OzTAM Overnights: Monday 22 July 2019


  1. Seeing that photo of Rebecca Maddern reminds me of how good she is. Hope Nine uses her more as she was a brilliant on the road reporter and the best newsreader. Would love to see her fill in on Today.

  2. 10 said MasterChef beat The Voice and Houes Rules last year (season average, in timeslot, total people).

    Has that happened this year? I think MasterChef continied to dip year-on-year since re-growing in 2014 and again in 2015 for Billie’s 2.2m metro winner announced (which was wonderful for 10 to happen, after the 2013 hell-ish year)
