  1. I’m guessing Seven will just put a movie (maybe a blockbuster or FTA premiere) in that Tuesday later slot now, after re-scheduling two weeks in a row to bad ratings? At least it maximises value from their US studio agreements, has a longer run time to push share (and often demographic friendly too depending on the title), as we’ve seen numerous main channel ones even on weekdays do at least 200k+, sometimes 300k+.

    Surely better than Naked and Reckoning’s advertiser killing 180k and 60k!?

  2. I don’t know who oversees the scheduling at Seven West Media but in any event, they have a lot to answer for on the subject of “The Chase Australia”. I’ve watched virtually every episode since April and just about all has seen only one contestant progress to the final Chase. For a show of this excellence and one which is doing a re-brand via a new host, in addition to being consistently beaten by the competition, now is not the time to air episodes which would give a new viewer the notion that this is the true nature of the show.

  3. I watch the monday footy classified but not wednesdays because I get sick of Eddie just talking over the others and when he’s challenged he just starts yelling at them.

    But Caro hasn’t been on for weeks? anyone know why?

    I watched see what you made me do. Just fascinating and scary at the same time with what was revealed about tracking devices and other things. This program needs to be highlighted more
