  1. So 7 really gone all in on MKR with Sunday to Thursday still. Even if your into watching it that’s just too many hours to watch that many nights of the same show anyway, what were they thinking, talk about overkill.

      1. Creative and Free To Air TV hey…hmmm…I know Dogs Make You LOL 3 which is really a combination of clips from 1 and two in a different order followed by Dogs Make You LOL 4 which are the other parts of 1 and 2 not in 3 and ditto for a Cats one and other animal ones.

      2. Are you able to confirm what first run factual Seven have ready? As it was reported they axed some long-standing ones, not just budget cuts or low ratings, but to show advertisers and viewers they’re getting serious about stripped shows in 2020?
