  1. Farmer Wants a Wife is doing well and I have to say Sam Armitage is a great host, a true natural in front of the camera, there is no doubt she has made the show bigger and better, so stylish and relaxed, seeing her on Sunrise the other day promoting Farmer made me wish she was still hosting that too. Today Show isn’t far behind Sunrise which means they must be smashing Syd, Mel and Bri at the moment and a clear winner as always with PPL 16-39.

  2. It must’ve been one of the busiest weeks ever in the Media Watch office. I really thought they might do an extended episode – they didn’t. Even had a third story when they could have easily covered more about the Bondi tragedy and defamation trial.

      1. Agreed. Is there a reason why metro numbers (i.e., five biggest capital cities) are no longer provided – is it part of the recent ratings revamp that the metro overnights are no longer ‘generallt’ (publicly) made available – as presumably (guessing here) they *are* still collated and made available to the networks/industry?
