  1. Arabia with Levison Wood ..this was really interesting…then went to Emergency…Aussie offering 👌….I left it on Botched….not something I would normally watch…but again…it was good …not what I had thought…9 late news and then the rest of le Tour…

  2. The cost to produce Hard Quiz must hurt Nine knowing how much money they throw at The Block.
    It probably makes Seven very regretful knowing that their new $40m/year baby (The Voice) is going to have similar numbers.

    Shame that Sydney Super Tunnel lost 30% of it’s audience from 2 weeks ago when it last aired. Maybe if SBS didn’t interrupt the weekly episodes with their mini-series event last week it could have kept them.
