  1. I hope ten persevere with football on the main channel . Think the pre game chat could have been livelier .. maybe try and get Ed, Sam and Santo back together

  2. I was going to tune in to The Cheap Seats but the time change caught me off guard. I was expecting it to start at 9:00 when it usually starts and it was already halfway through. I’ll have to see it on Ten Play.

  3. Well Seven just gave up winning this week; they have movies running tonight and tomorrow which always rate low. I don’t think the AFL finals on Saturday can save it, as the NRL finals kick off on Nine, same night.

    1. Unless my EPG is out of date, it’s double episode of RFDS tonight on Seven (which also has questionable reasoning in itself). With movies Monday – Saturday (except tonight) in NSW, Seven already raised the white flag.

    1. It’s a stupid decision and one they’ll regret ,I don’t know why they weren’t happy leaving the final on last night but if they did they would still be at number 3 anyway.

  4. OK excuse my failing brain cells, but did Holey Moley ever actually run as a full series on Seven , or was it a Pooch Perfect blink and you’ll miss it kind of thing ? It sounded an awful idea from the start …
