OzTAM Overnights: Thursday 28 March 2019


  1. I won’t be bothering with ‘Project Blue Book’ again-pretty dull and all stuff we’ve seen before (also troubles with the period recreation).

  2. Sad to see Studio10 with such low numbers. After being a fan of Angela Bishops entertainment reporting over many years, I do not like many of the snide remarks she makes at times. An example was after the show had Mark Latham as a guest. The next day at the beginning of the show Angela says she had the chair he sat on fumigated. Unnecessary comment and drags the show down for me.

  3. I’ve loved Kerri Anne since Good Morning Australia days but after her hateful and racist rant I have not watched Studio10 since. And I won’t again.

  4. Seeing as you’re including “Golden Point” (which is the NRL post game scheduled for 9:45pm), are you able to please provide the like-for-like “AFL Post Game” (even just Melbourne and Adelaide) scheduled for 10pm?

    Always wondered how many stay watching the wrap.
