  1. Sports Tonight….weird time….Wed. night….and they move the starting times around..
    Much the same as 7 and 9 do with drama series…eg New Amsterdam …. they are moved around…times change…. I personally cannot keep up.

  2. Low ratings for Sunday Night Takeaway and Dancing with the Stars were blamed largely on the dominance of MAFS. With no MAFS, how come the ratings for Bachelor in Paradise are so poor.

  3. Will 9 bite the bullet and pull The Footy Show with those numbers, or will it be allowed to limp across the finishing line in September I wonder? Repeats of MAFS would probably outrate The Front Bar at this stage.
