  1. I am enjoying The Project more these days…rarely live…usually late night….but is seems to have settled down more, found their groove and the graphics are more pleasing to me…

  2. Excellent ep of ‘The Weekly’-laugh out loud moments and relatively little swearing! Also note Mt Everest is now officially ‘cancelled’…

    1. And Wimbledon and 2 more SOO (although the way NSW are playing, perhaps the 3rd one will be a dead rubber). Seven have the World Cup soccer but this means some heavy lifting for the AFL to get seven over the line in 2023.

        1. No so much forgetting but my comment was focused on sport; seven have the voice which although rates lower than the block, combined with afl, usually gets them over the line in terms of overnight weekly numbers. Potentially 25 nights of prime time test ashes cricket is a real benefit for nine and given the closeness between 9 and 7, just a couple of afl weeks won by nine (over and above SOO weeks) could be the difference.
