  1. Hi David, I think you had to say Seven network won Thursday then Nine not Seven again.
    I think Seven now is winning the ratings week once again with the big head start they had with the Fire Fight concert on Sunday, they must be in front by now.?

  2. I thought Pooch Perfect was originally a longer series than 6 X one hours as well…
    Perhaps harsh reality set in once they had filmed the series and worked out what a fun loving gregarious bunch dog groomers are… or not.

      1. I would imagine Seven are also deciding what to do based on numbers. – if it’s a somewhat hit, schedule it on Sundays and move MKR Mon – Wed. or MKR will just be Sun – Tues with Pooch Perfect Wednesdays, either way, even though Seven have promo’d it to death, the scheduling doesn’t scream confidence in the show.
