    Congratulations to The Project. Whilst TEN is copping it at the moment with all the cutbacks, its good to see that they seem to be supporting this show.

    Late night repeats? Now that Lateline’s done for the year it might be a good replacement…

    Snap, it’s on way after 11pm.

    Great show. Hopefully it can stay put in it’s new (actually one of it’s previous) time slots.

    P.S Charlie, take some time to smile a bit more…
