  1. It seems sad that the highest entertainment shows is on in the early evening before the news. Not a reflection on the Chase (haven’t watched it), but on viewers habits and lack of Thursday interest! With grocery stores open late every week night, surely it isn’t still the ‘late night shopping crowd’ that results in lower Thursday ratings?

  2. With The Chase getting those types of figures each weekday think it’s time to start a campaign to get Andrew O’Keefe a Gold Logie next year, make it a trifecta for Game Show hosts.

      1. Yeah why not he won the Gold Logie in 1973 and is a big part of the Australian TV Landscape and does have an Order Of Australia for it and when he did Temptation on Seven they had daytime and prime time (The Great Temptation) versions of the show on. Though for mine if they do that it has to be a double with Barbie Rogers as she was just as big part of that era as anyone else and at it longer than Tony (original 1959 Wheel Of Fortune, Midday Movie host, Beauty and The Beast, Celebrity Squares etc).

      1. Yep I think so, as even though it was a bit tongue in cheek on the “campaign” side, you have to also consider that this time last year The Chase was also doing 600,000 plus each night, so that in this era of commercial TV is substantial.
