  1. Filming Hell Week directly after the Celebrity SAS season was a really good move. They had the location, obstacles and talent in place which helped keep costs low.

  2. Cheap Seats guy can now stop bagging ABC News Breakfast. Perhaps mention how it beat Today? Agree that, although it’s repeated 48 hours later in primetime I try to catch it both times. The offerings by 7 & 9 don’t entice, especially 9.

    1. If Seven had gone with a regular version first they may have had enough success to then continue with celebrity and civilian versions. It’s very rare for a show launched in a market as a celebrity format to then have a successful civilian spin off.
