OzTAM Overnights: Sunday 10 February 2019.


  1. SBS has really lost it’s way lately, it is getting to the point where not only are the some of the singular commercial multi-channels beating the main channel in the ratings but all the SBS channels combined.

  2. Oz had some good footage but the script and narration let it down. And the constant repeating of the cheesy catch phrase they titled it with was so annoying I gave up on it. I recorded Mrs Wilson. I did try recording NCIS but Ten switched in a repeat at short notice and I missed the end of the episode, so deleted it. So much for the start of the ratings season, tonight is chock full of my regular late night Monday shows, and Homeground to record.

  3. I don’t understand why 10 would play a repeat of Hughesy on the first night of ratings? Have they really got nothing else on day 1 of they year?

    • Loved episode two!! My goodness. I was so tempted to stream ep 3 straight after but have enjoyed waiting each Sunday to view each episode. Not into MAFS etc so The Cry is great viewing.

  4. Can we take a moment to talk about the beautiful candid moment between Natasha and Shane last night on I’m A Celeb! What a beautiful story he shared. Natasha grabbing his hand was beautiful and the dust certainly got in my eyes as well. Bravo for actual reality in a reality show TEN!
