  1. I really enjoyed Take 5 with Zan Roe, not sure how much it lifted by in total numbers, but even artists I was less familiar with nominated artists and songs that surprised me and provided insights to their relevance and selection. Hope to see more seasons. Will have to listen to the podcasts more too.

    1. I’d imagine it would, and rightfully so. Breakfast television rakes in tens of millions of dollars in advertising revenue. Also, it was reported in various media outlets that Matt Shirvngton’s salary is a tiered system directly influenced by ratings and other criterion. I would say alarm bells are also ringing at Nine Network for their news bulletins. Each network is winning one battle and losing another.

    1. same, though I think the family’s antics and ability to laugh at themselves is part of the appeal to viewers. The show also has a broad, diverse cast of travelers which helps.

    2. That’s a bit mean. I think there’s a reason they’ve been on the show for its entire run.

      I was in tears watching this episode with the guides involved in the rhino conservation efforts.
