OzTAM Overnights: Thursday 2 April 2020


  1. I would rather have thought that all TV watching is ‘self isolating’ by its nature-the last time I recall getting together with people to watch TV together was the finale of ‘Angel’ over 15 years ago…

  2. just wanted to publicly acknowledge the producers and cast of Gogglebox during this time – laughing with the families as they made observations and jokes about our isolation, it felt like hanging with a group of friends. This show is an essential service 🙂

    • I agree, I’m definitely loving Sarah , Matty their gorgeous little bub Malik and of course Jad who usually has me in stiches along with Lee and Keith. Im really missing Em though and hope she’s doing well.

    ” Pooch Perfect ” is just demonstrating an admirable case of self isolating – but unfortunately for Seven it’s self isolating from viewers.
    Says a lot about Rebel Wilson’s alleged popularity with Aussies really – plus the fact that it was a show about nothing, really ..better file this one under ” who cares ? ” in Seven’s bulging cupboard of failures over the past how many years…
    David what were its figures last night if it slipped behind even SBS ?
