    Has anyone else seen Nine’s Rugby Union promo where they refer to South Africa as ‘The Meat Eaters’ and to NZ as ‘The Sheep F***ers’. How do any of the people working in the Nine promo department still have jobs.

  2. MuchoTB July 22, 2011 at 10:44 am -

    A new episode of SVU gets almost twice the ratings of Law and Order: LA. Didn’t see that one coming!! Certainly didn’t expect it to land outside the Top 20.

    Seven have been advertising Body of Proof and Dinner Date as upcoming shows, maybe one of these series will take the 8:30 Thursday slot? If they keep up the LOLA double eps, they’ll be slaughtered

  3. Lizzie May July 22, 2011 at 10:19 am -

    I attempted to watch Crownies last night. I lasted 15 minutes. Old-fashioned and Boring. It’s a crime in itself.

  4. samo July 22, 2011 at 10:16 am -

    hey channel 9- you have runined the Block- I have stopped watching!- i gave it a fair go, but with your insistance on stupid challenges- no building- b o r i n g – last night whata joke- a stall at a market…give me stenghth…go back to what made the block a good show this inane crap is boring me to tears- i switched over to ABC news- what a breath of fresh air that was !

  5. Maev July 21, 2011 at 6:43 pm -

    @ steve….and I say again….leave The Defenders alone….I like the show…and am happy where it is…but not happy that it is being pushed back later….
    For goodness sake…it is only one series…..it will be all over for both of us at the end of this series….which is a real shame!

  6. Harry July 21, 2011 at 6:14 pm -

    Offspring was great last night… for those on Team Patrick. Im on Team Chris.

  7. TDJ July 21, 2011 at 2:48 pm -

    @ Eye Spy. I agree with you. When people realise that Top Gear was not another repeat, it will improve. People need to stop blaming programs for the incompetence of networks. There are so many repeats that people just can’t keep track of what is new and what is not. The utterly incompetent way that the EPG’s are run does not help. Don’t get me started on the illiterate idiots that write them. They can’t construct a sentence or place any “useful” information about a program most of the time. They also need to go back to school and learn to spell. It amazes me that networks allow such mistakes and carelessness to be broadcast. You would think they would make some effort to look competent and professional. I guess greed does make people stupid. I guess the Murdock’s are a prime example of what happens when you don’t keep your eye on the ball.

  8. steve July 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm -

    The Defenders need to go… like 2 weeks ago.

    Send it to Friday night and give Late News a decent chance for goodness sake

  9. Eye Spy July 21, 2011 at 1:39 pm -

    I too didn’t realise that TG was back.
    I would expect that the ratings will improve when viewers (who missed the return) are better informed.
    Another run on the tired old complaints about too many ads. (which I totally agree with) .
    Record the shows then fast forward the ads. Not too hard is it.
    Apart from sport (relatively ad. free) I have been doing this for years and it does wonders for preventing me throwing a brick through the screen.

  10. Craig July 21, 2011 at 1:08 pm -

    FYI both TG and Worst Case are listed on the EPG for next week at 8:30 and 10 and amazingly they are in correct run order. But I know from recent experience the EPG can change in the blink of an eye, that said I doubt Nine will pull TG from it’s line up, not sure if the same cane be said about Bear’s new show. What works in the wild sound silly if not dangerous in those ‘Worst Case Scenario’s’.

  11. catherine July 21, 2011 at 12:45 pm -

    Materchef will be interesting tonight. It will be a shock who ever goes. I just hope it isnt Michael.

  12. Geoff July 21, 2011 at 11:35 am -

    @ MuchoTB,

    Is it fair to critize TEN for sticking with The Defenders after it only got 265k starting at 10:15pm? Normally for post 10pm timeslots 300k is a good figure, considering the majority of the viewing audience goes to bed.

    I give TEN credit for actually sticking with it.

  13. David July 21, 2011 at 11:23 am -

    Hi David

    I would be interested to know, if you can provide the figures how the ratings are for Martha Stewart at 730am, Sons and Daughters at 830am, and Home and Away the Eearly Years at 9am are on 7two?

    Thanks

  14. MuchoTB July 21, 2011 at 11:12 am -

    Top Design lost 400k viewers from last week.

    Covert Affairs not doing too crash hot either, only doing 571k. Thats worse than Desperate Housewives was getting – it will be interesting to see if Seven keep it there or bring back repeats of Criminal Minds

    The Defenders on 265k, how long will Ten persist with this show?

  15. Jezza July 21, 2011 at 10:23 am -

    Top Design dropped off….thank goodness

  16. Nik C July 21, 2011 at 10:15 am -

    The Block is still going strong, but I think it is getting a bit tedious, all the “dramas” and the budget, according the the block website they all still have $70,000, so It doesn’t make sense.

    Top Design seemed to lose viewers too! Still seems like homeMade with a new host!

  17. ohyeah July 21, 2011 at 10:07 am -

    GO! channel needs to stop ariing so many movies.. its killing the channel!!

  18. Rutzie July 21, 2011 at 12:51 am -

    Nine must be devastated at those Top Gear numbers. Bad night all round for Nine with GO! (possibly it’s worst share) being beaten by ABC2. Looks like those promos for Worst Case Scenario during the last State of Origin game also didn’t pay off. Winners & Losers pulling great figures considering it didn’t start until 9.30pm last night.

  19. tmorgan July 20, 2011 at 8:43 pm -

    Top Gear should be a Saturday show right after Funniest Home Videos.
    I reckon it would work.

  20. Secret Squïrrel July 20, 2011 at 7:58 pm -

    Re Top Gear – I agree – “taken the shine off the brand” sums it up perfectly for me. I, too used to watch it religiously when it was on SBS. Then Nine completely stuffed last season around, inserting random reruns of specials in between new eps.

    I gave up trying to work out what was new, what was a repeat of what had been on SBS but might be the full show (with the news or second guest), and what was just a regular repeat. And then they spammed it on Go! and I didn’t want to watch it any more.

    Was last night’s ep any good? I assume from the start-finish times that it was the full version but it must’ve been crammed with ads.

  21. Goonies July 20, 2011 at 6:44 pm -

    Top Gear’s problem is the late start time (it was 7.30 on SBS wasn’t it?) and the fact it now goes for just over 90 minutes because of ads and of course the ads themselves.

    I get annoyed at the thought of having to sit and watch 1.5 hours with ads shoved in every which way possible!

    I preferred having it on a Monday night as well.

  22. ryan July 20, 2011 at 6:38 pm -

    i think eleven would do alot better daily if they had the simpsons @ 6pm weeknights instead of boring sabrina!

  23. ryan July 20, 2011 at 6:34 pm -

    Loved Ten l8 news last night, lots more news stories and the breaking news was done very well bewteen sandra and hamish, also i got a look at sandra’s hot behind:)

  24. steve July 20, 2011 at 6:17 pm -

    David, just a heads up

    I think you have put the ‘Channels’ breakdown for Tuesday in the Monday section??

    Agreed.. Bondi Vet was hilarious! Poor thing but it was sooo funny

  25. JoeS July 20, 2011 at 5:10 pm -

    # Goonies

    You not the only one, had to laugh out loud and I was alone at the time…

  26. Craig July 20, 2011 at 4:55 pm -

    Ouch! Nine what have you done to Top Gear? 735k viewers for a brand new ep just a few weeks old, even NCIS LA managed to beat it. And to rub salt in the wounds TEN once again beat it over all, pushing Nine to 3rd for the night. Maybe they should have fast tracked it sooner, like the week after the UK airing?

    Leave it to Nine to kill the TG franchise!

  27. Rick2 July 20, 2011 at 4:51 pm -

    PS re Top Gear – the printed guide in the Review section of The Australian had ‘TBA’ at 8:30 and no mention of Bear Grylls show afterwards either. Maybe other guides were the same? Maybe 9 just expected a million viewers to turn up like magic.

  28. Rick2 July 20, 2011 at 4:34 pm -

    Top Gear paid the ratings price last night for all the mucking around and over exposure 9 has subjected it to since securing the rights. They have taken the shine off the brand.

    This show used to be one which my mates & I in various places all around the country would stop everything to watch religiously every week. Then follow up with texts & emails about it for days afterwards.

    Last season also was less than their best I must say – but last night the content seemed to be back on track. I expected to be disappointed but was pleasantly surprised.

    I reckon one of the key low ratings factors was the lack of promotion – if I hadn’t seen it mentioned on on this site I would have missed it. And of the reminders I shot out to mates yesterday – not one of them had realised it was back on.

    You’re welcome Channel 9 – but how about some promos?

  29. Tom July 20, 2011 at 3:03 pm -

    supernatural 245k sensational

  30. Goonies July 20, 2011 at 2:49 pm -

    I’d like to say a big thank you to Bondi Vet for the bulging eye labrador – I laughed so hard I nearly wet myself.

    Gold, Jerry, Gold!

  31. Michael July 20, 2011 at 1:57 pm -

    Yes good numbers for Ten’s Late News. And their news special (which I assume is the figure for Letterman) did well as well. Negus also up from Monday, I think as people realise the repeats have gone, more people will watch it at 6:30pm, which will mean less watching ‘the other two’ (hopefully). Nine still doing badly on Tuesdays. They should’ve put Hamish & Andy on Tuesdays (maybe 8:30pm), because they usually win Thursdays anyway, and Tue / Wed are usually bad tonights for Nine.

  32. Carl S July 20, 2011 at 12:43 pm -

    It’s great to see Keeping up Appearances do so well on 7TWO. I think nine could have debuted Bear’s new show at a better time slot ffs.

  33. Thomas July 20, 2011 at 11:13 am -

    When was sneak peak dinner date on? That’s so random.

  34. JB July 20, 2011 at 11:03 am -

    @Moanique. Don’t know why we’re in Afghanistan but it’s not because of sharia law. And they are before the courts so let them deal with it, but this a tv blog, not the place to debate whether you agree with sharia law.
    But just a day after the comaprison with ACA & TT and majority of comments were praising 6.30 and how the standard is better, not tabloid trash. It’s staggering why they would choose a fool like him who i’m pretty sure was on ACA before, why they’d interview him for a Muslim’s view on the matter. And yeah Geroge’s smirk was annoying and probably cos he knew the responses he was gonna get were ridiculous and thought it’d be funny. But come on i thought 6.30 was better than that.

  35. steve July 20, 2011 at 10:54 am -

    @JB and Allie
    I’m quite pleased with the interview on 6.30 last night. It’s not as if George gave him a pass on anything. I’d rather see this bag nuts out in open for us all to see instead of lurking in the shadows.

  36. The Other Adam July 20, 2011 at 10:47 am -

    I agree, I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears when I saw George interviewing that idiot “Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon”. This fellow belongs on ACA/TT, or better, not getting any attention at all.

    I hope this isn’t their way of attempting to boost ratings

  37. Moanique in Brisbane July 20, 2011 at 10:37 am -

    p.s afterall, that is one of the main reasons we are in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban, because they force Sharia Law onto the Afghans

  38. Moanique in Brisbane July 20, 2011 at 10:36 am -

    @JB & Allie, regardless of whether Conlon was an appropriate person to comment on the Sharia Law bashing, the fact is that Sharia Law is being practiced in Australia and shouldn’t be. We have our own laws for everyone, and they should not come to this country and expect to operate under their own laws. I’d like to see the people presiding over Sharia Law and those metering out the punishment face our courts and get a lesson in what the law of their chosen country is.

  39. Jezza July 20, 2011 at 10:29 am -

    What are ch9 gonna do with TG, new show, very watchable but 17th on the night & 9 were slaughtered. They need to find a new timeslot for it, maybe Mon or Thurs…dunno what do people think? cos when PTTR comes back nothing will change

  40. Kieran July 20, 2011 at 10:19 am -

    Excellent, excellent numbers for TEN’s Late News!

  41. Benji July 20, 2011 at 10:15 am -

    Sorry… is that new Top Gear down at number 17 for the night?

  42. Allie July 20, 2011 at 8:19 am -

    @jb, I was also disappointed that George Negus had that Conlon on re the sharia law bashing in Sydney. That bloke is not representative of majority Muslim opinion in this country. He is clearly an extremist. The number of Islamic Wahhabists and sharia law advocates in Australia would be negligible, yet the media give them enormous amounts of oxygen thus blowing their true presence in Australia out of all proportion. I also didn’t like the smirk George wore for much of the interview.

  43. JB July 19, 2011 at 7:39 pm -

    Well for the first time, 6.30 with George Negus descended to ACA & TT territory tonight. What on earth were they thinking getting that nutjob in to comment about Sharia Law and the case in Sydney? He clearly represents himself and not the majority in the Muslim community. Guys like him belong on ACA & TT. They should have got the women that appeared on Q&A last night. One of the most reasonable, intelligent and understanding person i’ve heard speak on issues from a Muslim perspective.

  44. steve July 19, 2011 at 7:22 pm -

    @David @ Green Point

    Let’s not forget these days the movie studios put in an extra sneaky scene from the film at the end of the credits

  45. Trix July 19, 2011 at 4:53 pm -

    @David@GreenPoint, my husband now knows there’s no point trying to escape the cinema before I’ve sat through all the credits! And I’m always staggered at the never ending credit roller for big budget American films – it’s a credit to Australian production values that we manage to produce some extraordinary films and TV shows using much, much smaller crews and post-production people.

  46. ryan July 19, 2011 at 2:44 pm -

    2 shows i hope Ten keep next yr, Before the game and One week @ a time.
    One week got 124,000 last night and was a great ep!
    Sooooo good to see sandra back @ 10.30! and looking dam hot too! But there wasn’t much news last night!! i hope they get more news stories on and including new stories found after 6.30 news has finished. And it should go for 45 mins, 30 of news and weather and 15 of sport.

  47. Maev July 19, 2011 at 2:33 pm -

    @ David @ Green Point …..I also sit and read the credits….you often glean some very interesting information from them……….
    And I also dislike immensely…the teeny weeny news desk on TEN….thank goodness I only have to put up with it for a few minutes…..stopped watching when they removed Ron Wilson….but still watch my favourite weather person…. :)

  48. Maev July 19, 2011 at 2:26 pm -

    @ ryan….I would like to see Kim Watkins on anything…besides the ads she is doing…..she is being wasted…..
    I do not know why they did not put her on The Circle or something…..

  49. ryan July 19, 2011 at 2:17 pm -

    wow that dessert was incredible last night on mc! It looked so dam good but man that was a hard 1 to make. They havn’t had many pressure tests with hard things to make this yr like previous seasons, that’s prob the thing i miss most about this yr, i miss the major hard tests like the Croquembouche.

  50. MuchoTB July 19, 2011 at 2:03 pm -

    Great to see Supernatural hitting 250k! And Being Human (US) is a great series. Once it hits episode 5, the show gets even better. If anyone enjoys series like Buffy, Angel and the Vampire Diaries, BH is definitely worth a look!

  51. ompman July 19, 2011 at 12:38 pm -

    sandy thats because the abc is full of lefty wingnuts

  52. catherine July 19, 2011 at 11:35 am -

    The Amazing Race was good last night. Its nice to see them go to places I’d probbaly never visit. Jerasulem was a great place to go and even last week Israel looked a beautiful country. Different ot what Id imagined. Next week in Sri Lanka looks good to,

    Im looking foward to GT tonight to see who gets through. All of them were good last week and deserve to go through.

    Although Grant said on Sunrise yesterday that one of the contestants cracked it when they didnt get put though and he was very surprised by there behaviour. Said he was very disappointed but wouldnt give it away on who it was. But I know its not Jack because he said he’s to polite to carry on like that. Anyway have to see who doesnt get through.

  53. Frankie July 19, 2011 at 11:18 am -

    @bettestreep2008 Bet you got excited seeing The Age’s red masthead yesterday too.

  54. Tim July 19, 2011 at 10:24 am -

    Rescue Special Ops is really doing OK… I like it… This season has been much better – hope it gets renewed

  55. steve July 19, 2011 at 10:17 am -

    Sandra is back!

    Did anyone catch it last night, her exact quote “Just be happy we’re on.. and at a good time” then she rubbed her hands together and chuckled. Love her lol

  56. bettestreep2008 July 19, 2011 at 9:42 am -

    Sandy – I was going to watch Insiders until I learned that John Howard was the guest.

    Same goes for when the 7pmProject had Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop on.

  57. ryan July 18, 2011 at 11:30 pm -

    i wanna see Rove, sandra sully, gary from mc and kim watkins on can of worms! would be a laugh with them i rekon

  58. Sandy July 18, 2011 at 8:10 pm -

    It appears that the thought of Barry Cassidy interviewing John Howard did not turn the viewers onto the Insiders 10th birthday special, it lost 20,000 viewers on last weeks ratings

  59. Allie July 18, 2011 at 6:40 pm -

    @steve, I agree re the new set of Ten’s 5pm Sydney news. It’s godawful and the desk is way too small, I feel claustrophobic watching it. I may be imagining it, but Deborah appears to be really hunched over now as she doesn’t have as much room to move as she did before.

    @Jezza, LOL re cooking for the Taliban leader, Definitely not one you’d want to be in the bottom two after.

  60. steve July 18, 2011 at 6:11 pm -

    How can TEN News be crying poor when they’ve just given the Sydney newsroom set a makeover?

    It looks shocking… i can see Bill’s socks and shoes. He and Deborah are practically touching shoulders due to the desk being to small.

  61. Jezza July 18, 2011 at 5:07 pm -

    Once people had realised that DA had ended and that ch7 rolled them into a crappy repeat of castle, almost one million switched off or went elsewhere. So the whole process of abruptly ending the show achieved…….err nothing. What a bunch of tossers.

    I thought the Dalai Lama appearing on such a commercial show was somewhat demeaning to him and his role in life. It didn’t seem right. However I agree with other posters about having different religeous leaders on, I was thinking of an Afghan week where they cook for the leader of the Taliban…wouldn’t want to be eliminated on that one!!!

  62. J Shaw July 18, 2011 at 4:38 pm -

    I agree with Steve (July 18) regarding “First Look” they did the same with Glee. Surely can could show more sponsors to make money as Lachlan Murdoch axed video hits & the AFL (next tv rights) but they keep showing more of their own promo’s.

  63. David @ Green Point July 18, 2011 at 4:31 pm -

    The networks (here and USA) went through a brief period when they totally dropped the closing credits for shows and movies.

    I understand they got read the riot act by their suppliers, hence the now squashed up, fast moving closing creds for films and the bastardisation of ‘em in peak viewing times (when the networks redo the graphics and scroll ‘em like a bat out of hell.)

    Personally, I have been known to sit in the cinema reading the entire, slow moving credit scroll at the conclusion of the feature because:

    1: I’m really interested in learning who the 2nd Unit Chief Clapper Boy was, and:

    2: I’ve paid $16 for a bloody ticket and I’m sure as hell not going to get up and leave while the flick is still flickering!

  64. Goonies July 18, 2011 at 3:49 pm -

    I thought last night’s MC was the worst episode ever.

    I do not want to be preached at on a Sunday evening by condesceding religious folk who are pretending to be all peace and love about everything (DL is the exception obviously)

    It just did not make any sense

  65. Craig July 18, 2011 at 3:35 pm -

    ITA about the ending of DA last night but they were no better with Lost after it’s long run and countless other shows having their end credits totally cut, I for one think it’s just wrong. Last night for example they should have went to black and at least started the credits before putting up the Bones promo.

    Only 871k for The Mentalist, wonder if that will be back in Sept or wait until the new year for the next season? It’s never been the same since the move to Sundays.

  66. Eye Spy July 18, 2011 at 3:06 pm -

    The ABC wisely dropped the first episodeof the new series of Midsomer Murders last night as it was up against the last one of DA.
    MM rates highly for the channel so it will be interesting to see how it goes next sunday without John Nettles in the leading role. Depends what its up against I suppose.
    As for 7 and the way DA was ended what do you expect? Commercial channels have no class or care how viewers are treated. A pox on all of them!

  67. Allie July 18, 2011 at 2:44 pm -

    Masterchef really upped the ante last night re celebrity guests. The Dalai Lama is a pretty big celebrity, how the hell did they swing that? It was kind of odd, really, but quite enjoyable. And finally, finally, a recipe I want to try – Michael’s beetroot ravioli dish. What next? Maybe they’ll have Italy Week next year where the contestants take over the kitchens at the Vatican to prepare a loaves and fishes inspired dinner party for His Holiness, The Pope.

    I thought Masterchef was a bit wanky last night. I mean i like the idea of it, i’m sure it was very special. And nice they helped Ellie, but time was up. Why is she allowed to cook after? Oh because it’s the Dalai Lama. It was just very pretentious.

    So is IKEA a sponsor of The Block or Top Design? Cos i notice an ad for ACA with an “exclusive” on IKEA.

    Does anyone know when a Network airs promos of it’s own programming instead of commercials, are they filling in unsold ad space or are they losing financially by not having a commercial in it’s place?

    The Renovators on TEN for example, If TEN are having some financial woes surely they can put to air some more sponsors rather than giving us a ‘First Look’ at it’s new show 5 times per hour.

    Re: No or little end credits.

    I wish they’d realise if they don’t have end credits they just give permission to flick over quicker. Or that’s what I do. Whereas I’d stick around for the credits. I think it sends the message flick over because we messed this programme up and surely we’ll mess the next one up too. And we’ll do it all night. So flick over now and miss the stuff ups. Too bad they can’t respect their shows so they send the message to viewers they can be trusted not to ruin them and that they are as important as their precious ads i.e. they aren’t messed with and considered sacrosanct. Oh well.

    Do shows still do credits anymore. They always seem to go into the next show. I must admit I didnt mind the way it ended. Maybe instead of going straight into Castle they could have ended it with a black screen to show it had ended then go into Castle. But I liked the end of DA and how everyone was. I mean they have just been told there country is about to go to war. Id look like that to.

    7 still have some shows to come back. Worlds Strictest Parents did well for them last year, not sure how the x factor will go, PTTR, maybe new eps of Border Security but I remember shows that are meant to be back on 7 that have done well for them. But they have won the year anyway.

    During the ad breaks of DA I flicked over to the Indian call centre doco on SBS when they were ringing americans trying to get them to put an ad in the yellow pages. It was funny when they were in this little room in India and they were telling cutomers they were calling from the states. They were pushy buggars to.

    It was a good night for me last night, how brilliant was that season finale for the Mentalist, was the guy shot by Jane really was Red John??

    The sunken house in Grand Design was also really good, I need to build one myself hahaha!

    Glad to know that another couple won the Block last night, otherwise it might really turn into a Josh and Jenna show.

    re going from DA to Castle, Ch7 did that every week with GA into DHW. Smacks of a desperate Network to me, that they can’t allow even a second to pass between 2 shows, in case a viewer chooses on something else to watch.

    I would think a Network would be legally bound to screen opening and closing credits of every show that they put to air? It sort of cheapened the end of DA.

    @Kenny, to bed, where else?

  75. Kieran July 18, 2011 at 12:20 pm -

    @Jezza, I sure did notice that, and I’m sure most others did as well…. I thought it was just going to an adbreak, then the credits rolled about 30 secs into Castle…. what a joke seven…

  76. Joe July 18, 2011 at 12:16 pm -

    Seven Love that AFL lead in to their news. Sets them up for the entire night.

  77. R K July 18, 2011 at 11:38 am -

    I reckon Ch7 should start Great Migration at 6.30pm then Sunday Night at 7.30pm ..then Bones and Castle new ep…

  78. Jezza July 18, 2011 at 10:40 am -

    ch7 will now be very vunerable on Sunday night. DWTS has gone, now DA has finished…great migrations & bones aint gonna deliver. Xfactor will fizzle, the only shows they have for the 2nd half that will deliver will be PTTR & afl in melbourne. Ch9 are resurgent with the crappy block, plus also they have underbelly and the Hamish show to roll out. The landscape is changing again. Funny how ch9 programmers reacted to the success of the block with a sunday ep…..the overkill starts now….

    PS did anyone else notice how badly 7 ended DA last night….war announced….go to the break and then start castle….it left me thinking wtf

    One million switched from TEN at 8:30. Half a mil switched from Nine at 8:30. Half a mil switched to Seven at 8:30. Where did the other one million go?

    Another brilliant epiosde of Downton Abbey and its a shame its finished. As a person who doesnt get into English shows that much this was is outstanding. The telephone scenes were hilarious when Carson was trying to figure out how to use it and when it rang everyone freaked out. Im glad to see the end of Thomas even though he was a fine actor and I still cant believe what Mrs Obrien did. Anyway I guess next year wee will see series 2.

    Sunday night had some good stories. Mike Munro made the right decision to go back to reporting. They didnt need 2 hosts.

    MC was very good last night. Whoever goes home from now on I will be shattered. I like them all and if I was Ellie i’d be using that pin tonight which will leave Billie & Kate to battle it out which is a shame. But it was great they chipped in and helped Ellie out last night. The Dalai Lamar does laugh a lot.
