  1. I still find it crazy the ABC is showing last years series of Shetland and passing it off as new. The new series is currently airing in the UK. Makes people find other ways to watch.

    1. It is new for FTA. You should direct your beef to BBC who some years ago made a deal to sell first run to BBC First and forcing ABC to a 12 month window. Similarly, they sold Doctor Who to Disney+. All of these are filed on the blog.

  2. Was that a TVTonight commenter on the 1% Club? –
    The little darling who boasted he would be a better TV host than Jim Jefferies?

    Note to Channel 7: Next Monday is today – not in 8 days time.

    (It’s on the move again – can’t let the show stay in the same timeslot for too long)

  3. I saw the first few hours of cricket on 9, but missed some of the cricket (as I was at Coldplay last night). I got back home and realised that the cricket was still on. CWC Final has paid off for 9, with Perth with strong ratings.

    1. Was such a good time to be on for Western Australia with the 3, 2.5 and 2 hour time difference to the other States, Midnight(ish) finish is so much better than a 3am(ish) on a Sunday (if only the game was Saturday).

        1. I think Morbo is a bit harsh on Dessert Masters last night. Despite the DM going against the Cricket game, i dont think that it is a flop. After the Cricket is finished, the Dessert Masters will rebound. However, HYBPA was finished up for the year.
