  1. I wonder why CBS has not given this show the chop yet. It rates really bad for its time slot and most nights of the week the first half doesn’t make the top 20.

    Highly paid presenters costing them a lot of advertising revenue. Can’t see this move fixing things.

    1. Because it offers a great alternative to the other news services. Half a million viewers cannot be dismissed in this day and age. It is a quality show winning a few Logies for best Current affairs and also Gold Logie winners. The cost of this show would not be over the top. One studio and 4 presenters and 1 studio using clips from the news services. 7 and 9 has about 6 state news bulletins, so 6 news presenters, several studios and lots of reporters, so that would be expensive and TEN would find it hard to present a third news service at 6pm.
