  1. HYBPA is getting so many encores (like all the Ten shows) i lost track that it was actually a new episode & didnt watch, so like I i’ve said before its backfiring on them. On the other hand, i can just watch it on streaming…..but then i would have to use Tenplay 🙁

  2. I’ve been loving TAYG this year! I find it hilarious and Shaun’s clown tomfoolery is fantastic to watch. I love the fact it doesn’t take itself seriously at all and allows everyone to joke around. I hope it survives the season because ratings are not great.

    1. I liked it on Ten but something is missing this series n yet l can’t put my finger on it. Maybe its the younger audience skewing, but it could be the change of set or sides or the set, maybe the captains. All l know it feels different n not in a good way.

        1. Probably just the fact irs on 9 would be enough, its still a bit of a middle class old white Liberal voting man’s channel, slowly changing though but not allowing Micallef enough creative freedom as 10 & Abc have.

  3. I hope some one can help me get my head around demographic n show ratings. If MC ticks all the demos yet don’t get a higher viewing audience than HR then who don’t they capture? Older audiences that the demographics tables shown? If they have these people as part Of The sample of view public why don’t they get included in demo figures??

    1. This is what I ask myself every morning. On Sunday night The Voice was overall higher than MasterChef, while MasterChef was #1 in all demos 16-55. In 16-39 MC was some 100,000 ahead of The Voice, which wasn’t even in the top 5. Apparently there was a huge number of under-16 and over-54 watching to push The Voice ahead of MC overall. If not, then as someone once asked, “Please explain?”.

  4. Social media has gone into meltdown over the behaviour of a House Rules contestant last night. Didn’t watch it, but apparently a male was intimidating a female and bullying her.

    1. The editing made Leigh and Kristie (this seasons baddies), look like they were just ignoring the Mother and Daughter team who everyone loves this season. Next week should rate well as the promos are showing the other teams sticking up for and helping the Mum and Daughter team on the last reno.

    2. It is going crazy over it, but in comparison to a full on Love Island it seems tame! Just on Instagram the highest most recent House Rules video is almost 17k views & 233 comments. A Love Island video posted 7 hours later has almost 150k views & 3188 comments.

  5. I love Shaun Micallef and have always been a big Your Gen fan. Unfortunately though episodes in the new season just seem to drag on too long. There also doesn’t seem to be a chemistry between the team captains like there was on Ten’s version.

    1. After watching 2 episodes of the TBYG reboot, I realised Ten was right in cancelling it when it did. It was fun for a time, but when Shaun starts repeating himself it’s never good. Agree with the comment about the captains too, no chemistry and I find them all very dull. Oh well.
