  1. Cynical me thought the fluff piece on one of Seven’s talent stable’s Anne Hegerty was a PR ratings booster for the flagging The Chase. Anyway, changed channels to the old Law & Order shows, even if they are still mentioning “the war in Bosnia” and are using phone boxes seeing mobiles haven’t yet made it to NYC. A sad reminder of years past (1995 it seemed) with how the gay NFL player was treated.

  2. Jeff Howard breathing a sigh of relief looking at yesterday’s performance, they needed that you could say, Spotlight particularly pleasing I’d think (it did beat 60 Minutes a lot in recent years).

    With the network boost of Married over, would 2024’s Lego and 60 Minutes be a little deflating for Nine, coming off such a high base? And comparing how well ABC and 10 did (looked like Nine might’ve even been pushed to 3rd or 4th for some minutes last night).

    1. Why going by David’s weekly ratings summary Seven are winning majority of weeks this year even when MAFS had big numbers. New ratings system appears to have changed the system
