OzTAM Overnights: Wednesday 15 July 2020



  1. I was initially planning on watching Bachelor in Paradise but got so sick of the saturation promos that I was over it by the time it was on.

  2. I’m guessing viewer fatigue with the Bachelor brand. Possibly even a little tone deaf to the new reality we’re in – although that’s just unfortunate circumstances.
