1. Is anyone else out there enjoying Wellington Paranormal on SBS Viceland Tuesday nights? It has quietly become one of the funniest shows on TV. I’m particularly fond of Officer Minogue, so dumb, so loveable.

  2. Aussies don’t watch drama live anymore (me included). I remember when 800 Words was 700K plus as was Doctor Doctor. I still watch Aussie dramas but rarely live. The last drama I watched regularly live was Offspring so I could talk to my work colleagues the next day…

    Will be interesting to see numbers for future dramas to air like Wanted and Playing for Keeps…

    • Given the ratings of Dance Boss and the Force/Border Security, maybe Seven should have run 800 Words straight after Home & Away. Seem much more compatible flow of programming (and a welcome alternative to the Block)

      • Yet Highway Patrol on Wednesdays seems to be holding its own, a couple of hundred thousand higher than what Border/Force did last night.

        Although the latter shows have been airing longer (2004/2006 respectively vs. 2009)

        • Some shows work better on some nights I suppose….. the networks seem to have given up on the idea of a 7.30pm drama really, which is interesting given that 7 in the 1980s and 1990s had a lot of success with Australian dramas in the 7.30pm timeslot (ie A Country Practice, Sons and Daughters, etc)
