  1. The Cheap Seats is great. I’m still laughing at how some viewer told Loose Women about them being poked fun at by TCS and they showed it on Loose Women with the comment that TCS was an apt name for their show.

    The Dog House would definitely appeal and though these sort of shows have been around for decades going back to the Battersea Dogs Home (now Battersea Dogs and Cats Home) shows, the focus was more on the re-homing, and settling in with families and owners rather than solely the operations of the animal shelters. There’s a recent trend for watching heart-warming dog and cat videos on social media, and they’ve capitalised on that with TDH.

  2. The Dog House was terrific, it remained really faithful to the English version and is great TV.
    I watched a lot of SAS but it just goes too long. Surely the episodes can be truncated. Way too much filler so I opted out a couple of weeks ago.

    1. Great show and it works because it taken from the format in UK. I feel very sad when they show abused dogs but there is someone for everyone and mostly they do find a new loving home. I also don’t get why everything new or hot, is crammed into Sundays Mondays and Tuesdays nights mostly, with Thurs and Saturdays nothing at all to watch, or a real struggle on FTA.

  3. SAS was the final last night? Sure didn’t advertise that way. I don’t watch the show but have been watching a bit of Seven lately and they’ve been saying next week is hell week so would make an assumption its still going 🤷🏻‍♂️

    1. I don’t really see SAS numbers getting better as time goes by ,they advertised finals week and they had already moved it from last Wednesday to extend it’s run.
      Could this have been an error in that viewer’s thought the final is tonight and not last night.

      1. I think they moved last Wednesday’s episode because they already lost the week to 9. As we see with today’s share it was a smart idea. With the new ‘Total Tv” metric I think seven would be happy with its performance against The block.

          1. Yeah, they should have made it clear like they do with Farmer wants a Wife reunion special. Maybe they are trying to get as many people watching the reunion as well to help the promotion of SAS ‘Hell Week’ that starts next Monday. It’ll be interesting to see the ratings for it tomorrow and next week.
