OzTAM Overnights: Monday 3 August 2020


  1. Geez the majority of Farmer’s audience is over 60!
    The Big Big Brother abandonment.
    POO looks like it skews old, so they’ll probably be fine in the +60s

    • Given that observation about Farmer, the show is on the edge of losing that audience as it seems to want to emulate the awful MAFS by bringing all the farmers and women together for regular events. If they want to encourage disloyalty amongst the group, they may lose a lot of viewers. People watch Farmer because it is the antithesis of shows like MAFS.

  2. Ninja this year is awesome. New exciting challenges and likeable contestants with a genuine comeraderie. Less prima donnas and more agile athletes. A real nail biter.
