  1. Maev....Sydney

    I think I was watching mostly cooking shows on SBS Food…I usually watch 2nd screen…but I was in withdrawals…my broadband was down…4 days… ?

  2. The Voice is doing remarkably well, much better than I would have thought against House Rules and MasterChef. Seems 9 can do no wrong. All their reality shows have outperformed the opposition so far this year.

  3. Really good to see Jack back. What a talent. With all the promotion Nine did, it makes you wonder if he was paid for it to get him to do it. Not saying anything wrong with that but normally you would not see a winner of AGT appear on such a program.
