  1. Neighbours should return to 10. At 6pm. It has been and continues to be a cash cow for 10 and revamping it then promoting the crap out of it should help revitalize the evening lineup.

  2. Absolutely agree neighbours should return to 10, either 6pm or 6:30. The project doesn’t really need to be an hour given 10 news is from 5-6 kind of feels like news fatigue. 10 could make neighbours a real contender again. The show needs a bit of a revamp though I like the new rating but they need to find a happy medium between neighbours of old and the B&B

  3. Will Neighbours ever make a return to 10? Part of me thinks they could promote it as the revival of Neighbours seeing as so many people seem to think it’s not even going anymore lol
