  1. The producers of “Celebrity” Letters and Numbers are completely out of touch with their audience and it’s no wonder that the numbers took a significant hit this week. I actually didn’t mind the guests (for the most part anyway), and I particularly liked seeing Claire Hooper on the show, but this Reuben fella’s relentless anal sex jokes… not so much, to put it very mildly.

    1. From the little that has been written in the media about who is likely to want what with the cricket, what made most sense to me is Paramount/ten successfully bidding for the lot and seven letting it go. The BBL didn’t deliver for seven and while the test cricket did do well for them, seven would much rather spend on the Olympics and Comm games. Whiles these are only each 4 years, the Olympics is really each 2 years with Winter games and they are on during ratings. It would be a game changer for seven to have no major sport during the Summer but a calculated risk and they probably there is limited downside given how BBl rated.

  2. Not surprised The Challenge did badly last night! It was nothing like the promos suggested! Expected stunning dangerous challenges, but all we got was a few minutes of teams running up and down stairs. Most of the show was a group of drunk obnoxious people carrying on as if it was love island or bachelor in paradise! Two of them getting in shower together and another dancing around in skimpy clothes on a tabletop is not what viewers want to see at prime time!!!
    Expect many viewers will not bother with this show tonight!

    1. Exactly, watched last night to see what it was about but won’t bother again, just a lot of show offs from other reality shows, never seen so many recycled reality show people in one show. Can see they are running the show really just to get an Australian team into the world competition on Paramount Plus.

  3. This is Your Life is turning out to have been a handy little commission by 7. They’re pretty much able to drop it in anywhere in the schedule and it’s delivering a decent return – well, at least in total people.

    1. I watched it live last night, and the production is great. Shaking up the format so it’s not so strictly chronological kept the interest as did the longer running time.

      And Mel Doyle is brilliant.
