  1. Yes..I was in older demo, MasterChef Australia…I dip in and out of Celeb. Apprentice….also watched 5 Bedrooms👌…I cannot get my head around why more people do not watch 5 Bedrooms…it is soo good.

  2. Isn’t it curious how shows with surely the lowest budgets – quiz and panel shows with no large prizes (maybe a plastic mug or a few dollars once or twice a month) or no prizes at all – The Chase. HYBPA?, Cheap Seats, Hard Quiz, The Weekly, Gruen – way out rate the hugely expensive primetime offerings of 7 and 9? While channel surfing last week I paused, momentarily, at 9 for what seemed to be an endless Subway commercial, and at juvenile bad acting and fakeness on Seven’s current #19 dross (with fewer viewers than afternoon quiz shows and Bluey). Seems costly productions and high ratings are polar opposites.
