OzTAM Overnights: Monday 20 July 2020


  1. Congratulations for 10 on wrapping up a refreshed and successful season, (I have not watched this season or any other, bar one launch season), but I am glad to see 10’s success!

  2. I know that this year is an aberration (and hopefully won’t be repeated), but it is really heartening to see how great the figures have been for MC – Ch 10 must be over the moon with the final figures. Maybe, just maybe, programmers and producers will twig that people really do want to see kindness and warmth on their screens (along with insanely talented contestants). Kudos to all involved in the production – keep up the amazing work

    • Agreed – you can see that the promo’s for “Farmer Wants a Wife” on Seven that they are really pushing a warm and fuzzy vibe. No doubt trying to capture the same result

  3. HeyHey_Variety

    Because the Spicks and Specks series can’t be recorded, is the ABC waiting for later in the year to air the last special? Thanks
