  1. Can’t see what a ‘Name Of The Rose’ series would accomplish that the excellent film didn’t in a couple of hours or so-would like to see the follow up seasons to ‘Medici, Masters Of Florence’ though.

  2. I enjoy Filthy, Rich & Homeless, so I’m quite happy about this news!

    Sad to see GBTWYCM not being considered, but, I think they’ve done what they could on that series!

    Any news on Season 3 of Struggle Street as of yet?

  3. Apart from 7 & 9 News everything rates 200k or less. at 6pm these days. Mastermind hasn’t been doing any better that The Chief’s Line, though Fennel has livened it up a bit. Filthy Rich and Homeless’s 2nd season just repeated the 1st season with new celebs and didn’t achieve anything. Go Back To Where You Came From and done all it’s going to do to, opposition to illegal and legal migration has continued to rise.
