  1. Have to agree looking forward to Five Bedrooms tonight. Will be a very interesting landscape next year particularly if networks do finally decide to give up on 15-20 year old reality formats or are we going to have 5 years of All Stars across all reality shows just to flog some dead horses rather then risk change?

    1. ‘Reality’ is not a choice as such for FTA networks-as audiences don’t watch scripted drama or comedy in the numbers needed to justify the expense of buying or making them, they’re left with stuff that’s relatively cheap to make and can be extended to fill up the vast amount of airtime across multiple channels per network.

    1. Has been on pay TV though-likely to reduce the potential audience for FTA-also there’s a very similar British series on ABC at the moment called ‘Life’-not sure whether it was directly copied from ‘5’ but it’s close.
