  1. Seven will be hoping for a big night, off the back of Melbourne alone, with ANZAC AFL clash > 7News > H&A > Farmer > Accused premiere. Audiences could/should start around 400-500k in that market alone and it’ll be interesting seeing any retention or loss. And having pulled last night’s Farmer for Anzac Eve AFL has that cost the show any viewers, particularly Sydney and Brisbane? Looks like new Highway Patrol and a movie re-run flopped there last night. Although they’re lucky Nine’s Lego hasn’t fired this year and 10’s Celeb isn’t doing anything special either.

  2. Good numbers for Claremont Murders when streaming taken into account. More drama please Seven! Barry Humphries biopic should be in the works now for next year.

    Despite best efforts from ABC, it’s time to axe Q&A. Audiences don’t care for it anymore, the ratings are terrible and the money spent on it could be better used on other shows. Get Leigh Sales back to do a new investigative journalism show or bring a late night news show back.

      1. An organisation that spends $800m p.a. promoting and enforcing a rigid set of beliefs, then allows that to be used as a platform for dialogue and debate with their enemies that questions them? More likely that Fox News would tell the truth, though actually Fox News will tell the truth sometimes if they think that will annoy the Democrats.

    1. There was a time Q&A was an agenda setter. Now it’s just white noise. Maybe the team looking into ABC Radio’s performance could look into it’s TV failures too.

    2. Leigh Sales would be an excellent choice to host an investigative journalism show. At the same time, I wonder if Q&A might do better if she hosted it.
