  1. “Nine claimed Sunday & Wednesday”
    That was last week. AFL has led Seven to a Sunday night win for the current ratings week.
    Amazing that regular rounds of AFL can beat NRL State of Origin (spread over a week).

  2. It is Robson Green who is walking along Hadrian’s Wall, not Tony Robinson as written in your rundown of the weeks’s ratings. It wouldn’t surprise me if Robson runs into Tony at some point of his journey, but Robson is the walker on this picturesque walk.

  3. Ooh excitement she wrote ,with just over 2 weeks to go until the half way point we have the second SOO and ANW plus the finale of BB ,will this be enough to make or break 7 and 9.
