  1. Not surprised to see Survivor lifting from last week to this. Compared to the last two seasons (which were enjoyable in their own rights) this season has really stepped up in tactics and casting. In my opinion, it is now close to superior to the american version.

  2. The two commercial morning shows are doing way less numbers than I remember…but the ABC News seems to be picking up …very well…
    Dance…it is a real niche thing…not everyone’s cup of tea…certainly not for a prime time show.

  3. Wasn’t going to tune into HYBPA after AS but as per usual the comedians and guests make me laugh in the opening minutes I kept watching 🙂 good on Ten for being #1 in its timeslot. Just shows DD being a drama will be timeshifted by many viewers including me!

  4. I am surprised Street Smart & Single wives are still pulling numbers that high given the content, Dance boss numbers are a shame, outside of the dancing its an average show at best, but the dance’s are great and had me in stitches last night, it really is a good value, fast paced family entertainment show, thoroughly enjoyable

  5. Everything channel 7 has replaced X factor with has pretty much failed , except Mayb that renting out holiday houses show with Luke Jakobs ( lol ) which is weird it isn’t back on screen . Bite the bullet channel 7 and just bring back xfactor . It was their own fault with the last season making it so short and messing with the formula . Do it right and things will all be right again ??

  6. Definitely time to buy a PVR, so many shows I want to watch lately that clash with others. I watched ABC all night and intend to watch encores or catch up of the shows I missed. When it rains it pours.

      1. And even then you need one with at a minimum a quad tuner in that will also allow you to record a secondary channel alongside a main channel (so 8 recordings at the least from 4 networks), mainly because of overruns of shows and recording clashes.
