Ten programming boss: I wish we’d never made the Spearman Experiment

The boss of Ten’s programming has admitted that its copycat of Nine’s 20 To 01, The Spearman Experiment, was a mistake.  

When the list show – hosted by Magda Szubanski – went to air in September- it was widely derided by viewers.
