    1. I agree, Ch9 kept Hamish and Andy and ABC have had Total Control and Spicks and Specks special, but the summer ratings and more fragmented industry seems to be a limp to the non-ratings season. Luckily I have some drama series stored on my PVR like How to get Away with Murder S5 and Harrow S2, that I haven’t seen.
