2020: Most-read posts

A profile of the cast of Seven’s Farmer Wants a Wife was the most-read post on TV Tonight in 2020.

Surprisingly, it even broke site records as the most-read post of all time…. and no, I can’t explain it either, other than to note it would include international traffic.

There are still three days to go in the calendar year, but the top posts are an eclectic mix of Reality TV casts, British drama and Aussie soaps. And even Songs of Praise gets a nod.

TV Tonight draws traffic for Australian shows from around the world as evidenced by a 2019 reality win still being read a year later.

  1. I know that I went to the winning FWAW site repeatedly, to remind myself of who the people were. It was an easy place to review the “wives” and confirm their names when commenting about the show elsewhere.

  2. It has been mentioned before by someone else, but I would suggest a like button and like count for articles. It would be good for articles that there is nothing to comment on or receives hardly any or no comments, though is still liked or appreciated. It could also lead to another category of the most liked articles of the year.

    • I like the ‘like’ idea. Sure, it’s straight offa Facebook but particularly with the comments section, sometimes you just want to show you agree with a reader’s comment.

  3. So interesting what people read. I have recently re-visited former posts this year (finally viewing Upright and The Kettering Incident are two such examples) so your posts are invaluable not only to O/S readers but us too!

    Thank you for sharing 😊
