  1. Why no Masked singer on a Sunday night either, maybe avoiding the Block reveals, but hitting them even further offering nothing viable, maybe they are spreading masked singer so last longer into the year but seems an odd choice.

  2. For the life of me l cant work out why 10 persist with The Project on a Sunday Night. It has never rated well so why bother. Why not start their shows from 7pm like others?? Better still offer an alternative to a news program eg game show.

    1. This has been suggested by many people but they keep sticking with the Project no matter how poorly it does (and repeating it immediately later in the evening on the same channel). It does seem to be untouchable whilst hurting the rest of their schedule dramatically.

      Even more problematic is the new trend Ten have for just running dead on Sunday nights. After The Project everything was a repeat on the biggest night of the week – even if they feel they cannot compete with The Block directly any new content would have done better than the sub 200,000 efforts currently being put up.

      If they are opposed to any form of competition then it really is time to hand in their broadcasting licence.
