  1. The attendance at the AUS-SL match was about 42% of the capacity at Perth STadium. I think the reason for low attendance might got to do with high school students having to prepare for end-of-year exams. As well, the rivalry btween these two teams is very low, due to Australia’s dominance at home.
    Friday’s match between Australia-England will be played at the MCG. The MCG does draw very high crowds between these two nations.

  2. I am surprised at Seven News numbers, but then I guess it’s entertaining when they showed clips of some poor unfortunate in China getting a pile of bamboo scaffolding fall on him, then some bloke running out of the surf on the Gold Coast getting tasered because he was in the nudy., even better was the train in some obscure place in America colliding with a grain truck. That’s was my “entertainment” right there taken care of for the night. Desperate measures to fill in an hour of local news really.As for the ABC budget nope done enough bean counting in my day thank you gladly.

  3. Yer ordinary night not surprising with what they had to offer. Have they closed up shop for the year. Seven don’t win many weekly overall numbers out side of AFL season.

  4. I feel like summer TV viewing is already here in most timeslots and networks.
    Luckily some gold viewing like Fisk is airing. Also as a free-TV viewer only I have been recording some Lifestyle and dramas on my Hard Drive and those round discs called DVDs.
    I understand why people have embraced streaming platforms, but wonder with the rising costs how many can still prioritise paying for them.

    1. Same here….I have more than I can watch on FTA…as it is…I could be watching TV all day…and that is not going to happen….I would not have time to add pay TV also.

    2. The thing most people seem to forget is you don’t have to be subscribed to the streaming service for the whole year. I generally only subscribe to Disney+ when Grey’s Anatomy is on (September to March) although they got me to stay longer last season due to Love, Victor and Under the Banner of Heaven dropping. Even then I could’ve waited till the end of the season and binged Grey’s Anatomy if I wanted to save money. Binging it in a month would make it cheaper than the DVD release.

  5. Ten should stick with The Traitors and not move it around (even with the low overnight and total TV numbers). If it does, can basically call game over and can’t see it returning.
