  1. The later timeslot seems to be doing well when there are options that appeal to viewers.
    The problem I find is that the dramas are on too late and they are no longer a central part of programming, slotted in and for a short duration (compared to pervious 20 episode series) I respect that the soaps do anchor the schedule and are central to drama slates.
    Good to see that some dramas can rate well!

    1. Farmer is doing great so 9pm is good for a 1 hour drama like Marlow Murder Club. Seven bought the 3 episode edit instead of the 2*50m that ITV showed in the UK. The first ep. was fairly slow and deliberate, focusing on introducing the lead and then the two others who we know are going to help her solve the case.
