  1. The sustained low ratings for Studio 10 continue. They did a good job in ridding themselves of 25-30% of their viewers with the unpopular recent format change.

    Lets hope 10 take on viewer feedback. If not, The Talk and more US shows will be promptly back on 10 in the mornings.

    • Really feel sorry for Sarah Harris. She is a great talent and is very loyal to 10 considering how Studio 10 has been destroyed over recent years. It is currently a 4 hour show full of very ordinary content. Sarah is doing the heavy lifting currently which must very hard going for 4 hours every morning.

  2. Bring on the AFL finals! Nice to see QLD/NSW numbers higher too. I suspect tonight with a QLD team playing, we may crack triple digits for them? Who knows…
