  1. Old People’s home and Seachange are earmarked for timeshifting. Also, Seachange is encored during the week so no need to watch it. The Survivor Finale is like a sport Grand Final, it has to be watched in real time.

  2. I loved the series and I would expect another season has already been planned. Ten should see the momentum continue with the Masked Singer. Having thought about it further most of Tens reality shows involve celebs even MC.
