  1. I was rather surprised ‘Kings Man’ had an MA rating listed only for high level violence when there was much frequent high level coarse language and sexual references as well-it is an odd film, lacking much of the charm of the previous 2 films and very odd changes in tone during it’s long running time.

  2. Every Family Has A Secret on SBS is a hidden gem I’ve only recently discovered, hoping they produce another season of this in 2024, Noni Hazelhurst is the right person to host this.

  3. Really enjoyed watching The Amazing Race: Celebrity Edition and I’m so glad there’s going to be another season. Can’t wait to see which celebrities sign up next season.

  4. While I don’t expect Deal or No Deal to dominate the 6pm slot I hope Deal takes 100k from both 7 and 9. I can’t remember if it originally was a 30 min show and unsure what that would look like, maybe it could have always been a 30 min show but had a lot of pauses for dramatic effect and filler. I’ve never seen 9 news so low.

    1. @boy-wonder, when Deal or No Deal premiered on Seven in 2003, it aired immediately after M.A.S.H. It was a thirty minute program before being upsized to a 60 minute programme. Even if your wish doesn’t become a realisation, it will offer an alternative and when there’s more competition, it usually results in the showrunner throwing everything but the kitchen sink. It’s going to be interesting seeing Tipping Point Australia up against The Chase Australia.

  5. Being a successor to David Koch was always going to be a tall order, but I wonder if alarm bells are ringing at Channel Seven because it’s been a number of years since the Today show had a number of convincing wins.

    1. A failing prime time wouldn’t be helping Sunrise for exposure. What you’re watching on prime time is what you turn your TV on to the next morning, Big Brother’s Love Island wouldn’t be helping.
