OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 11 February 2020

    The disappearance of Leah on Home and Away has been handled so weirdly. The latest is her website is back up and running and it’s taken two characters investigating to work this out. Not sure why the show is always anti police in its storyline’s. They are always painted as stupid and slow.

  2. jezza the first original one

    Well played by Shonee last night. Now on the subject of Shonee does anyone else think that we should start a crowd fund to buy her a new dress. Its a nice dress, but she wore it all through her original series and now this one….comments appreciated

    • Sadly last week was:
      Great Australian Railway Journeys SBS Network 404,000
      17 My Kitchen Rules: The Rivals – Tue Seven Network 402,000
      Yet this week MKR up to 455,000 & Aussie Rail down to 376,000

      • Poida was referring to The Great Australian Rail Trip and not Great Australian Railway Journeys. The former was on ABC and got 477,000. Great Australian Railway Journeys is on SBS.

      Yep and last week the 7:30pm SBS one beat MKR by 2,000, so basically you have that again coming close and possibly people switching to the ABC one at 8:30pm.

      If MKR wasn’t filmed ahead then we’d probably get a MKR two “2 night spectacular” where the contestants have to cook for people catching the Indian Pacific Train from Sydney to Perth one team to the Cook Nullabor stop where they swap (the slightly shorter distance Cook to Perth going to the Team leading so far).

      • God don’t give them ideas!! I’ve been on the Indian Pacific and the food is truly world class. We don’t need amateur chefs messing with it and the quality of the journey tainted by a brand like MKR. But I think you would find that Adelaide is the ‘halfway’ stop if they were to follow your idea ?

        • Jᴏʜɴɴʏ 1ᴘ5

          I’ve done the trip myself and did a check before posting as they stopped at both on mine:

          Sydney to Adelaide is 1,375 km.
          Adelaide to Perth is 2,692 km.
          Sydney to Cook Nullabor is 2,430km.
          Cook Nullabor to Perth is 1,688km.

          So went with the one with the least difference (1st = 1,317 vs 2nd = 742), there’s a 51km difference between those two totals though with that all being on the 2nd one.

  3. The Project I have noticed seems to be higher slightly? I recall high 2s and high 3s last year for the two halves. Perhaps the removal of a game show with news and AS either side have helped. Really happy to see 10 improve across all its evening offerings. I personally do not watch much on 7 (basically David’s recommendations and a few other things that pop up during the year) so happy to see 9 lead the ratings (don’t understand the appeal of MAFS but good that 7 no longer dominates with MKR…7 definitely need a new show here) with 10 coming in behind. Do miss HYBPA? predict not back until May?
