  1. Maev....Sydney

    I tried that Agatha Christie’s: The ABC Murders again….but just too weird…I am done…
    I like Harrow….but the story line is getting a bit weird….

  2. Are you able to please provide ratings for AFL Game Day vs Sunday Footy Show? Also with last week’s axing and you mentioned one of these other shows in your article on it. Thank you.

      • Thank you for that. Close, but I was lead to believe SFS had the clear edge over the years, though credit to Seven for building the show over more than a decade and now more than ever with Sunrise/Weekend Sunrise on fire as a direct lead-in. Clearly money makers for both networks too.

    • Agreed! Last night’s episode was particularly good but it’s too hard to attract a big audience when the other main shows of the night have had a 30 minute head start.

    • I think MC has had its run. This seasons numbers just don’t cut it. Of cause people will blame Lego and not starting at 7pm but it’s the same old format.

        • Format fatigue is definitely setting in with Masterchef. I’ve watched religiously for 10 years, but this year I feel like I’ve seen it all before. It’s of such little interest to me I’ve just un-series-linked it.

          • I wonder how much MC’s low numbers are due to MKR’s nonsuccess, especially since MC seems to intentionally start the day after MKR
