times constantly changing….shows moved around….pulled….disappear…then pop up again…months later….at strange times…
    Huge rubbish all over what you are watching…sometimes so distracting…you lose track of what you are watching…..There seems to be little order anymore…about the only thing you can count on…is the news… 🙁

  3. Huge drop for the Anzac Day AFL clash, Melbourne was nearly 550k last year! Resulting in Seven News Melbourne also being well down. On the flip side, The Voice was much bigger this time last year, although Nine unbelievably found a win overall with impressive 9Go ratings for multiple Young Sheldon.
