  1. The SBS Titanic doco did reasonable business considering the timeslot and the fact that it was at least the 3rd time it’s been on there-may have benefited from the widespread news coverage yesterday of the latest trip to the wreck.

  2. The Bach was entertaining. If I was him I’d choose Abbie, but for all the wrong reasons, ie short term relationship and then pick up one of the others for the long term later. Providing of course there’s reciprocation. Bur that’s just my shallow viewpoint

    1. I like your thinking and agree if the goal is short term fun, then yes Abbie’s his girl! I hope Mary sticks around a bit longer, she make a great commentator and I’d like to see more of Nikki before she goes, as we haven’t really seen much of her yet.

    1. Is the idea for teenagers to watch? Parents to watch? Teachers to watch? Because the subject matter isn’t exactly what I’d call ‘appropriate’, even if in context and educational. It’s just you’d want to make sure immature aren’t watching the show to have the adverse effect (that is, start partaking in such lewd activities).

  3. Bluey beats zelebrity name game maybe ten should try that revival of sale of the century but not with Grant Denyer or any other of their over exposed personalities maybe get Glenn Ridge back to host it again

    1. The tribe has well and truly spoken about game shows at 6pm. Ten should move their point of difference, female fronted news back to 6, shorten The Project by half an hour and push the game shows to late afternoon after Bold and the Beautiful. No brainer.

  4. David, how did the basketball rate on SBS Viceland last night? Do you think the audience would have been higher if stars such as Lebron James and Ben Simmons played the game?
