OzTAM Overnights: Wednesday 31 July 2019


  1. I am wondering how Bold ratings are going ?? because the beth baby storyline has gone on way way to long it needs to end soon or as a loyal viewer I will switch off
    how many times can Hope say she lost her child when all the viewers know she has not

  2. The Bachelor scores well for Ten. Enjoyed the ep, Matt very engaging, and some of the crazy girls will make it interesting. Ten does trash TV so well!
