OzTAM Overnights: Sunday 14 February 2021


  1. TV audiences for the tennis were down from Saturday. I think the reason why the numbers are down is because that there was no Australian playing yesterday.

  2. No Nick Kyrgios or any superstar last night and the tennis went south, south, south. They’re lucky they still won, had it not been for Djoker going until half-past midnight with a Melbourne audience not having to get up for work either.

    Suspect Ash Barty will be very big tonight.

  3. Watched a bit of Halep in the tennis (third set) but switched over to Netflix. Will watch Harrow later when I have a few eps on my PVR. I live in Victoria and there isn’t much on FTA. And if you haven’t tuned into the reality options up until now Victorians won’t start now we are in lockdown.

  4. So loved Quoll Farm. Truly magical.
    Am familiar with the larger Spotted Tail Quoll from the Mainland but not these smaller ones from Tassie. Such quirky and beautiful little animals. The scenery was stunning as well.
    A real shame Simon wasn’t able to purchase this abandoned farm site as vital habitat for these endangered little quolls.
