  1. Gogglebox is very hit and miss nowadays. A lot of padding in last night’s episode. Certainly missing Wayne and Tom along with Angie & Yvie.

    • Angie & Yvie, sure, but as much for their dogs. As for Tom & Wayne, I found them the most contrived of the lot. The cocktails were too much and every comment was trying too hard to be funny. Don’t miss them at all.

  2. Your preview was spot when you wrote “it’s just a shame the pacing drags due to the telemovie length
    Original Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on 2 only went for 53 min Not the type of show that shold be on for 2 hours due to the slow plots

  3. Outside of Gogglebox, is the Project 10’s highest rating show because that’s when people start to switch off? I can’t help but think 10’s woes come directly from that show. I personally can’t stand it, and it’s responsible for my switch off. I can’t speak on behalf of anyone outside my household, but if it wasn’t there I’d probably check in on 10 a little more often.

    • I love The Project. Brilliant mix of quality current affairs and comedy. None of the crappy topics not many people are interested in like some morning shows, I think a shorter length helps with that. It’s a shame more people don’t watch it, I think that shows people prefer trash TV (like A Current Affair) over quality.

      • I agree with you Bullswool. I have always thought The Project guests and interviews are way more classy and interesting than any other shows have and they keep them short and to the point. A little too much Trump bashing from Waleed which annoys me to no end but I soon get over it !

    • I’m with you, I don’t enjoy the Project either, seems to be a more a ‘soap box’ of sorts, rather than a news or current affairs show. To be fair 7 and 9’s ‘current affairs’ programs aren’t any better, so I watch SBS news if i’m home at that time of the evening.

    • I have wondered about the low numbers for The Project as well, I am sure it is having an impact on the rest of the night. If they want to keep it, cut it back to half an hour and maybe get some fresh faces on there.

      PS I am with you in not watching it…

  4. Rather than dwell on the flops like Show me the movie and Ms Fisher, Escape from the City continues to perform strongly for ABC. 510K an amazing result this week.

  5. Gogglebox was great last night. That final show also moved me to tears. I honestly think the show would be pushing a million if Ten had their act together elsewhere.
