  1. With Survivor now back on television following 2020 and the next seasoned rumoured to be filming soon, is it likely that it will air in the summer of 2022 and will continue their original plan to air 2 seasons a year? Or is this probably a COVID precaution to have 2 seasons in the bank incase of an outbreak? I just can’t see them having a season on the shelf for a whole year waiting to air.

  2. The Abba ‘New Beginnings’ show on Seven was a disgrace. When they had all the Friday launch footage from London at their disposal, they used a 2013 interview on Sunday night instead. Hardly ‘New Beginnings’. They couldn’t have cut any more corners to pull this cheap-as-shit show together. They owe the band and every fan an apology.

      1. I think people were intrigued about the much-promoted “cheating scandal”. That’s why there has been an improvement in the ratings. The biggest test is when the scandal is over will they be able to hold the numbers when SAS Australia and The Masked Singer begin.
