  1. Never been a fan of Australian Gogglebox considering I’m all in for things Australian but the British version including the celebrity version are hilarious, it gives an insight into what they get for entertainment and it gives a complete different perspective of how peoples taste for entertainment differ around the world.

  2. I hope Kath and Kim don’t do another special talking about old episodes, that’s all they did in the last season. We have all watched the old episodes over and over on FTA over the past 10 years and the series lives on Netflix.
    I would love them to do a new one hour episode of them in real time now to see where they have ended up, I think that would rate well.
    Home and Away has been good and is picking up again. I think it’s great 7 are playing extended episodes during the week, a bit of quality Aussie drama on on a rainy night is relaxing, beats reality all the time, and still pretty good ratings without 7 Plus viewing and catch up numbers included which are always high.

  3. As a fan of TARA, they deserved the can. They should have keep it localised. Everything went wrong with this season. Inconsistent penalty times, isolation, virtual pitstops, and useless U-turns!

  4. ouch for those TAR numbers, even RBT repeat rated better. I can imagine the Real Love Boat will tank even worse, and imho deserves to as its lazy programming. Just another dating show with no real point of difference except its on a boat. It’s not fun viewing like First Dates, though i suppose it might be for people who enjoy the shows with drama like MAFS.

    Paramedics would’ve done better if they advertised more in advance it was a new episode and not a repeat, i did not realize until yesterday & they should’ve waited till school holidays ended too.

  5. I love TARA but some of the decisions this year I haven’t appreciated, like the cover-isolated teams being able to come back in and just have 1 extra (simple) task to do to catch up to the other teams, and feel sorry for any team eliminated over a covid-isolated team. I understand there’s not much production could have done with this, but it just seems so unfair.

    Also, the time penalties given for not completing a task are pitiful and inconsistent (some get 30 minutes, some get 20, some 10). Just a lot of things that irk you as a viewer. Such a shame it’s not rating and may not make a return, because as a format and a show it’s such great fun.

  6. As a loyal Home and away watcher it has jumped the shark .. I am still watching but I cannot stand the new Band in the show if it does not pick up soon I will not be watching next year for sure

    1. So different from its inception….a bunch of foster kiddies living in a idealistic coastal caravan park….now it is just a bunch of over preened young adults swanning around looking beautiful….I use to be a fan…many years ago…..

  7. Surprising that Amazing Race didn’t pick up a few more viewers without the competition of the other reality shows. But many viewers may not have realised that it was on.

      1. Still seems like a poor use of prime time during ratings season.

        Home and Away seems to be slipping quite a bit in overnights now but holding on when final numbers come in. Are the networks happy to see such a hefty move to timeshifting for flagship programs?

        The Amazing Race is doing very poorly and TEN should not have stuck with it. As soon as the second week’s ratings were out it should have gone to a secondary channel.
