  1. A relative told me last night’s Homicide was excellent, will have to catch-up, glad it’s doing so well for Ron and CJZ (not necessarily a show that gets good audiences easily, especially against Survivor’s last half hour and the well and truly established 60 Minutes).

  2. 60 Minutes has gone far too negative and all of their promos shock. Some of them even scare the pants off some of my family members. When will they go back to something more positive, entertaining, wanting to watch and wanting to look forward to on a Sunday night before we all start another week (especially in a lockdown!). This episode deserved to get beaten. Their promos should also explain what each story is going to be about like they used to rather than just (in the deepest scariest voice), “wait until you see This…The biggest shock investigation you will ever see in all your life…”

    1. It was only if it was going to be a 1 chair turn right? I was wondering why there was only 1, 1 chair turn so far. But they haven’t had many 2 turns either (4 I think). Apart from the turning part, everything else in the article made sense

    2. … except the actual quote was “the producer will write in, stuff like, ‘If this is just a one-chair turn, maybe jump in’” and from that the headline becomes “Guy Sebastian says judges on The Voice told when to turn” … oh dear, journalists’ spin …

      1. I think it is a good idea to suggest a second person turn if they can as it makes the contestant feel better if they think that they have appealed to more than one judge. Good on ye seven for suggesting it.

  3. The Voice has definitely benefited from a refresh of Judges, seems faster paced too. However, finding Jess Mauboy to be a little full on….. Interesting to see what happens with the rest of the rounds, and whether it feels rushed.

      1. It’ll keep going on. Most nights I struggle to find something entertaining. “Reality” shows on the main channels and repeats from the dawn of time on the secondary channels. It’s no wonder svod is doing well. It’s the long slow death by their own hand of FTA.
