  1. Good night spent on 7 last night – Home and Away, SAS and then Amazing Race US.

    The promo for next weeks SAS featuring Steph Rice is really enticing and makes want another episode now.

    As for TAR US, I found the pacing a lot better on the second episode. Just wish local distributers would find better places to put adverts as putting one halfway through explaining detour options is one of the worst advert placements I’ve seen. Also for anyone recording this show, it ran 10 minutes overtime.

      1. If you want to indulge in a game of facts, Seven is victorious in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Mr Knox’s ratings wraps on a Monday morning confirms this.

        1. I was commenting on the News ratings. That “Seven is victorious in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth” is what I said. I don’t play the childish 7/9/10-fan-boys games.

  2. Hi David, any idea how Neighbours is doing and if the switch of timeslot this week has resulted in more viewers? (Not that I watch it – asking for a friend)

  3. Hope those figures for RFDS are enough to bring it back. Really enjoy it and Newsreader very very much. Regarding The Block last night, is anyone able to explain to me how the magazine with all the bad goss stirring up more trouble between the contestants had done such a big article when the show hadn’t even aired at that time?

    1. Didn’t see the episode but there are definitely mags and tabloids filing on the show once construction starts. It tends to be more about the physical elements than the storylines, but they also trawl contestant history once they are identified.
