OzTAM Overnights: Wednesday 3 March 2021


  1. > while Adam Hills: The Last Leg managed 106,000

    With the caveat that it screens earlier on Tuesday night on 22 / Plus / whatever it’s called this week

  2. The Cube reminds me of Slide Show. Well produced, but the will wear off quite dramatically. There is too much other stuff worth watching.

  3. I could told you that Amazing Grace would win the timeslot . It’s a new show and people would be curious about it . However I can’t stand [Edit: Kate Jenkinson] and her acting . She’s bad in Wentworth and she hasn’t improved .

  4. I only watched Amazing Grace to see Alex Dimitriades who wasn’t in the episode. Agree with the review on this site that the soundtrack was quite out of place. I definitely don’t think I am the demographic for this show, so most likely will not return.

    • I actually thought of your comment when I saw the numbers ! Seems to me that the TV powers that be should pay more attention to the comments posted on here. A lot of knowledgeable people.

  5. Pembrokeshire and Amazing Grace were both very good, watched AG on broadcast and then caught-up on Pem on 7Plus (didn’t realise two eps had already aired though?) Top work by producers on both. I’d had Pembroke recommended to me beforehand also.
