  1. Credit where credit’s due. I must congratulate Better Homes and Gardening Australia for installing a mole inside The Living Room. A “sleeper ” operative who is nefariously picking out the worst possible stories and show themes that are driving viewers to its Seven and ABC rivals .
    Last Friday was another classic show about nothing ( and I thought Barry’s one hour birthday celebrations Special Event was just a teensie bit self-indulgent ) …dragging the show down to the mid 300,000s, 100,000 astern of Gardening Oz and 160,000 behind BHG.
    But perhaps no spies are involved… perhaps BHG and GA know what their audiences like to watch, and The Living Room clearly has no idea at all.
