  1. Studio 10 with 40,000 is so low in ratings …maybe it is those very long ads each day , over and over .I need shows during the day as a career to entertain my frail mother but we can not watch that show because of the ads & silliness.What a waste of money .

  2. ” Buying Blind ” makes the classic novice mistake of showcasing high priced Sydney properties – and guess what – the show “tanks” outside Sydney.
    I think Nine was running 5th in Adelaide and Perth – I wonder why?
    No Brains Neddy could have told Nine that Sydney property and its stratospheric prices are on the nose nationally.
    And who cares about a couple of first home buyers with $1.8 million to spend ?
    This is the same basic mistake Shayna’s one off series Deadline Design made.
    Renovating mansions that average punters thought were very liveable in the first place…rich people splashing their cash on silly renovations does not make good television.
    I think ” Buying Blind ” will be a one season wonder.
    And have any of the couples “flipped” their homes since the show was filmed ?
    I would too having been handed a free $300,000 renovation based on a silly premise.

  3. Young couple struggling to get into the property market with $1.8 million budget who demand a separate self contained 2 bedroom pad attachedcto the house that they can rent out. And the producers duly obliged.

  4. OMG Last nights Wentworth was “deadly” so good to have it back on our screens and with two new characters being women of indigenous backgrounds, love it.. I’ve already watched it twice, counting down the sleeps until the next episode.
