    • Correct. The Resident pulled off in favour of extended news about George Pell. I assume Seven intend extending their late News for big news days and weekly dramas can wait till the following week.

  1. Anyone else notice last night that MKR showed a preview for Wednesday night that clearly showed the “Beauty Queen Moms” in the next round well before the elimination cook off had finished. How does that still happen?

  2. What a dismal result for 10. Surely they would realise a factual like Ambulance was going to struggle in such a key slot given the competition?

    Surprised ABC News (the channel) didn’t get a bump in share given the big news story of the day. The Bolt Report still in the top 5 despite his controversial views, although worth noting that it aired without ads last night.

    • 10 will repeat Ambulance so many times not even bothering to record it now. The big news story of the day that 99% knew but could only whisper, before yesterday.
