  6. Thanks for the constant updates on the brekkie battle and nice to know Sunrise still reigns supreme.Are people still watching The Voice? The backing music is lacklustre, the songs are plain and boring. Seal tries to dominate over the other judges. Obviously Tricky Business is riding on the back of The Voice which runs over time and so eats into the tricky business time. I didnt watch ten’s late news. Hopefully Sandra Sully is not on anymore. She used to giggle like a silly schoolgirl in front of Brad.

  10. Great to see Tricky Business doing so well, even when in a late time slot. Good mix of Australian family drama with the added twist of the investigation each week. It deserves success.
