  1. It used to be that seven won Perth and Adelaide news, nine comfortably won Sydney and Melbourne and Brisbane was neck and neck with seven just pipping nine overall (5 metros). I’ve noticed over the last 5-6 months that while Adelaide and Perth have remained pretty much sevens, and Brisbane is still tight, Melbourne is close or sevens. I thought this might be just the AFL but this trend has continued well passed AFL albeit with lower overall numbers. Meanwhile Sydney is much closer (with nine usually winning) meaning overall this is very often 150k difference in favour of Sydney. With the block and MAFS dominating prime time for much of the year, sevens spine of Sunrise, the chase and 6-7pm looks solid providing distinctively different challenges for seven and nine moving into 2023.

  2. Question Everything with Charlie Pickering, Alex Lee and Paul McDermott was absolutely excellent and a timely reminder of just how brilliant McDermott actually is. If the ABC is looking to fill the Mad as Hell hole a return of Good News Week with McDermott back at the helm would be greatly appreciated.

    1. I’m with you, Seven bring on the Hey Hey Red Faces special with “Steve the Chef” playing “We Will Rock You” slamming and banging the oven door and the pots and pans bouncing away on top to accompany him on his stove, who knew Australia had such hidden talent out there.
