  1. Not a bad season of I’m A Celebrity better than last year’s which felt flat for me. Unlike others, I missed episodes early due to the tennis but watched every episode later on. One issue with this year’s show though was the number of extravagant rewards the celebs received such as Tim Tams Pavlova and the like I don’t remember that in previous years and I think while only a small thing it does take away from the show a little.

  2. 10 still trailing the ABC, even with a buzzy reality show finale, highlights the weakness in the rest of their schedule. If DWTS fails for them tonight, they are in real trouble, given Bondi Rescue and Ambulance are unlikely to dent the MAFS/MKR dominance.

    The BBL finale ran about 10 minutes into the news in Sydney and Melb on Seven, so perhaps some adjustments coming?
