  2. I know the figures are important to advertisers, but honestly, can free to air programming get any more trashy? Advertisers will put there shit next to just about any shit the programmers dish up. It’s quite disheartening.

    How about this for the programming people to get advertisers interested in their silly shows:
    1- get Lara Bingle to appear on Big Brother
    2- get Dicko to make a appearance on Xfactor to judge Guy Sebastian’s judging.

    Compelling viewing Australia. Stay tuned!

  4. Sadly there is another series of BB. Is it a surprise that X factor beat BB?Given that it is at the “pointy end” of proceedings, it has to rate. Thankfully Shaiye is finally gone. She gave the worst performance of any singer on Tuesday night. Terrible!1
