  1. The Voice is doing well in total numbers and in the demos, it’s always around 4th place. I think The Voice will lift, the chair turns got a bit much in the last week but we still watched. I am not a fan of The Block, enough renovation shows now. RFDS is also great viewing.

  2. The Traitors is utterly gripping TV, and it’s such a shame that it’s as shunned in the ratings as it is. Fingers crossed the international attention and acclaim can still somehow save it.

  3. Putting Luke on The Traitors was a great idea. He makes the show. The rest of them have no idea, except for Sam. I changed over from The Block as I can’t take to any of the contestants this time around.

  4. As the voice enters its elimination phase, and the block starts to ramp up with more reveal shows, if history is any guide, the block starts to grow and the voice starts to decline.
