  1. Yet again Melanie Bracewell dropped the f bomb (during the underarm segment on The Cheap Seats).

    Does New Zealand TV have different Standards and Practices?
    (Here, ABC drops swearing warnings before shows eg Media Watch – Channel 10 doesn’t)

    Perhaps it’s nerves (last year she admitted on air that she laughed on air to topical jokes she did not understand) as well as the awkward off-air photos of her sometimes shown.

    Referring to another segment of the show with Sophie Monk and Melanie on the Logies Red carpet, the reason interviewers talk to Sophie is that while she may present as bogan, they know she is safe to broadcast live.
