  1. I’ve never seen 9 news rate so low!? Let’s see if Tipping Point can help. I doubt Deal or No Deal will dominate 6pm on 10 but it should find an audience.

  2. The image chosen exemplifies why I don’t watch the Block.
    I realise challenges help them earn more money and showcases sponsors, but it illustrates that it is not a renovation show, and if they need money provide a realistic budget and equitable process.

        1. Thanks Sunny. There’s a lot of detail in ratings to get right in a brief time frame (often while juggling other things). But I try to be comprehensive, balanced, amusing, tough and add some colour. It’s pretty relentless actually, but first world problems. Just a few more weeks!
