  1. West Coaster here. Watched Hot Seat and then Wimbledon the rest of the night on Stan. That’s me sorted for the next few weeks.

  2. Include the Summit in that list. Wouldn’t expect to see these similar format shows for a while with such low numbers one would think Then again been wrong before about TV programming

  3. Watched Rush after missing episode 1. Really weak concept with confusing money & challenge criteria. felt a bit lame. beating MDI is more a reflection on how Rip-off survivor is worse than rip-off amazing race.

    Best thing of the night was seeing Stosur win $100K on Hot Seat. Only knew it was on cos of article on here.

  4. Maybe the disastrous results for Rush and Million Dollar Island show viewers will no longer put up with lame copycat shows that rip off other networks hits or old formats?
