  1. Arias and most award shows just needs to be streamed live on youtube or Facebook. That has to be the next step for award shows cause people just end up watching the clips of acceptance speeches and or performances after the show anyway

    1. It’s not the season final. The Good Doctor has 18 episode seasons. With the episode in two weeks we will have seen 10. Seven just call it the season final because its end of ratings and saying end of season gives them a way out of not showing the next episodes till Feb.

  2. Poor Ten . I’m really enjoying The Unicorn although admittedly watched last nights in ten play . But not like I have a ratings box. I think the Melbourne Cup lower figures prove that people just don’t know how to turn the tv up . to ten . It really needs a flagship sport and fix the early evening

  3. Recovery: The Music and The Mayhem, what an amazing special. This show sparked my passion for music but also my career into live television in the years to come.
    I was able to tell Dylan this further in my career when I finally got to work with him.
    The show meant a lot to myself but also to a lot 90’s kids to express themselves artiscally.
    Really miss live television with no autocues!!
    Its great to The Set showcasing local music again.
    If you missed the show last night, get on to ABC iView..
