  1. The Mentor needs to go in and fix his own show methinks. Or is it too far gone ?
    There is so much wrong with this cheap looking biz-lite offering I don’t know where to start.

  2. Looks like Mr Bouris won’t get a second series of The Mentor on those numbers and as predicted Seven’s double episodes till after 11.30pm treatment of The Resident has killed interest in that series.

  3. Didn’t expect Talking Footy to beat Footy Classified which is the superior show. FC needs an earlier timeslot, i know when I’ve asked around the same response has been “i didn’t watch it it’s on too late”.

      1. Yeah I know. Some Roseanne viewers might have been unaware it was moved to Sundays. Anyword yet on Man with A Plan. 10 should have Roseanne followed by MwaP for a great comedy double. They should also follow HYBPA for a comedy night….

          1. We are supposed to be getting the last ep of season 1 of MWAP next week (where they stopped previously). I assume the scheduled ep (second last ep of season 1) last night didn’t air, which makes me wonder exactly where Ten are up to and why they are persisting with Montreal Comedy Festival repeats?

    1. Yeah it did 304,000 on Sunday which in reality was good anyway because Modern Family was doing 274,000 and Bull 384,000 last year after Masterchef. May as well keep doing the Monday repeat at this rate and yeah a repeat already, however Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory are repeated two and half hours after they air (after Britain’s Got Talent). Plus by memory when TEN where doing the same with Graham Norton when on at 7:30pm (Weds?) and then showing it again in it’s traditional Friday slot with a similar ratings split result.
