  1. Though we are in a rating period of the year, personally i’m struggling to find something to watch, except for between 8pm and 9pm on Wednesday nights with abc and on Tuesday nights on 7mate from 8.30 pm onwards. It feels like overall the free to air channels have given up wanting viewers through some of the year. With all the other means of watching television/content, they should be fighting for their survival/relevance.

  2. Hi David, did 7 claim Home and Aways slot as a win? Maybe because of exact timings but I see 9 and ABC were just ahead for that 90 mins. A fairly neck and neck night across the timeslots though last night with the Demos being the real thing that separates the leaders.
    For example taking Home and Away into account being the timeslot winner, it’s missing from Demos. I’ll miss Gogglebox, and thats a good thing, love being left wanting more and always wondering what their take on a show would be when watching something. Kind of like when you take your Hiatus David 🙂

    • Except that on my Hiatus I am still here. Ratings wraps are always my take on the numbers. It’s increasingly hard to compare slots when so little is truly head to head but whether as 7:30-8 or as extended I am comfy H&A won.

  3. The Front Bar did well in Melbourne, but no where else. It was a similar pattern when they did Winter Olympic and Comm Games specials. Clearly, it’s not a show ready to go national.
