  1. Nice to see the 1% Club doing well in Australia – and Seven airing it as intended as a once weekly hour long show rather than milking it to 90 minutes three times a week.

  2. Fantastic result for Seven’s 1% Club, second highest rating episode since premiere and beating Travel guides in viewers aged under 49. Hopefully for them, the decision to move it to Mondays, won’t have a negative effect. Should be renewed for season 2 easily

  3. I usually watch Travel Guides but I gave it a wide berth last night…I find it unpleasant to watch lately with the loud and obviously proud of their behaviour, lack of knowledge (especially if you’re travelling overseas) OTT antics of “the family”, “the country folk”, and the “3 bestie boys” who delight in making d…ks of themselves..…the only sensible “not behaving badly” tourists are Kevin, Jennette, Matt and Brett…however I do enjoy Denise Scott and and her layback often funny descriptions of the places the intrepid travellers go, I don’t even mind the advertising plug for Travel Money OZ Currency Pass they manage to sneak in during the show when the travellers ask the sellers if they can pay with it. Other than that I’ve not no complaints. 😂

      1. Well him over the moon…..because next week is State of Origin….. so I get another break from the idiosyncrasies of said travellers….so for that it’s 5 stars from me..👍

          1. here, here. Same for social media – if not up your alley, just keep scrolling on.

  4. “a replay of The Summit”. Me thinks someone has moved from 10 to 9 Scheduling. So hard to keep up with Nine and the numerous repeats of The Summit. Realise, Nine, that you repeat every episode so many times that we no longer need to watch the first run as it’s going to be hard to avoid on the next night, next day, over the weekend several times, etc. Am I at all interested in seeing people of widely varying age and physical ability climb a mountain? Not in the slightest.

    1. Outrageous that Nine sacrificed yet another evening of mid-week prime time content to a repeat of a reality show from a few days before. It does nothing for ratings (211,000 watched) and puts people off watching the original episodes when they air.

  5. It is worth noting that Wednesday editions of MasterChef appear to be a bit lower than most other eps.

    I wonder if for next year, it would benefit from being limited to 3 nights a week next year.

    1. I think it is his stand up personality

      As interesting as the game is on 1% club, it only works from having someone comedic as brash – and I have enjoyed his presence on the show.
