  1. BB is doing great total numbers however it’s overnights are shocking so this had me thinking how could this be more viable for Seven that is in need of viewers from 7-9pm to win overnight ratings?

    Could Big Brother receive the Love Island treatment and become a 9pm show in 2023? It would likely pull similar numbers or higher overnight numbers with a good lead in, whilst also attracting those high total tv numbers.

    Airing at 9pm also allows it to return to some more risqué content which is sure to attract viewers.

  2. I thought The Cheap Seats was outrageously hilarious. And that’s the best sort of funny when it’s outrageous. It’s good to see the lighter side of the political campaigning with the lesser known candidates among the usual segments. It reminded me of the time Dave O’Neil stood as a federal candidate and the need for some humour throughout the election. Though a lot of the candidates on the show are taking themselves seriously. I gauge the shows by how much I laughed and it was one of the best episodes going by that measure.

  3. During Travel Guides last night the VO on the Wild Territory promo said “….Wild Territory, after Lego Masters”
    Can someone let 9 know LM is finished?

  4. I thought it was funny when on Travel Guides {visiting Sydney} they thought we seem to be doing a lot of exercising. I do like to get out for a walk!
