  1. Has Tangle definitely been axed? I have just finished watching this on DVD and am completely blown away with what a phenomenally good show it is. Catherine McClements in particular is amazing. I really hope they get the funding for season 4

  2. The Mole is definitely a way of Seven distracting TARA fans with a cheaper (yet hopefully just as excellent) Grant Bowler fronted reality game show. I’m excited as for it, but TARA won’t be back I reckon.

  3. Gotta agree with ya Bazza. Breakfast did have flaws but at least it gave you the news and a few genuine laughs each morning unlike the other two.

    Today and Sunrise are really just an excuse for advertisements, self-promotion, and nonsensical giveaways. The ABC’s show is also pretty poor – far too serious for that time of the morning.

    The sooner Ten launch its new Breakfast show the better. Fingers crossed it tries something different and doesn’t try to copy the other 2 networks.
