  1. 60k difference between Sunrise and Today. The gap some days is quite large and then quite close. Was there a promotion or studio guest on Sunrise or Karl/Sarah away?

  2. The Traitors is going to live or die by its international sales because it’s not doing 10 many other favours. The numbers wouldn’t look too bad if it was cracking into any of the demos but it’s not. The Masked Singer probably can’t come soon enough.

    1. I hopeful that there’s a chance that streaming and international sales save Traitors. After all, it does seam like a relatively inexpensive show to produce.

      To compare to Survivor (comparable show in genre – Strategy game with challenges); The challenge sets are minimal and are not grand elaborate obstacle courses (hell last nights challenge was running up a hill), it is locally set so no international airfares to Fiji/Samoa for contestants & crew (just a domestic flight for contestants who aren’t Sydney/Sth NSW-based), and the filming period is only 2-3 weeks (rather than 2 months)

      Yes I’m trying to convince myself of a S3

  3. I have enjoyed the blinds on the voice and don’t mind that they showed very few of the non chair turns. The banter between the judges has been less than earlier seasons and the back stories of the contestants has been crisply edited imo both of which I regard as positive. Phase 2 is brutal (they cut half) and the dividing into groups of 3 and then advancing one, second chance and exiting one each is not a bad way to do it. But not seeing all the performances at this stage seems a very bad choice to me. Then hearing the judges opinions on performances in some cases we have barely seen was really disjointed. I guess I get the producers don’t want this show to go on for weeks and weeks (they made that mistake with elongating MKR) but this was way too abrupt editing and I reckon they’re repeating the same mistake as last year.
