  1. Lisa Wilkinson’s story on a recovering ice addict was very good. Lisa is excellent doing these types of interviews. I’d like to see her in her own weekly interview show.

    • They’re going to have to find something more for her to do, at the reported salary. Two nights a week or sometimes three isn’t going to cut it.

  2. Seven News Perth: 248k, Nine News Perth: 80k. Ouch! 168k what a whipping.

    But to be somewhat fair, 266k watched Fremantle vs. West Coast AFL derby in Perth, biggest audience in some years.
