  1. Another good episode of MC last night.

    I was thinking, if I was Channel 10, why don’t the try and push primetime to be from 7pm – 11pm, instead of the traditional 6pm – 12am. It would be a smart move. This way the news on 9 and 7 would be out of the equation and the ratings then will reflect the way people watch TV outside of the news. This could give Network 10 a better shot of being 1 or 2. In the US its 8pm – 11pm on the east and pacific, and 7pm – 10pm mountain and central times.
